We have a user who is using large files, instead of working on the network he is copying files locally for better performance. This isn't ideal as its a manual process to try and keep documents synced.

I have been looking into the Windows 7 Offline Files features, and have found how to make a folder available offline - then tell Windows to work offline in that folder. The Problem... is that Windows then treats the whole of the root DFS share as offline, sibling folders of the offline folders are showing with a folder icon with a grey X. Sibling folders to the parent folder (of the offline folder) dont show up at all.

I would like to be able to make 1 specific folder available offline and work in offline mode for that folder, but not every other folder on the same share. Any ideas how, or if this is even possible?
