We have a windows 2003 server setup doing active directory. Recently we have added our first non XP machine. This is a windows 7 pro laptop. All is working fine on the user aspect side of this equation except when the person takes their laptop off network. Normally in xp you would have locally cached files that would later sync when on the net. How ever in windows 7 this does not seem to work. It basically breaks down once the user leaves and they are unable to access their data off network. Is this changeable. All I see online are folder redirection concepts but I dobut this is how i want to approach this.
If you want it to work the same as you have described your XP machines work, just find her profile via the UNC, right click the folder, and make it available offline. Windows Sync should* take care of the rest.
*I say 'should' because Offline Files has a long history of working only most of the time.
our csc cache would get corrupted alot and it was always the compination of nic mismatch ie running half duplex vs auto and not running uphclean. Well with win7 uphclean is builtin but I'd still check the network settings.
forgot to mention that maybe the source SHARE does not have CSC enabled
