Managing Files, Folders, and Search Methods

Offline Files provides access to network files and folders from a local disk when the network is unavailable. This feature is particularly useful when access to information is critical, when network connections are unstable and nonpermanent, and when you are using mobile computers. This section discusses how Offline Files works and how to manage computers using Offline Files.

For specific information about using Offline Files with mobile computers, see Mobile Computing in this book.
