"Always available offline" option and Offline Files tab dissapeared in folder options

Q: "Always available offline" option and Offline Files tab dissapeared in folder options

I am still having issues getting offline files to work correctly I have a notebook running Windows Pro that syncs with a options available dissapeared option in tab offline" "Always folder and Offline Files desktop also running Win Pro After a clean install due to the many issues I've had dealing with Offline Files before I just synced folder to see if it would work And it did Windows synced the folder and it was made available offline I could easily make folders available offline by simply right-clicking "Always available offline" option and Offline Files tab dissapeared in folder options on a folder and clicking the option quot Always available offline quot I was also able to successfully sync my Documents Desktop and Favorites folders using folder redirection Oddly when I tried to make a new folder available offline a few weeks later the option is gone for any other folders new or previously existing And when I right-click on a folder or file and choose Properties the "Always available offline" option and Offline Files tab dissapeared in folder options Offline Files tab no longer shows as well I have a fairly simple home network setup My notebook computer syncs with a desktop PC also running Windows Professional I call this the quot Server quot PC Nothing has changed network-wise or configuration wise on either PC I haven't messed with any network settings or played around with offline files settings since the last successful sync No new networking hardware has been added either Screenshots below screenshot See the three folders below with the green sync icon over them But notice how the quot Always available offline quot option is missing from the menu when I right-click on any folder screenshot below If I right-click on one of those quot original quot folders and go to Properties notice how the Offline Files tab is visible However I can no longer uncheck this folder from being available offline If I uncheck the quot Always available offline quot check box Apply then hit OK nothing happens And when I go back into the Properties for that folder the check box is checked again It's like it doesn't even save my settings Oh and another strange issue while I'm here The quot Media quot folder shown below doesn't actually sync It shows that it's marked to be available offline but as soon as I disconnect from the network it's not available But the other folders DO sync regularly Only the Media folder doesn't sync at all the media folder just has a few video files less than MB screenshot below Here is screen shot of me trying to make the quot ClientData quot folder available offline but the quot Always available offline quot options does not appear when I right-click on it Any ideas as to what would cause this and or how to fix Keep in mind that I disabled and re-enabled offline files increased the space reserved for offline files played with the group policy settings trying to force the folder to sync and then I reformatted the database all to no avail Thanks in advance

The offline files tab is missing from the folder options on XP on my desktop PC. (The other three tabs are present). This has not mattered in the past but I have now networked this to a laptop and want to share files and use syncronisation between the two machines. Any help would be much appreciated
 

A:Missing Offline Files tab in folder options

You need to ensure that Fast User Switching is disabled: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307853

Also, make sure you are enabling offline files on the computer that is accessing the network share, the one that does not have a copy of the files locally.

I Windows related Files Authentication Offline 7 to "Disconnected" Pro have been fighting a problem for years that I may finally have a clue about If you access a network resource turn on offline flies for any file or folder and do not save your authentication to that remote system -- Offline Files will never allow that system to prompt you for authentication ever Windows 7 Pro Offline Files "Disconnected" related to Authentication again I have a Windows Pro installation on a laptop that switches networks very often and I've Windows 7 Pro Offline Files "Disconnected" related to Authentication tried to use Offline files to manage file access while I'm off of a particular network The laptop is not joined to a domain and access remote files through UNC shares like computer share Typically what I experience is that after connecting to the network Sync Center Offline Files refuses to acknowledge the remote system is available All synced files that you've made offline can be accessed but non-synced files are inaccessible I can ping the system successfully and I can access the share from another computer confirming it is absolutely operating and available Sync Center gt Offline files shows the system as quot Disconnected quot quot Work Online quot disappears and no longer becomes an option when browsing the offline folders in question There is absolutely no way to convince sync center it can reconnect even though it can I think I discovered the underlying problem after throwing my hands up and turning off online files permanently As soon as I disabled offline files rebooted and tried to access the same network resource -- I got a username password prompt What I believe is happening is that offline files is blocking the authentication request from bubbling up to the UI It is connecting to the network resource getting denied access and deciding that resource is not available Since you can never be prompted for auth the non-synced files become unavailable indefinitely I've tested this theory by storing authentication in Control Panel gt Credential Manager So far I've been able to disconnect and reconnect to the network multiple times and offline files has been able to reconnect and detect the remote system is available Time will tell to see if this is a solid work-around My suggestion to any MSFT folks reading this post - please put in a bug report somewhere that offline files blocks authentication prompts and can create a situation where remote resources can never be accessed again

Hi,
I get the same problem as with windows 7 with offline files. A grey "X" on some user home drives (even on one desktop). I know how to fix with the formatdatabase registry entry however I would like to know the cause and is there a domian fix \
GPO script to fix. Is the registry fix deleting the cache - if so a GPO will actually delete all offline files in order to force the fix.
The solution in the windows 7 forum work for winows 8.1 not sure why this was not fix in the OS!?
Any help is much appreciated! Thanks Rick.

