Hi all,

shared file structure as follows:

\\servername\sharename\
dir1a\
file1, file2, file3
dir1b\
file4, file5, file6
dir1c\
file7, file8, file9
dir2a\
etc.....

Drive H: mapped to \\servername\sharename\

windows explorer. right click on H:\dir1a
choose "make available offline" choose "YES" for subfolders as well
choose "make shortcut on desktop" click finish
wait for synchronization.

open from desktop: "shortcut to offline files"

all files, ie: file1 - file9 are in root of offline files
NO DIRECTORIES/SUBFOLDERS

HELP?????


TIA

Al

Viewing the files in the "Offline Files Folder" from the shortcut will show you all offline files on the one screen. This is normal.

If you go to your H: you will see dir1a and all the files and folders in it will have a blue shortcut type arrow on them showing that these files are available offline.

If you disconnect from the network you will still have access to those files/folders via the H:
