    Synchronise Offline files?

    Ours pupils have redirected My Documents, a global desktop, mapped drives and run a mandatory default profile, our staff have the same except for the global desktop and run a roaming profile. The question is can I tun off the synchronise offline files on the GPO without causing problems as some PC's seem top have it turned on and some not. Do I just turn it off in GPO, gpupdate and job done or do I have to visit each PC? Noticed on here someone said about turning it off for mapped drives but would that not be covered by the GPO setting or do I need to do something else as well? A nice Thursday problem to start off with :-( (~6 more getups to go)
