user on xp machine had my documents redirected to his home drive on server (not made available offline) when he went to save a file it would default to his mapped drive... all good. he gets new windows 7 machine but cannot map as it is not indexed. I don't want the drive available offline I want it to work as before. is this possible if so how I want to avoid group policy if possible. thanks
