Offline files not available offline
Posted on 2010-01-04
I have a Windows 7 64 bit Pro notebook running on a SBS 2008 domain. I have enabled offline folders and folder redirection. In Windows 7 I have set the options for the documents folder to be "always available offline". My problem is that the files are not available offline. With the notebook disconnected from the server several icons vanish from the desktop and the documents directory shows 3 files instead of hundreds. Checking under the directory \users\username\Documents I don't see any files
I just did some further checking and this problem also affects the Vista 32 bit systems as well as our 1 XP system. Under the directory \users\username I cannot find a documents directory.
This sounds more like an SBS issue.
What settings do I need to check or adjust so that the files and folders are available whether the notebooks are connected to the domain or not.
