Hi,

I have 2 nas Synology which I configured with dfs shares.

Now there is some content on this nas/dfs which I would like to sync to my laptop -Windows 2008- (and vice versa:new content should be synced back).
Would offline files be good for this purpose?

That is exactly what it is for but when you enable the offline files don't enable for all files.. First upload the files to the NAS and only access them from the NAS.. whether you are connected or NOT

Good Practice and default option
Only the files and programs that users specify are available offline. This is the default option when you set up a shared folder. By using this option, no files or programs are available offline by default, and users control which files and programs they want to access when they are not connected to the network

Ok, but I now see offline files or for windows workstation only(?)
My "guest" is also Windows 2008. Maybe I could use dfs then.

It seems to work also for Windows 2008 but I 'd like to change location of offline folders now.

Ok, that works. Only wonder if it works when I'm not logged on to the computer.
Do you know?
