Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To synchronize offline items when you log on to or log off from a computer

  1. Open Synchronization Manager.

  2. Click Setup, and then click the Logon/Logoff tab.

  3. In When I am using this network connection, click the network connection that you want to use.

  4. In Synchronize the following checked items, select the check box for the offline items that you want to synchronize, such as a folder on a mapped network drive or an Internet Explorer offline Web page.

  5. Under Automatically synchronize the selected items, do any of the following:

    • To synchronize items when you log on to your computer, select the When I log on to my computer check box.

    • To synchronize items when you log off of your computer, select the When I log off my computer check box.

    • To request permission before synchronizing your offline items, select the Ask me before synchronizing the items check box.

Notes

  • To open Synchronization Manager from the command line, click Start, click Run, type mobsync, and then click OK.

  • To synchronize individual files, folders, or Web pages in Windows Explorer, My Computer, or Internet Explorer, select the item that you want to synchronize, and then, on the Tools menu, click Synchronize.

  • By choosing when offline items are synchronized, you can better manage the work on your computer and on the network. For example, when connected to the network by modem, synchronization time is minimized by clearing all automatic synchronization options and manually synchronizing individual files.

  • When using offline files, it is recommended that you always synchronize when you log on to your computer. This ensures that changes that were made on your computer are synchronized with changes that were made on the network while you were disconnected.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
