Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Some users are seeing grey boxes on folder icons. This indicates that they are viewing the offline folders.

How do I determine...

  1. Did it go offline due to a slow link?
  2. Is it trying to reconnect automatically?

How can I force it to check again for server availability?

Server 2008r2 standard client: win7 pro.

You can sent conditions and settings for offline files form windows 7 by going to sync center. Open Sync Center by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Sync Center. This will allow you to turn on or off going offline for a slow link and also determine when it will go online and resync.
