how do offline files work

By NatCat ·
Hi Techies,
DO offline files in w2k work by copying files from the server to the client. Or does it check for changes to the files and append any differences in the 2 versions of the file ?
I'm asking because I have a WAN set up and the offsite users will use files up to 4 mbs(autocad files) in size and I need to find a way to centralize/standardise the location of my files

Offline files are stored on the local system. From a file perspective, the entire file would have to be replaced for the most current to be resident on the local system. There is no way from a file perspective to identify what has changed and merely do an append.

There are ways to manage data so that only changes are transmitted. These are application and data structure issues rather than off line file or OS issues. The right approach for you will depend on the specific application you use, the business requirements associated with the use of that application, and your openess to change.

Depending on the size of your circuit to this user, offline files might be perfect for you to use. You should look into that.