There is a Lanier LD117 Printer recently installed in the office, which is connected to the network, to be used by the two computers in the office (both are Windows 7 equipped). However, the printer shows "offline" on the computers when the printer
is on.
Secondly, the printer says there is a paper type/size mismatch. After changing the printer (and the computer) settings to the correct ones, the printer still says its mismatched. And the confusing thing is if you select FormFeed manually on the printer,
the documents that are waiting will print anyways, even though it says it cant and even though the computers say its offline.

How can I reset the system so the documents will print automatically upon command via the two computers?

Thanks!

Jacob

Hi all,
My daughter has a Dell 5558 laptop, and since the Anniversary Update a month ago, it is stuck at the welcome screen. It asks for the most recent password or PIN, then says that's wrong and "Your PC is offline. Sign in with the last password used on this PC." Typing in the last password or PIN does not work. I've found advice saying that plugging it into the network with Ethernet would solve it, but it doesn't. I made a USB recovery stick earlier, but ... she doesn't know where it is. So is there a workaround for this? I can't even log in to run recovery. F12 only offers the HD, not the recovery system. I'd like to roll it back, but I can't get to system restore and the previous restore points, either.
Any ideas appreciated!
Randall

A:Win10 1607 breaks Dell 5558, "Your PC is offline..."

You're going to need to find that recovery media (or alternatively download an ISO of either it from Dell or Windows 10 from Microsoft).
Once you have that ready, boot the system from it and either try a repair (when I've seen this happen, that hasn't helped) or recovery (which will).

Whenever the laptop gets out of range or I just simply turn it off, the next time it automatically finds and connects to a wireless network, it is always "Work Offline" under the Tools menu on IE7.

When I clear the checked box against this it is quite happy to connect and operate normally .... til the next time!

What am I doing wrong to be having this (minor) problem?

I just installed Office 2010 and setup Outlook. This is a home PC and not connected to an Exchange server. Under the Send/Receive tab, there is an icon indicating "Work Offline". I sent an e-mail to another G-mail account it WAS received. Outlook test messages work. But, I can NOT send an e-mail to another personal e-mail account I have on this computer. Nor can that account send to my primary account.

I want full functionality including the Work Offline icon to respond as it should. Ideas?

This is not for Mac but might give you some clues.

http://welcome.solutions.brother.co...ang=en&c=us&prod=mfc7840w_all&page=FaqEndPage

Do you have to change the Brother IP from Static to use an IP address on your LAN (Network)?

Also if you are using the same Mac with the USB settings try removing/uninstalling the Brother software completely and disconnect the USB.

Then try installing again and select Wireless connection as having both USB and Wireless Printer setup might be confusing your Mac?

It seems to go around in the same loop - the screen says "loading files" then the Startup Repair starts, I let it run but it just says "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically", the problem details are as follows:

Problem event name: StartupRepairOffline

[There is also the OS Version number and the Locale ID]

I've tried to System Restore to an earlier date, but this does not work. I've been trying to google the problem for hours, but I'm not the most computer literate person so I just don't understand how to fix the problem. I'm pulling my hair out!

Please be aware that 'slipstreaming' in both Vista and Win 7 is of very little validaity, since the result is a minimal installation which has no capability for either repair or reinstall.
Its sole validity is to create something that will boot, and *may* assist in troubleshooting an installation.
multiple languages CANNOT be supported in a slipstreamed disk - becuase the design of the disk is such that it will create ONLY an 'image' of the installed and operational parts of the OS.

If you wish to reinstall, then you MUST use legitimate MS disks, or clones thereof.
If you wish to do many other things, you will also have to use a legitimate disk.

The latest version of "Offline NT Password & Registry Editor" dates from early 2014, and the newest version of Windows mentioned is 8.1.

I wonder whether anyone has used it successfully on Windows 10 (presumably for local, non-Microsoft, accounts)?

