    I have my laptop and my desktop networked (peer to peer). They connect fine, and the laptop can read the desktop's drive. But when I set up offline files, the laptop would go on and offline erratically (though remaining connected to the router and the internet). Now, though it can read the files, when I try to synchronize a file to use off-line, more often than not I am told that the drive is no longer available - even though the laptop is at that moment reading it. Sometimes refreshing the view will fix the problem, sometimes it won't. Is there something simple and stupid I might be missing? I don't want to use up one of my two precious calls to Microsoft unless I have to! Thanks.
