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

There is no limitation on which folders/files are available offline. It's just a matter of how they are set up on the server. The only issue is the local storage space because those offline files have to be cached locally on each machine. But other than that, there are no issues.


Here's a Technet article that walks you through the finer points.
