Re: Disable Offline Files In Windows Vista

Thats a good idea to disable offline folders in your network or simply to avoid the problems that will inevitably crop up when users try to take advantage of offline folders. To make it disable, go through this steps:-

1) Click Start menu button and type gpedit.msc in the search box and press Enter key.

2) In the Local Group Policy Editor click to expand the folder Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files in the left pane.

3) Now double click the option Prevent use of Offline Files folder as highlighted above

4) In the Prevent use of Offline Files folder Properties window click on the dot Enabled to prevent use of Offline Files.

5) Click Apply and then OK button.

6) Close Local Group Policy Editor window and restart your computer.

Thats it..

Re: Disable Offline Files In Windows Vista

Offline folders are useful many times. This maintains a local cache of remote files and folders on your Windows computer, so that they are available to you when you are working offline, improving the experience for mobile (laptop) users.

You continue to access these files in the same way that you accessed them when you were online because the shared network resource paths and name spaces are preserved.When your network connection is restored, any changes that you made while working offline are updated to the network by default.
