Offline File Sync GPO Windows 2008 R2

thomasm1948 used Ask the Experts™
Hi All,

I am trying to setup offline file sync GPO.  I know that there are 2 places that have to be configured:

 - User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files
 - Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline File

The part that I do not understand is how to force offline sync with specific directories or if there are already specific directories that is automatically synced.  I know users can choose which folders to sync but I am not sure if they have to do the selection

Thank you for your help in advance
