    Yes, it's another Offline Files problem. (Just as well Microsoft made
    it so seamless and easy).

    I have just started using Offline Files to sync my Vista Business
    laptop to a Win2k3 server on our company LAN (domain). While everything
    appears to work (no sync errors), when I go offline the only files
    available are Office 2003 documents (*.doc, *.xls, etc). Other files
    such as *.docx, *.xlsx, *.pdf, *.xps, *.zip are NOT available.

    Properties on the 'missing' files show, in the Offline Files tab, "This
    file is online" but the Always available offline box is ticked and
    greyed. The Details tab shows Offline availability as "Not available".
    A *.doc file shows the same Offline Files tab, but an Offline
    availbility of "Always available".

    This is not a caching issue (I have 40 GB of cache available and only
    900MB in use), and I have enabled OpLocks via the registry.

    Any ideas?

    Whoops! My bad :eek:. I had set up the Oplocks on the laptop, not the
    server. All is good now!
