Hi Experts
We are searching for a solution to sync a random folder with the server, and make this folder available offline as well.
And we are not talking about folder redirection for my documents, it is just a regular folder that sits in D drive let's say.
Thanks

Typically how you would do this, is to move the data to the server share > right click on the folder > select "Make Available Offline" ... this will create a folder sync with that particular folder on the server making it available when your out of the office. You can work in it and when you get back to the office it syncs the changed data to the server.

thanks renazonse
The problem is once I made those files available offline, it will start to create a copy of those files on to my C: Drive. I do not want to do that, because the size of C drive is fairly small.
I only want the files on D: drive let's say to sync with the server

To move the cache location from C: to D: in Vista follow this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937475

for XP and 2000 there's a "cachemov.exe" tool...attached (remove .txt from the file name) or download it here: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Litmus/tools_ezine.htm#CacheMov

thanks, it is a great tool
After I tested it, I realized there are only certain type of files can be accessed offline, like .txt files
.msi and .jpeg files can not be accessed so far

Are you sure it's finished synchronizing? By default only these file types are blocked from the synch

db?
.ldb
.mdb
.mde
.mdw
.pst
.slm  

If you continue to have problems with the offline files you can try synctoy: http://www.microsoft.com/DOWNLOADS/details.aspx?familyid=C26EFA36-98E0-4EE9-A7C5-98D0592D8C52&displaylang=en
