Hi All,

I use offline folders to keep my stuff available when off
the network. It works fine, sync's and everything, but if
I create a new folder within one of the synced folders, it
never gets picked up as something to sync. They are all
under the same root (My Documents), the only way I have
fingured to catch everything is to manually uncheck the
box on the root folder, then recheck it and select "all
subfolders" should be available offline.

Not very elegant, and I know I will forget one day and
miss somethign. Is there anyway for this to be automatic
and include the new folders?

You need to change a group policy setting to make this work:

In addition to Jeffrey's reply:

....or perhaps ditch Offline Files. I've personally shunned it for years as
there are too many potential problems. Check out www.centered.com for an
inexpensive alternative - I use it on all my clients' laptops. They have a
free fully functional eval version available for download.

I don't work for them - I just like their stuff.
