Windows 7: Always Available Offline [Not Available]

20 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Always Available Offline [Not Available]


Just like to start off by saying brilliant website and forum, they've helped me out a few times in the past.

However, I'm a bit stumped on the problem I have now and in need to pick someones brains as I can't find the answer anywhere;

As you may have gathered from the title, I'm attempting to make files available offline, but to no avail. I've followed both this guide and this - When I reach step 3 on the latter, I cannot see the option to make files "Always available offline" which is why I'm here, cause for the life of me I can't seem to work out how to make it available.

I have Google'd and followed each instruction people have mentioned, still to no avail.

I'm drawing a blank here and hope someone can help, thanks for reading, any input appreciated.