Hi I'm sitting with a big issue at a customer and ask for your help Environment - x Windows R file servers configured in offline before disabling Files: Check files?

I did a search on this site, hoping to find someone else had this problem, but I came up empty handed.

My annoying problem is that I am using IE 6.0, and the "Work Offline, No internet connection is currently detected, blah blah blah" window keeps popping up! It will pop up even if I don't have IE 6 loaded. If I shut down all of my browsers and walk away, when I come back, there will be like 40 taskbar buttons, all the same, this annoying 'work offline' window has popped up over and over.

I have tried an IE repair, under the add/remove program. Didn't work. I am using AOL to get online, if that matters. But even if AOL is not loaded, nor any browsers, this "work offline' still pops up.

Can someone help? Thanks...

I've had to call OKI support before on this, and they're very helpful, but I'm tired of this and need a solution that doesn't leave me with a printer that won't print every time I disconnect the USB hub it's plugged in to. In my list of printers, I now have 3 or 4 OKIs listed (2 say "copy") but I have just one OKI printer.

I've tried turning the printer off, unplugging the USB and restarting my computer, but nothing is helping. I can't dedicate one if my two USB ports to this printer. I have several other things I use regularly.

Thank you so much for any help, and if all else fails, I'll call OKI again tomorrow.

Beginning today, I started my computer and a short time later tried to print a document. It did not print and the printer status shows offline at my computer, but it is working for others in the office. It turns out that all the printers on the network show offline at my computer.

Rebooting results in all documents in queue to print as well as any printed right after rebooting, but soon thereafter, they all show offline.

Also, beginning today Notepad opens when I start my computer with desktop.ini opened. It reads:

Hi,

Any news if Microsoft already have a fix on Network printers who are being forgotten by the PC whenever logged out of the network?

My workaround for this problem is to remove the stored printer and add it again which should not be the case if you do this so many times a week.

A:Why do I get a "PRINTER IS OFFLINE" message?

The fact that the printer says it's offline has nothing to do with whether or not you are online (internet) or offline. It just can't communicate with the printer. Have you tried power cycling the printer and your pc?
Assuming it's USB, have you, by chance, unplugged in and replugged in into a different usb port?

What virus(es) do you/did you have?

I have XP, and a Samsung laser printer. I made that the default printer. At first it worked. Now, it says it is "offline," and several "copies" of the printer icon show up under "printers," called Samsung (copy 1), etc. When I tell it to print a document, it goes in the queue and stays there--no printing!
Can someone tell me why copies of the printer icon proliferate, and why it won't print?

A:New PC, printer shown as "offline"

Remove all those printers copies and keep the first that doesn't have (copyX) next to it. Now you need to purge the print spooler buffer. To do this you need to click on start, then on run: Type: services.msc

scroll down for the print spooler once you find this you just need to right click on it then click on restart. That's it.

Try to print something again..

If that doesn't work then uninstall the driver. Then unplug the printer. Reboot the system. Then install the driver again. Nex connect the printer.

I have an HP 6830 all-in-one printer with a wireless connection. It constantly shows that it is offline. I cannot find any way to change that status. After trying everything I finally got it to print by stopping the print spooler and then restarting it. While that works it isn't a reliable solution since I need to do that every time I need to print anything. As an FYI, this just started about a week ago.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi,

I have several icons/files from my "User" folder showing up in the "Computer" folder (several in duplicate), PLUS numerous blank icons...



This seems to have occurred after the Common Files folder became corrupted, after I somewhat riskily decided to power off while Vista was attempting to come out of Sleep mode - it had already taken about 3 mins and I was in a hurry - bad move, I know. That delay appears to have been due to an old version of Online Armor, and has now been fixed (by an update). Chkdsk scanned and (apparently) corrected some errors, and I also ran SFC which said it had corrected some errors but had also found some that it couldn't correct. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks.

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

However machine X is now used by another user B.

Whenever user B logs off user A's offline files still keep synchronising, have deleted all the files from the offline folder I still cannot see a way of stopping user A's files and starting the new user B's files sync.

User A's files were accounting type files and are sensitive files that should not be viewed by others, however by still sync to the offline files folder they can be easily viewed.

Any thoughts as how I can stop this and re-direct the new users files to sync as I need to release this pc for general use.

Cheers.
 

A:Offline files / folder sync

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307853

You need to unmark the old users' folders for offline use, apply, reboot and make sure that the machine can see the domain and be made happy on that front, log in as the new user and then mark those new folders for offline use.

