When configuring a Folder Redirection policy, an Offline Partnership will be automatically created for each redirected folder.
Through configuration of “Do not automatically make Redirected Folders available Offline“, this automatism can be disabled. See http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/#293
The admin can configure paths in a group policy that will be made available offline by the client. See http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/#2056
By default the user can decide what paths he/she wants to make offline available.
This can and should be disabled by the Policy “Remove Make Available Offline Command” in order to not get unforeseen partnerships e.g. on group drives. See: http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/#2072
For each CIFS share these settings are available:
“Only the files and programs that users specify are available offline” (basically: The Client can cache if it wants to) which is the default in Windows,
“No files and programs from the shared folder are available offline” (basically: No caching allowed here), and “All files and programs that users open from the shared folder are automatically available offline” (basically: The Client has to cache).
When the Client access a share that is configured to “The Client has to cache” the Client will create a sync partnership and will start to sync the files that have been opened to the client.
In that Regards the settings on the respective shares have to be checked / corrected.
Per default the target of .Ink Shortcuts will be made offline available if the .Ink file itself is made offline available.
A user could therefore unintentional create an Offline partnership against a group share if this target is on a share that isn’t yet offline available. This option is by default enabled to make sure that users have the expected files available when working with shortcuts. The drawback is that slow link policies will also apply to this new share and data that isn’t cached will not be available any more when the share transitions to slow connection.
This can be controlled by the LinkTargetCaching Registry Key:
