Folder Redirection & Offline Files Setup for Mobile Devices(i.e Notebooks and Tablets)
All of the users in the office use Lenovo x61 Tablets or x200 Tablets. There offline files, and folder redirection work correctly.
One user using an x200 tablet pc is experiencing a problem where offline files work if he is connected to the network, and then disconnects, the offline files remain in place and all is well. However, if the user shutdowns his Windows Vista Business(64-bit) tablet pc, disconnects it and takes it off-site, when he starts up again, logs in, his offline files are non-existent. BUT...offline files settings are showing that 36GB of offline files are used. Where the heck are these files disappearing to. The CSC folder is there, the CSC service is started and reporting back successfully. I know his folder is large, 36GB to be exact, but i wouldnt imagine that would be the issue. I have set the group policy settings to allow up 50% of his drive for storage. I look forward to your feedback, experts.
