Chapter 23. Accessing and Using Your Network > Synchronizing Offline Files

Synchronizing Offline Files

When you reconnect to the network, Windows Vista automatically synchronizes the files. This means that Windows Vista does two things: First, it updates your local copy of an offline folder by creating copies of any new or changed files in the shared network folder. Second, it updates the shared network folder with the files you changed while you were offline. This synchronization occurs automatically when you log on to the network and when you log off the network. You can also synchronize the offline files yourself. You have four choices:

  • Open the shared network folder and click Sync in the task pane

  • Open the Sync Center, click View Sync Partnerships, double-click Offline Files, select the offline folder, and click Sync

  • Open the Sync Center, click View Sync Partnerships, double-click Offline Files, and click Sync All

  • Right-click the Sync Center icon in the notification area, and click Sync All
