You can enable/disable this per folder. Adjust the cache settings in the Shared Folder options pane of the shared folder in which you want to make the files available offline or not.

Certain files can't be made availble offline...

these are things such as database files, pst files, etc...

you can specify whcih folders you want to be available offline, and which ones you don't want to be availble...it can be done on a per file or folder basis.

if you are using folder redirection, these folders are automatically set to be offline...
