sure you can.

but offline files do not work the way you are describing IE you can't Sync "C:\marketing to a folder on my server  \\server\shared\marketing"

the way it works is you browse to the network folder "\\server\shared\marketing", rightlick it and choose "make available offline"  THAT'S it.

if there happens to be data in the C:\marketing data folder that you want to be in the \\server\shared\marketing directory, simply move it to that directory.  once you enable offline files for that directory, you will always have the data even if you are disconected from the server.

offline files are stored locally in the C:\csc\ directory,,,, you can't choose which local directory they are stored on (and you shouldn't) since that directory is used by the OS, not the user.  The user accesses these files just as they normally would by going to \server\shared\marketing
