Have you tried disabling offline files with CSCCMD?  If you do that, and your GPO applies the folder redirection, maybe it will work.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

I tried this fix on 3 machines (XP SP3) and only one of these worked.  I also ran gpupdate /force on these clients after running this fix.  Any ideas why it worked on only one of these PC's?

Looks like you have all Syncing turned off.  You need at least one method enabled,...preferably at logon,  otherwise it will never be synced ever.

Unless you want to eliminate Offline files completely,..which is fine.  Last time I did that I just wasted my time with GPOs.  I had to go to each machine locally and kill it personally with my own fingers,...and had to tell it if I wanted it to move the remote files back to the local machine.

Have you tried running csccmd.exe

hopefully CSCCMD.exe /DISABLE would disable it at the client end, and then your GPO would have better effect.

Regards,

all we are trying to do is My Doc redirection.  If a user makes changes to something in there My Docs it is updated on the fly to their user directory on the server.  I just can't get it to stop syncing at logoff for certain people.  It seems to be hit or miss there is no specific OU or group of users that this is happening too.  its like maybe an issue on some of the local machines.....wierd.
