Best configuration for large data user offsite

I have a busy executive who keeps thousands of documents on our server 2008.
I set him up for offline synchronization so that he could always access his files.
He is complaining that it is slow to complete and often does not finish. He connects to our vpn when he is out of the office as a way to allow the syncing to happen more regularly.
I was just wondering.....I have his folders redirected to the server, so,
#1 am I doubly redirecting?
#2 Would it possibly work better to turn off offline sync and have him just connect to the vpn when offsite to have his redirected folders come up instead of syncing?

Redirected folders need to be available offline for them to be accessible.

An alternative is to have a separate share which the user can use as an archive without having them available while the VPN is down.

It is always a good idea to have the user files sync up to a server where they can regularly be backed up in the event the laptop dies, the loss is limited to the newly created/modified files.

Does the individual have the option of "archiving" some documents out of the my documents into a dedicated share for them (This type of change should only be done while on the LAN)?  This way the number of files to synchronize is reduced.
Do you have an internal version control system with a web interface that the user would consider using?
