Offline Folder Synchronisation Issue

June 10, 2009 at 05:40:50
Specs: Windows XP, 1.6 GHz/1GB

I'm having a problem whereby as soon as I take my laptop off the network I lose all my redirected folders. I get the following message:

\\server\share not accessible. You might now have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of the server to find out if you have access permissions.

the network location cannot be reached. For information about networking troubleshooting, see Windows help.

However, when connected to the network these files all appear.

I'm not sure if this is helpful, but:

1. When right-clicking a document, there is no 'make available offline' option

2. The little up-down arrow that appear on the rest of our redirected desktops over the office do not appear

3. In Windows Explorer, in synchronise, it is telling me that there is nothing to synchronise.

I have not touched anything, so do not understand why this has suddenly become an issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

robbied69, suspect your whole deal hinges on whether or not you're connected.
In order to manipulate a file, it must be available. If you wanna deal with it offline, suspect you need to save a copy to your machine. If this is a file you need to edit, be sure to update it next time you're online.

Have sorted it. For some reason 'Enable Offline Files' was not ticked in Windows Explorer. Can't remember unticking it. Going to set a GPO to stop anyone being able to see this.