Recently a coworker was trying to CUT/PASTE files from their My Documents folder to another location. During the procedure our file server crashed and shutdown. Their My Documents folder is a re-directed and synchronized folder.

I was able to restore the users entire home drive from the previous nights backup to another location. To date the user has been working from this secondary location but wishes to have all the files moved back to their My Documents so that synchronization can occur for offline access.

I am unsure of how to go about doing this safely.

I'm thinking that I should re-initialize the users Offline Cache and Database first, delete what is in My Documents now, and then copy the restored data back to My Documents. Then, at that point in time re-enable offline files and perform a sync.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks,
Scott

Before I continue, I'd like to say that I signed up just to post about this problem and if you mention any technology terminology to me, I won't know what you're talking about.

So I have this problem with either my printer or my computer (I think it's the latter) and it's driving me crazy. I cannot freaking do my life without a printer! I have a Mac laptop, I don't know what kind (Lion?) and I don't think it matters anyway. Every time try to print something, when I open up the printer queue it says, "The printer is offline." It's not paused.
It's done this to 3 perfectly operating printers and they only not work in this house. I use printers using USB. I've also tried to print them in 3 different laptops (including mine) and it does the same thing. What's going on?

Hi Guys

here's something weird

i got a dialogue box w/ title "Click To Run"
and it prompted me:
"Updates have been successfully applied, you can go offline now."

and i was like wtf? lolz who says i wanted to go offline?

I wasn't doin anything on my laptop when this happened, apart from just installing ProShow Producer software w/c i've done numerous times already before..

using systemexplorer(tm) i was able to see the process that owns this weird window and it's the csrss.exe ... i did checks on this and that csrss.exe seems legit...

so why does a LEGIT windows file csrss.exe prompt me this message out of nowhere, and even suggesting that i can go offline already.. got me scratching my head...

here's a screen shot.. legit csrss.exe file, verified via virusTotal.com

Hi,

4. In the command window that opens, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

Report the output once it finishes.

I tried searching for "offline" in the forum and scanned through the 250 odd titles that came up but could not find reference to relocating the offline files folder. I frequently take an image of the system drive as a backup but, with an ever increasing offline folder (windows\csc), this is getting unworkable so I want to move the folder to my data drive (D:\).

I've tried using a symbolic link to a folder on the C drive (as I've successfully done with the OneDrive folder) but win10 seems to object and stops working.

Surprisingly, with google there's loads of references to doing this with previous versions of windows but I can't find anything Win10 specific. Does anybody know of a reliable way of relocating the csc folder?

HI, first of all, I found out that my home computer was infected by the lovelorn worm. Plan to clean that tonight.

Secondly, I found copies of 2 files named "folder" and "desktop" in almost all folders. The files where identical so I suspect that there is a virus that's propagating this. Is my hunch correct? Is this related to the lovelorn virus or is it another kind? What should I do?

Thanks!!!

I do a lot of offline updating from my own store. Many of the updates prepare for installation by "searching for updates to this computer". I suppose this is to examine the need for and suitability of the update. The first update searches pretty quickly, but then it's very slow - something like 5 to 10 minutes for each one. I think rebooting after each update would solve the problem, but that's not practical.

I encounter this on every Win7 machine I work on. Why do these updates take so much time scanning, and what can be done about it?

A:Offline updates spend enormous time "searching for updates on this..."

Rather than doing offline updating, why not set up a WSUS server, and point the clients at that for their updates? this has the benefit of automatic collection to the store, and controlled distribution to the clients, as well.

I have accidentally set the folder of my program file to music folder, when I wanted to change it back there wasn't a "Customize this Folder" option available. No I am very annoyed by this. Please teach me how to change it back to default.

A:"Customize folder" option missing from folder view

Yea, I've had this problem too when making folders. For seemingly no reason at all they just lose their customize tab.

If you really want it back, just make another folder named "Program Files" in another directory, then move all the files into it (Make sure you get hidden ones too) and then delete the old program files folder and move the new one into the old directory on the C drive or wherever you had it before.

Make sure the old folder is empty though and that you don't miss anything!

Hello,
I am having a peculiar problem on my Windows 7 64-bit, which I noticed this week. Within the "Videos" folder, if I create a folder called "temp", I am not able to create any sub-folder within it through the right click menu. Picture attached. Now the funny thing is, if I create a sub-folder within it (thru linux since my laptop is dual boot), I can see everything in linux (files and folders). If I go back to Windows, the sub-folder is not visible. Only files are visible.

