I have Win7 Enterprise on my computer, and have added my network "home" drive to the "Documents" library, however in order to do this, I had to enable Offline files.

This worked when I set it up, however it seems that the files are not syncing, as Win7 thinks I am in "offline" mode.


How can I force Win7 into "online mode" so my files can sync? I have tried going to the sync properties and the options are greyed out. I cannot locate the registry keys to re-enable them.

Has anyone else experienced this, or know how to fix it?

The computer is not attached to a domain, so there are no "group policies" being pushed.

Thanks in advance!

I don't get what you added to what and why you had to enable anything called "offline". Can you post more details about the setup and what exactly you're trying to do?

I have files on a network drive, which for whatever reason is not "indexed", so the only way I could add them to my "Documents" library was to enable offline files.

When I enabled offline files, I picked the folders I wanted to sync, and it synced them, but something happened, and I am not able to sync any longer.
