Windows 7 Pro Offline Files will not activate
I have a very frustrating issue with one of our teacher laptops, for which I can't find a fix anywhere:
It's a brand new laptop, and the final thing I want to do after building it is to make the user's network share available offline. I have done this before on several other Windows 7 Pro machines on our network with no problems.
However, when I try to enable offline files (from Sync Center, Manage Offline Files), I get the message 'Offline files is enabled but not active. Reboot to activate.' I have restarted multiple times, but the same message appears every time and the 'Make available offline' option does not appear when right-clicking the share I want to sync.
I've tried disabling then re-enabling offline files. Same message appears.
I've tried looking at GPO settings to check it's not turned off in there, which it isn't.
I've changed a registry key which forces a rebuild of the sync database. No change.
Has anyone got any clues as to where to look next?
