asked on


I have taken over a 2003 Server system set up by some one else. All the data is held both on teh client machines and on teh server and is syncronized each time the user logs off - how can I stop this happening and just have the data on teh Server. Some of the client machines are struggling under teh mass of data they are storing.

Hi jontyplatt,

From the workstation, right click on the folder that is on the server and untick "make available offline"

You may be talking about My Documents redirection, in which case, right click on the My Documents folder and hit properties, in there, set target to default and go OK - when it asks, allow it to move the files

Hope that helps,
