VBScript to auto-clear "Enable Offline Files" setting
Posted on 2006-10-24
Our agency has recently begun using Ghost to re-image PCs when deemed necessary. The image we use is provided by our parent organization and we cannot change it. One of the recent tweaks they made to the image was that the Default User profile has the "Enable Offline Files" setting checked (under Folder Options in Windows Explorer). This was done because the same image we use for our desktops is also used for our laptops--where such a setting actually serves a useful purpose. For our desktop users, this setting is not only unncessary, but terribly confusing--whenever the user logs off, they get confusing messages about "synchronizing files," or worse, error messages telling them that "such-and-such file cannot be synchronized."
What I want to do is add a statement to the logon script for our desktop PC users, that clears this setting.
Can this be done?
