Client caching network drives

6 posts in this topic

Scenario:

Windows server 2008 r2 with folder redirection and roaming profiles enabled, objective is for profile to follow user and any files saved on machine to sync with server when rejoined to network via offline file system.

Issue:

Windows without asking also caches the huge network drives. So the set space eventually gets filled with junk and there is no more room left for simple documents so they can't get saved.

Is there any way to stop this? Only want stuff in folders I specify as offline cached, no the network drives.

The issue is that offline folders is not enabled but the files are being cached anyway on network drives.

Disable roaming profs and stick with folder redirection.

so in sync center in your control panel its says offline files is disabled, then how do you know its filling up a cache of network drives?

I want to keep roaming profiles on, folder redirection doesn't have all the same settings following the user. Offline files is enabled, but it is not enabled on the network drives, just the user folders.
