When you need to work offline, SBS 2008 working with Windows 7 Professional Offline Files provides a great way to continue to work with documents and files stored on your corporate network. Offline files are quickly synched with work server when you reconnect to corporate network. By working with offline files, you can: Protect yourself from network outages; Work with files while you’re away from network; Easily sync with network files; Boost your efficiency when working over a slow connection. You can plan ahead and choose network files you want to make available offline, which automatically creates a copy of network files on your computer. User folders, Desktop, documents, and Start Menu can all be redirected to the server, where any files saved there will be made available offline for clients, no matter which computer they use. You can configure this feature in User Account Properties on SBS server. Windows will automatically sync your offline files for you and open them whenever network versions are unavailable; for e.g., when you disconnect your laptop computer from your intranet and work from a remote location.
