I'm trying to make a shared folder available offline. When I right-click on the file or folder I want to share there is no "Make Available Offline" option. Why is this and how can I fix it/is there another way to make the files available offline? I have Windows XP Pro and offline files are set to manual caching of documents.
Going on "When I right-click on the file or folder I want to share there is no "Make Available Offline" option" I am assuming this is on the PC that hosts the file.
You will need to be on the remote PC, and have the share Mapped as a drive, to use the "Make this folder Available Offline". The folder, which you share on your PC, is stored there, so automatically available "offline".
To map a new drive on the remote PC, go to My Computer > Tools Menu > Map Network Drive.
Ok so it turns out the problem is that one computer is xp pro, the other is home. I thought on home you could view offline files just not create/share them yourself but it turns out you can't use them at all. At least not the way I was trying to do it.
Do you know if your suggestion would work with XP home also?
