I am running Windows XP Pro, and have all the latest patches applied.
There are some network shares (one on Win NT 4.0 server, one on Windows 2000
professional) that are set to be offline folders for my computer.
There are 10,000 odd files in these directories.
I don't require either of these directories to be available offline.
But I can not figure out how to turn them off.
If I browse to the directories in explorer (using unc), I can see that the
folder icons are marked as offline.
If I right click on the folder, I can see that "Make available offline" is
But it is also greyed out, and does not allow me to uncheck it.
I have tried going to the parent folder, seting this to available offline
(including sub-folders), and then unchecking "Make available offline" at
this parent folder level (including sub-folders). This stopped the parent
folder from being available offline, but did not fix the child folders.
These are still available offline, and the "Make available offline" menu
item is still greyed out.
I have turned off any synchronization (schedule, on idle, log-on/log-off)
off for these shares, but I still get annoying bubble messages pop up when
ever either of these computers is not on the LAN (regularly).
Is there a way to remove these "offline folders"? (Registry hack?
