I need a little help with offline files. I have inheretied a network that is was only basically setup. There is about 10 pc and 2 laptops when i got there all pc's and laptops were sync offline files on logon and logoff. I disabled this via group policy for every body. It has nw emerged that a few of the users require require there my docs to be available offline. So i created a new OU on our SBS 2003 server and placed the laptops in there. I created a GPO to enable offline files for these laptops. Now thing is the laptops are syncing lots of different folders i did not tell it to sync this must have been setup before.
How does the laptop now what to sync? And more importantly how i can i remove completely what it is currently syncing?
And if i want to make my docs available offline should it be a simple as right clicking my docs from start menu and going make availalble offline? if so i currently do not have this option

Please help
