I've created a GPO that enables offline files for laptop users in a specific site OU meaning the setting on the client (Windows XP Pro SP2) in Explorer I Tools I Folder Options I Offline Files tab that reads 'Enable Offline Files' is ticked but greyed out i.e. it's enabled in group policy but the user can't change it.

My question is this: is there a way to allow the user to check or uncheck the box manually i.e. so that it's not greyed out? I've tried changing it to Not Configured in the policy but this hasn't worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
