All of a sudden for no apparent reason, my bosses "My Documents" folder (and all files and folders inside) now has two little blue arrows at the bottom left of the icon & every file/folder inside. My research keeps pointing me in the direction of outlook. Something to do with making files available offline and synchronization, but Im not sure if Im even on the right track. So Ive decided to spend the money and trust in experts exchange. Lets see if its as good as I hope it is. Please help! Thanks in advance.
So heres exactly what happened, although most of this is probably irrelevant.
Bosses hard drive starts ticking yesterday morning. Not too big of a deal because her "My Documents" folder is stored on our server. So all I had to do after buying a new drive and installing XP Pro was to right-click the local "My Documents" folder and point it to the one on the server. Peace of cake as Im sure you know. When i did it, I honestly cant remember if the blue arrows were on all the icons immediately, she brought it to my attention this morning so Im doing my best to get rid of them.
System is using Windows XP Pro with Microsoft Office 2003.
