Using Offline Files to Synchronize Folders

The second way Windows 2000 provides to keep your files in synch is the Offline Files feature, which creates a duplicate of selected desktop folders on your notebook computer. Then, when you specify, the files in your offline folder are synchronized with those on the desktop so that the latest version of each is maintained.

Whenever you are not connected to the network, you still have your offline files and folders available. In My Computer, you can double-click a network drive containing offline files and you do not see an error message. Instead, as you browse through the folders of the network drive, you see only those folders and files you have made available offline as well as their parent folders. You can open, edit, and save files in these folders at will—just as if you were on the network. When you synchronize with the network, new files you created in synchronized folders are added to the network, files you delete are removed, and files you edit are updated.
