    Hi everyone, hoping for some help,

    We have SBS 2003 with 6 users logging onto 6 computers attached to the domain.

    I originally had my laptop attached to the domain and setup offline files to sync. ....however it corrupted my access database on the server (the core of my business - can't be changed) as I had to change Oplocks to get this vista laptop to use offline files, so I have disabled offline files on the laptop.

    Desktops (XP and vista) logged on as this same user operate fine during the day, but are obviously never taken offsite and documents never changed "offline"

    The consequence is that I can't use itunes or the "my documents" folders at home as offline files are deactivated (itunes is VERY unhappy about this). I don't want to activate and deactivate offline documents every day as it requires 2 restarts!

    I want to use the laptop on the domain without having my user using the "my documents" just on the laptop (I hope this makes sense)

    So
    1. How can I use "my documents" when still being logged onto the domain either at home or at work?
    2. I would be prepared to use a separate syncing program that doesn't need oplocks but would like to use the my document pathway on the laptop.
    3. I want the laptop to remain on the domain as it can then access a shared drive on the server without problem (and perhaps use this drive to sync documents to say with goodsync or like).
    4. Alternatively I could accept turning off all "my documents" on my user on the domain if it meant it would unlock the "my documents" folder on the laptop?
    Happy to post more info or better explanation

    Please help
    TIA
    Steve
