Good day. I'm having trouble setting up Offline Files/Folders on my XP Pro laptops from a W2K3 file server. My users' My Documents folders are redirected to my W2K3 server's D: drive, so when they're in the office, they point directly to the server and not localy (risking file loss in the event of local drive failure).
However, what I want to do is set only certain files and folders in their fileservernamed$userhomefolderMy Documents folders to synchronize when they log off the server; and then bring the files/folders down to their d: or e: drives so that when they logon away from the network, their selected files/folders are there. Then, when they return to the office, their offline files sync back up to the above noted folder path, their work is saved back up there.
On the laptops, I enable offline files/folders. When I go to their home folders, all of their files/folders are selected and can not be de-selected individually - it's all or nothing. The "Make Available Offline" option is greyed out. Some of my users have large My Documents folders, and we can't have all of these synching down and up.
Am I doing something wrong when I enable them? Why are they all synching? I don't want to create a different file location to sync from because users' Home folders are very well structured and it's easy for them to navagate around in.
Please help. Thank you in advance.