If I change the name of the main folder from "temp" to anything else, the sub-folders are then visible and so it the menu option.

This is not happening anywhere else on the disk, only within "Videos/temp". I have other folders within "Videos" and they behave fine.

Any thoughts?

A:No "Create new folder" option for a specific folder within Videos

Interesting, I don't even get New in the first context menu drop down for any folder created under Videos. This is on Windows 10, so there is something going on there (7, 8 and 10) that Microsoft thinks is important or useful.

To correct this, right click on a blank section and select Customize This Folder...

Select the Customize tab, if not already selected. In the first drop down box under Use this folder type as a template: select Music Details and click OK.

Notice that the items available for the columns in Detail view now include Bit rate. Also notice that the toolbar now includes the Play all button, whereas previously it didn't.

Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
Remember to re-enable the protection again afterwards before connecting to the Internet.

Download ComboFix and save it to your desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have ComboFix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

Close any open browsers and make sure you are disconnected from the net. Unplug the cable if need be before running ComboFix.

WARNING: IF you have not already done so ComboFix will disconnect your machine from the Internet when it starts.
Please do not re-connect your machine back to the Internet until ComboFix has completely finished.

We have upgraded our systems to Windows From XP I have setup Indexing on our server and the employees use the Search Bar upper right on a window to search for a file they are looking for However we have over folders that we are looking though Is there a Default set/add Searching: Search options "Type:Folder" to Change way to set the Search to default type Folder Or have it search just folder names instead of showing files also If I type in quot quot it will take a minute to search everything and Searching: Change Default Search options to set/add "Type:Folder" give me files folder If I type in quot type folder quot it will take seconds and give me folder When the employees are on the phone quicker the better and having them put quot type folder quot after everything is time consuming for them I've looked around online and i'm not sure if i can do this The computers using this are running Windows Pro x Updated to Current Server is Windows Indexed folder the employees are searching in Updated to Current

You'll probably want to go with something like FileSearchEX to avoid retraining. There are a few others but this one closely matches your question.

Hi Everybody,

I'm trying to edit my hosts file, using Notepad ++

Oddly enough, the file-open function in Notepad ++ doesn't even "see" much less open/list the directory where hosts is.

windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.(no extender)

What the heck is it about that directory---I've hunted through the folder-options list without any success.

Thanks,
Paul

Hi - I've trawled all over the Web looking for an answer to this with no luck so hoping you guys can help.

When I open "Folder Options" on the "Tools" menu, then select the "View" tab, the "Advanced Settings" box is empty -

I haven't got a clue how this happened and haven't had / got any viruses (I ran a couple of scanners).

Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hello Islandsign, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You can use METHOD TWO in the tutorial below to customize and reset the folder view settings so Vista will remember your folder view settings afterwards. When you make a change, close the window. When you open that same window, it should be the same as when you last closed it.

Hello, I recently got Vista 32-bit (swedish version), and I'm having a bit of trouble with my pictures-folder.


Since I use swedish vista, I'm not sure on exactly what things are called in the english version, but anyway.

My sort-by options and the overall adjust-option of the folder (adjusting it as a picture-folder, or just a file-folder etc.) seems to be resetting, I want it to always sort my pictures by the date it was last changed, since I want to find the newer pictures easily. This seems to work fine with other folders, but not on this folder, since it keeps resetting, is it a useless "feature" because it's the picture folder? and can I change this somehow?

Please let me know if you need any more info to be able to answer the question correctly.

I do not know what to do to "Create association in Folder Options control panel" in order to open a file.

The file was created with Microsoft Works 4.5. The extension "wdb" exists in the Folder Options list, with the association of "Microsoft Works 4.5 Database." The actual name of the file is: CGS' CD&Records Collection.

"New" in Folder Options apparently refers to a new extension, not a file.

This is the first time I have been unable to open this file.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

On the laptop though many folders have this option greyed out (though not all): for instance I like this option (by date) for the recent folder (C:\Users\Martin\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent). OK on the PC, greyed out on the laptop.

When I go to the Control Panel and click on Folder Options, all of a sudden it's asking me what program to open it with. What's up with that?! I've never seen this before. I wondered if it is caused by a virus (virus protection recently installed--after the fact--hasn't found anything) or by a recent "Compress rarely used files" routine I may be regretting for other reasons . Ideas?
