Offline Files and Folders Directory Structure
Posted on 2006-04-13
Hello! I read one question/answer regarding this but my question is a slightly different scenario. I have laptop users who need to sync their network-based data with a local copy so that they can work when they travel. I have used the cachmov.exe utility to move the offline store to the users' 'd' drives (local NTFS drives with lots of storage as opposed to their 'c' drives). The problem is, as was mentioned in another post, that all the data from their network directory is dumped into the offline folder, without re-creating the directory structure that exists in their network directory. (For a user with 8GB of files, that's a mess). In Exchange 2003/Outlook, when a user archives, the directory structure in the exchange mailbox is automatically re-created in the archive. I'd like to bring that same 'ease of use' experience to the users when they sync their files as they connect and disconnect from the network. Is there an easy way around this disorganized file-dump without rolling out a bunch of group policies? Thanks!
