    Sync offline files over VPN

    I did some experiments with folders available offline with Windows 10 and this is what I understand:

    • An user working from home can set a folder as available offline so opening and saving a file while at home will be faster than it would be via VPN (good)
    • When the user is back in the office the local files and the network drive will be synchronized (good)
    • If the users works from home for a month, then nothing is synchronized for a month (bad)

    I was not able to get the files to synchronize via the slow VPN connection.

    This makes the offline folders useful only in the rare cases when an user is out of the office for very short periods.

    Is it possible to setup the offline folders to synchronize via VPN? Even if it is slow and it takes the whole night, it is still faster than waiting for a month.

    Network Drive and Offline Files

    Hi,

    We would like to know some additional information to better isolate the issue:

    1.) Have you tried restarting your computer before reconnecting to the network again? Restarting your PC will refresh all the services that are running on your computer.

    2.) How is your network drive being set-up? Is it a simple network drive/HomeGroup or is it an Enterprise design network drive?

    3.)How are you connected to the network? Are you using wired or wireless connection?

    If you are using or part of a HomeGroup, we suggest that you try running the HomeGroup troubleshooter.

    1. Go to Control Panel

    2. Select All control panel Items, then select Troubleshooting.

    3. On the left side of Troubleshooting page, click View all.

    4. Select/click HomeGroup.

    You can also try running Network troubleshooter using the steps below:

    1. Open Windows Settings.

    2. Select Network & Internet.

    3. Click Network troubleshooter.

    If the issue still persists after running the Network troubleshooter, you can try resetting your network by clicking
    Network reset on the same Settings page.

    If your network drive setup involves a Windows Server, we've found a similar thread with some troubleshooting steps on this

    link
    that might work on your end.

    We will wait for your response.
