    staff laptop home folder not synchronizing

    Hi,

    Very recently took over a school, so still working things out.

    The other day a teacher had a new windows 7 laptop that they wanted set up. they also wanted the home folder synchronizing (offline files) as they had this on the old xp laptop. This all worked ok.

    This afternoon she got her old xp laptop out and it no longer synchronizes. It does not even try when logging on or off. We then got her new Windows 7 laptop out and although it has the green arrow, it also does not appear to be synchronizing.

    If I left click on the xp laptop home drive I do not get the option to 'make files offline'

    The server has a gp setup which is for enabling offline files and the laptops are in the same OU.

    If I run gpresult /r it does not list the offline files gp.

    The teacher is convinced it's the new windows 7 laptop that has had a knock on effect and caused her xp laptop to stop synchronizing.

    Any ideas how I should proceed?

    Patch the windows 7 machine as per my recommendation in this thread: (Disabling Offline files Server 2008 & Win 7 pro)

    As for the specific behavoiur you are seeing my brain is too frazzled after a manic day to think of a reason why it would occour.

    Going to try and fix the xp laptop rather than Win7.

    Why would I not have the option 'offline files' when I right click on a network drive in xp?
