    One more for luck :
    File corruption occurs when you perform file operations on a file server that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

    Just came up against this problem on our new 2008 R2 servers.

    Managed to install RSAT on my windows 7 machine and disable the service! thanks for the help, I had a few false starts with this one

    @Michael cheers for this, was mucking about with this yesterday and that sorted the sync annoyance.
    Irritating that its on by default as during testing it downloaded a huge wadge of users' files unnecessarily >:-0

    One other thing I noticed was that on the file server I had to disable caching on the actual share.

    Oh? What happens for you when caching is enabled?
    Once the workstation has had the service disabled, for me, the offline-i-ness was stopped and can't see a way a user can do anything.

    I found two settings that told the client to wait for network during login did the trick. Not at school so not sure which group policy it was, but it was a simple fix for me. I can post the info on Monday unless anyone can jump in.
