To make network Drive/Folders available Offline

I am trying to make Network Drive/folders available Offline

-I have enabled offline folder capacity through folder options
-create shortcut to offline folder in desktop
-set to syn on log off and On
- Right clicked folders i want to make it available offline and set it to "Make Available Offline"

Now it seems to be syncrozing okay.

Problem
When i am offline and double click "shortcut offline file" from desktop, it gives me all list of files under folders (But actual folder doesn't display). It is really inconvinient to find file i want as i got too many.

What is best way of accessing offline files when i am offline?
How i can get folders in "offline files section" rather than list of all files

Help Please

Personally, I get around this very issue by using Dropbox.  Completely free, very light install, complete file syncing in real time on the fly. I understand you may be trying to do this within your current windows installation, and may need something free.  If you are unable to install software; on say, your work laptop, you could always try Microsoft Office Workspace. http://workspace.officelive.com/en-us/

https://www.dropbox.com/

Personally, I feel this is a great option for your needs and have listed the reasons why below.

Dropbox Features

File Sync

Work on files in your Dropbox even if you're offline. Your changes sync once your computer has an Internet connection again.
Dropbox transfers will correctly resume where they left off if the connection drops.
Efficient sync - only the pieces of a file that changed (not the whole file) are synced. This saves you time.

Your network drive that you are accessing is maped? If it is maped just goto it like normal while you are offline & it will look the same as if you are online.

If the folder is not maped try map it to a drive letter & see how that works for you.

Are they mapped via login script?

If so, logon to a cached profiile, and then reconnect and map them manually, which will cache them in the registry. Then see if it is available offline.....
