Working with Offline Files and the Sync Center

One of the main advantages of setting up a small network in your home or office is the ease with which you can share files and folders with other users. You simply share a folder with the network, and other users can use their Network folder to open the shared folder and work with the files.

However, this benefit is lost when you disconnect from the network. For example, suppose that you use a notebook computer to connect to the network while you are at the office. When you take the notebook on the road, you must disconnect from the network. Fortunately, you can still get network access of a sort when you disconnect from the network (or are offline). Windows Vista (Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate) has an Offline Files feature that enables you to preserve copies of network files on your computer. You can then view and work with these files as though you were connected to the network.
