You can find all of your offline file settings through GPO at this location - Computer Config -> Admin Templates -> Network -> Offline Files

Here you should be able to dial it down to just what you want to do with offline syncing, files, etc.

the problem is when the user login ang log off the synchronise is starting all the files those were already synced to the server and this process will takes a time and it's like repeating the processs.

The issue is how can I hide from the user seeing the syncing process when they login and when they log off.

I don't think there is a way to "hide" the syncing feature. You can set it to where it only syncs on logon or logoff instead of both. But under Windows XP, I believe it is always going to show the files syncing.

Per this article, there is no way to hide syncing in XP. Windows Vista or 7 it syncs in the background, XP does not -

If it is set to sync on both logon and logoff, it will do it every time. Check the policies in the location I sent you above. If it is set to sync both, then it is doing what the policy is telling it to do and you may want to change the GP.

GPO at this location - Computer Config -> Admin Templates -> Network -> Offline Files

Thanks now my Computer Config -> Admin Templates -> Network -> Offline Files is not configured at all also I can choose enable sync only either the log on or log off from the windows xp so do I need to enable from the server or the client.
