scratching my head over this one, can anyone help
I have a small home network, 2 PC's and a latop, all PC's are running XP Pro, for backup reasons i want to redirect the My Documents folders to a shared drive called users on my main PC, but i cant get file sync to work for the redirected folders. on the properties of the redirected folders it says that the location is U:\****** but does not give the option to MAKE AVAILABLE OFFLINE, anyone know if this can be done in a work group.
Thanks in advance

Found the answer if anyone is interested
In order to enable offline folders and files you must first turn off FAST USER SWITCHING, to do this go to control panel, users, and change the way you log on on, turn off FAST USER SWITCHING and WELCOME screens, you can now redirect your My Documents to a network drive and setup synchronize files so they are available offline, easy form of backup of criticla data.
