I have 1 user who needs to sync her files for off line use.  I don't remember how to do this. The server the user will be accessing is server 2008 r2 and the machine is windows 7.

If you  have not yet enabled Offline Folders, open Control Panel > Sync Center > manage Offline files > 

Click on the general tab and choose Enable offline files if it is not already selected.

Yes.

Now if you want to re-direct her Documents folder etc. that is a separate process.

OK the docs are already redirected to the server.  The user maps a drive \\server\share\%username%  I just need to have this available off line  If memory serves I need to do this on the users PC.
