Offline files issue on windows 10 & server 2019

Copper Contributor

Having problems with offline file. 


I have them enable on user profile so users can have their desktop anywhere. That hasn't been the issue.


The problem I been having is mapped drives keep syncing when I don't want them to. I told the server not to sync offline files from the file share  via server 2019 & via GPO. When I delete the user profile and redownload it, works fine until a day or 2 I get helpdesk calls saying Users can only see some files from Mapped drive. 


I am running out of Idea's, the system was fine till end of July. Users normally access their map drives via VPN.


If I type the address path \\servername\sharedname works fine no issue. 


Please can you advice me?

Had some ask me to check this and you can see in the cache not to sync offline
