Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The major changes to Offline Files for Windows 7 includes improved file access and an improved network file experience for users. Before doing this keep in your mind :

  1. Fast first logon
  2. Usually Offline support with Background Sync
  3. Exclusion list
  4. Transparent Caching

Transparent Caching is not enabled by default. IT administrators can use a Group Policy setting to enable Transparent Caching, improve the efficiency of the cache, and configure the amount of hard disk drive space that the cache uses.
