Please HELP!!!!

I have a laptop, not on a domain, but is in a workgroup. There are no domain policies, I have enabled offline files and i can select folders to be offline, but some files where already selected, now when i try and remove these files from being offline it will not allow me as the Make Availible offline is grayed out?

I can delete the files but once i reboot or refresh explorer the files appear to be availible offline.

    Accepted Solution

    You may want to restart the offline files cache. See details here:

    If that is not it, please provide a few more details such as what type of network drive the folders are on.

    Thank you,
