    Offline Files Button - Greyed out

    Over the summer hols I installed new W7 pcs in two suites and rebuilt/upgrade two XP suites to W7

    We had an issue with some pupils unable to access their home folders (network drives were fine)

    I found that if I disabled Offline Files in Sync Centre this resolved the issue on the older PCs that were upgraded.

    But, on the brand new PCs, the "Disable Offline Files" button is greyed out - How do I re-enable this button?

    Seems weird that it was greyed ou on some PCs but not others?

    Is there a reg key that will re-enable it?

    Cheers

    I was also having this issue with new Windows 7 PC's but then realised I had automatically joined them to my domain as part of our setup procedure.
    Once I removed them from the domain and logged in as Administrator the "Disable Offline Files" button was no longer greyed out.
    Then rejoin them to your domain and your good to go.
