Offline files / sync files disappear until you sync?
Posted on 2007-11-26
on an SBS 2003 R2 network, user (boss) has a laptop, so RWW isn't available when traveling. He uses VPN.
He's saying that some files that he created when in the office (and saved on a shared folder) weren't visible when, out of the office, he VPN'd to the shared folder or when offline (he has offline files set up for this shared folder).
I am thinking he didn't sync on the way out that day, so the files were only on the server. then when VPN'ing, the system was looking at the offline files folder which was missing the files? He had to manually force a sync over the VPN? is there a right / wrong way to do this - use files, VPN, work in and out of office?
