Making Network Files and Folders Available Offline

The Offline Files feature isn’t available in Windows XP Home edition. Home-edition users can synchronize files with Briefcase, inherited from Windows 98/Me. It’s not as easy to use as Offline Files, but it works. Search for briefcase in Help and Support Center.

Offline Files is designed for travelers who work with a laptop computer that’s often disconnected from the network. When you make a file or folder available offline, Windows makes a temporary copy of it on your laptop; you can work with this copy as you would the original. When you reconnect to the network, Windows synchronizes your laptop documents with the network originals so you have up-to-date versions in both places.
