Offline Files and Folder redirection
Posted on 2009-07-14
I have been having some trouble with a laptop user that uses folder redirection. We recently changed our File server and i have been having a lot of trouble redirecting the users current offline file synchronization (the old file server) to the new location. I followed the MS document for disabling redirection then re-enabled it. But fro some reason it reverts back to the old file server name.
I did some research on folder redirection and offline folders and found that these 2 things are different and can be enabled in different ways, but when i ran a test I found that when i enabled folder redirect for a users desktop (to their file server share) it automatically enabled Offline files.
Why is this? and why can i not disable it ( the option is greyed out).
