Win 7 Offline files not working

On a domain, windows 7 OS workstation, when choosing the "always available offline" on a network share nothing happens, the option is there it just does nothing, no menu no dialogue. No options in Sync centre other than telling me to do the above, doesn't seem to be any correlation between users, some seem to work the odd other doesn't.

Systems are built from an SCCM image so all start out equal, users inhabit the same OU on the AD so are pulling the same security policy. Had a google but most people having issues with the sync option being missing rather than doing nothing at all. Any hints greatly appreciated

Well, after much googling, I got nowhere :( changed permissions to the parent directories of the home folder with no avail. Then as a test I sync'd one file on a different network location and lo and behold it worked, went back to the home tried to synch and hey presto it kicked in. All previous changes had been tested as non functional and file permissions had been reset to their original states so absoloutly no idea what the heck has gone on :| Either way system now functioning as intended, perhaps one of MS's feaures, not a bug ;)

please feel free to close.
