Sync Center option not available on certain network drives
I've got a bit of a weird one with a teacher's laptop. I installed Windows 7 Enterprise however her mapped my documents folder doesn't have the option to make available offline when you right-click it yet other mapped drives (SIMS drive) do. So when you go to My Computer, right click the network drive in which her documents lie and there's no option to make available offline. I'm certain there's no offline file restrictions in GPO and it doesn't work for me either (when I'm logged in as an admin). I thought Windows 7 offline files sync was sposed to be easier than the awful XP one. I have done some research and a lot of people either say the usual 'clear offline files cache' or 'check GPO'.
I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem with Windows 7 laptops? I'm so glad only about three of our teachers have school laptops.
Thanks in advance

Double check that on the share for her documents that under the "Caching" button that it allows offline files sync.
If that doesn't work you can force the Sync Center to reinitialize by doing a quick regedit:
