    Offline files

    Something ive tended to ignore but getting few alerts by staff on this mainly by the SLT now.

    problem -
    Some staff don't see folders they have created between computers namely due to offline files issues i guess. on one affected machine i tried sync all but kept getting error conflicts etc.

    Managed to work around and get access to the folder after but wondering if i turn off offline files from FPO will that cause issues on files that have not been synchronized yet?

    thanks in advance

    We've had quite a few issues with offline files, and have disabled it fully now... We had to copy the files to a local drive before disabling, because - as you suggested - if changes haven't been synced yet, they'll be lost...

    We're encouraging staff to use the remote access on laptops at home rather than relying on other methods...

    When I worked in a school, i disabled this feature completely. It was more hassle then its worth!
    I would copy the files somewhere safe, and then disable

    I need to get staff into the habit of doing the remote logon thing... I hate offline files!

    Give staff some notice to backup files, then do it?
