Windows 7 sync with network mapped Documents folder

All my users have their "My Documents" folders mapped to a network location. I have 1 user on a laptop and have setup offline file sync. However, his mapped Documents folder does not seem to sync when he logs on and/or logs off.

I believe I followed all the required steps and have enable offline files on that folder. What am I missing?

and you checked the box for sync when this user logs on or logs off?
sounds simple, but its something to check first.

I'm sure I did, but just to be sure, where is this option located?

Also, are there security restrictions to syncing with a mapped "documents" folder that I should be aware of?

Make sure that you made the files available offline on the server.  This has tripped me up before when setting up offline files.  There should be something about 'caching' under the share properties.

The problem with setting the "caching" on the server side is that I have tons of users' folders in that share folder, but I only want 1 of the users to have files available offline.

How would I work that issue?

You would only enable offline files on that user's user account.
