Hello all,
I just set up a file server with so far, one file share on it. I have folders for each member of my family including me, and I plan to set them up with network drives that drop them into their respective places so that no one steps on each other's toes and so that no one tries to accidentally edit the same file at the same time. My problem is that though I have set up caching for offline files on all of the clients, I cannot access the file share offline while the server is off (I had to shut it down today due to my dad helping me replace the power cord when Dell originally sent me the wrong one). This was a good time to test it, and as suspected, I got too error messages, one saying that the connection had not been restored, and the other saying that it couldn't reconnect \\katherine-serv to my S drive which is the network drive. If I have offline files enabled, shouldn't I be still granted access, it's just that the files wouldn't sync with the server while I'm not on the LAN? And to give you the information, I also enabled offline files on the server as well, so it will cache there too. I didn't however, enable branch cache since I wouldn't want to upload those files anywherre since we don't need them served from anywhere else, we just need access to them while not on my home network. Any help you folks can offer would be awesome. And please do let me know if this is something simple. Thanks.

Hi again,
It's been a long time. am I missing some information? I ask because no one seems to have seen this type of thing. I'm not in an Active Directory environment. Both my Windows server 2008 server and Windows 7 laptop are in the same workgroup to my knowledge. Let me know if i need to test out anything else. Thanks.

You might want to look at this: Working with network files offline

I am thinking that perhaps the fies had not been synced yet and that is why they didn't show up.

Maybe it's also because it's a mapped drive? maybe those don't work offline? I just looked at the link you throw out, and there's nothing about the mapping of drivees. And it didn't seem to apply to when it's a server and a client OS trying to communicate.

Oh wow. ... that one's a double woopsy! Firstly, it comes to show how much of a moron I am, since I did forget to initially sync the network drive, and secondly, as my last post shows, my fingers aren't in typing mode this evening. Sorry about that.
