windows 8.1 sync allways avaliable offline - but not functioning

I cannot make my server shares available offline after upgrading to  windows 8.1.

I can see the old settings work cos I had one share set up for sync in win8.0 .

Now when I try to use the " allways avaliable offline" - on the share nothing happens. The sync icon is not shown at the process line - so I thought the service was off.

I tried to look into the problem and cant find the service on my win8.1.
I have network sharing enable and network discovery - It was working in win7 and win8 but now in win8.1 I cannot make new sync to a share. ..

The sync center shows my old ofline network share and it look fine and synchronisation is working for that part.

Have you tried to remove the old share, restart computer, create a new share and make it available offline?

Yes but now I reversed my pc to win8.0 and now its working briliantly - also my "libraries" are back where they should be.

I guess there is still som bugfixning to do in 8.1 and will not recommend it cos it makes the pc more heavy and installs extra unusefull apps.

I removed apps using powershell just to keep my windows clean and fast for a hard worming expert :) thx anyway

I found out at last the settings or miconfiguration - but anyway there was NO possibility in win8.1 to see the offline folder avaliable setting so I guess its missing still .

I found out after creating another user in win 8.0 that when I tryed the "availble offline setting" I got "Acess denied" -. I thought it was just permissions mixing it up but finally I discovered that the setting on the server is only working without Terminal services.

Its says in folder options - offline file . "offline files are not avalible working with multible instances ogf remote desktop"

So in fact something I should have known as a server expert - I clearly understand you should avoid synchronization if you work also on terminal
Cos the sync then needs 2 ways sync which is too complicated for the stupid Windows system.
Anyway I want the setting for one share - so I go back and disable terminal services and remote desktop . Then sync the folder . Then enable remote desktop again.
