I have a laptop running Windows 7.
The user has the letter E mapped to a folder on the server.
The folder is set to be available offline.
Today when the user was working in the office, connected to the network, the mapped E drive started showing up as "offline" with a red X through it, even though the user was online.
I know they were online because they had access to other mapped drives that are not set to be available offline.
After clicking on the mapped E drive, it showed the status to be "online" and the red X went away.
My question is this: If the drive status is "offline" for any amount of time, do they need to run a sych before leaving the office so all the files are synched between the server and the laptop?
Why was the drive showing the status as "offline"?
Any help is appreciated.
