Synchronizing

By dawna ·
There is a way, I have done it, but cannot remember what I did. Someone please help before this drives me out the window!
XP Pro, w/SP2, when you change the destination folder of "My Documents" to a mapped network drive, it automatically does a synchronize at log off.
How do you stop it?
And no, it is not in accessories-synchronize. This shows you what is being synchronized, but does not remove the feature to where it stops and removes the arrows on the "My Documents" folder.

you could use the unc path instead of a mapped drive in the My Documents destination path?
did you see this one:
you can edit the registry yourself or set a group policy which sounds like the way to go to me.

- Open Windows Explorer
- Click Tools
- Folder Options
- Offline Files tab

On that tab you'll find the settings to enable/disable synch at logon, logoff, or altogether. If they are greyed out they may be set through a policy.

If you are using SBS 2003 it is turned on by default. You can create a batch file to call another which contains the user names home directories.EG nocache.bat
@echo off
net share %1 /cache:none

EG: nocachusers.bat
@echo off
call c:\nocache.bat user$
