Offline Files not working - possible idiot question
So I've set up offline files on a colleagues laptop which seem to be syncing OK, however when they actually take it offline and try to log in on their domain account it takes forever, and then comes up with an error saying 'failed to load profile' and that network path could not be found; well of course it can't be found because the damn thing is offline!!! So it loads a temp profile and none of my colleagues files or folders are present.
Am I missing something fundamental here? I thought once they'd logged in and built a local profile they could then log in when outside the network and have access to their offline files?
Is it worth me bothering with offline files anymore?
Thanks in advance

By default Windows caches the roaming profile on the local machine under the c:\users folder. This is a completely separate process to the offline files feature.
The profile share should not be available offline: The share hosting the profiles must disable client side caching
Since the profile share should not be available offline, if you have set profiles to delete at log-off or you are trying to log users on for the first time while offline then this is expected behaviour.
