Offline files and sync center

1) If open my computer, my H drive appears to be available “offline”, there is a green symbol next to the drive with 2 yellow arrows in my computer. Can I take it then that EVERYTHING within that H drive is available offline, or whether it’s just certain files within that folder – if it’s just certain files, where can you check??

2) Also – our H drive is essentially a personal network share, we also as part of our logon get 2 other network directories mapped, that are essentially team directories where work related files go. How easy is it to set those up for offline/sync access – and from a manager/admin standpoint what overhead is there in making all drives mapped as part of a login process available offline/syncable, as it would could in very handy for offline working on our team directories, not just our home directories. I guess there must be a reason why it’s only made available for homes, so please enlighten me from a tech standpoint.

If its any relevance the client devices "offline" are Windows 7, the server it syncs to are DFS 2008
