Windows 7 Sync problem

We have a small office network consisting of a PC with an external RAID network drive and a laptop computer. Both computers are running Windows 7 Professional.

I would like to sync files from the external drive with the laptop and I have enabled offline files on the laptop. The offline option appears in the menu when I right click an external dive folder, but it is ghosted. The properties for all folders in the external drive show that files are available offline even though I have not selected them to be available and there is a tick against the ghosted offline menu item.

Any ideas how I can "unghost" the menu item and makew the offline files available?

Hi afbaer. Try changing the permissions to one folder. Just for the test, give full access (read and write) to "All" (without the quotes) and try to sync then. If it works, work from there by adjusting permissions to your users only (and delete "All" from the settings, unless it's a empty test folder or with a test file in it). Comment on the results.
