Hi.

We have been struggling for sometime now with what looks like the same
problem as quite a few. We are running XP SP2, on a domain with 2000
servers. 2 similar problems. 1) we have mobile workers who turn on
their machines (using My Docs off line)they then connect to the office
network using Cisco VPN. upon connection, the click on the off-line
files icon. this then syncs any documents that need to be. after no
fixed period of time, (still connected to the VPN) the offline files
icon drops out and were working on the offline files again. this is
also now happening on the local LAN. 2) we have long been having
problems where users (again home users using off-line files) log in and
all the files in the my documents folder have gone (all bar 2 defaults).
HELP. this is becoming a major pain and probably 30%-40% of our
workload.

I have looked at all the suggested posts, but the only thing we can
check is the fast user switching. as we are on a domain, this is not an
option to check. what i plan to do is put the machine back onto a local
workgroup, check the fast user switching. any help would be greatfully
recieved.
