If I disable offline files and folders will the files be deleted?

Network_Padawan asked
I am migrating AD profiles from one domain to another. I am comming across laptops with people syncing their laptops with offline folders from remote sites.

I am scared as hell of cutting their profile across and disabling offline folders. Can doing this potentially deleted the files and folders from the server when I re-enable offline folders after the profile migration? (Profile migration is being done via ADMT 3.2 computer migration).

Laptop is windows xp.

Just like a romaing profileIf you disable it, it will not Delete the Profile

If you want to make sure if doesnt, you can always reduce the permissions on the Netwrok Location to Read Only

So no, it wont delete them
