Am I not understanding this question? I thought one of the requirements is to leave the data on the computer.

    you need to remove the local copy from her pc incase it gets stolen. as you are setting up offline files you are useing the copy of the files from the server.

    hope this helps

    Guess I am still confused. The second to last sentence states: "When she disconnects, the files should remain available on her computer." That does not seem possible if: "Update the employee records on the network server and then delete the files in the HR folder."

    Read up on offline files a bit. They'll be synchronized with the server and stored in c:\windows\csc.

    they are talking about deleting her local hr folder. the one saved on her laptop/pc. when she goes offline, a copy of all the files stored on the servers hr folder will be copied to her pc (sync).

    like the post above says read up on offline files.

    and read the question a few times before you answer.

    hope this helps

    You are incorrect when you say one of the requirements is to leave the file "on the computer." You want the system to keep a cached copy of the file only, not a true local copy of the document. By using offline files you allow her to work with a cached copy of the file when she is not connected to the network (this is what is required) but when she comes back to the office all changes will be updated to the "true" copy of the document on the server. This means if the laptop is stolen or crashes this document is still on the file server, but she is still able to work with it while she is away.

    How could you implement offline files if you left a local copy of the document on her pc? It would not synchronize with the "true" copy on the file server and in fact you have not implemented offline files, because it is still local.

    To sum up:
    Move the file to the file server.
    Delete the local file.
    Implement offline files as required including encryption.

    Step 3 allows her to work with the cached copy of the file. If you skip step two, the user will just continue to use the local file.
