Windows 7: Syncing Network and Local Profiles?

02 Feb 2010   #1

Syncing Network and Local Profiles?

Firstly, I'm assuming I need to have a seperate local profile on my Windows 7 laptop and a network profile for logging on at work. Please advise if I dont.

Work are getting me a new laptop (with windows7). I'll be using it for the following two scenarios:
S1: In the office - connection via local network so I can use our shared drives etc as well as files on local machine.
S2: At home, just connecting locally via home wireless but requiring to use files stored on local machine - I have no requirement to log into office networks from home.

I need to logon to my work network to keep my profile active and I also occasionally used the share drives etc.
Most of the files I use regularly are stored locally on the machine.

Basically, other than not being able to use Outlook and access shared drives when on my local profile, I want the two profiles (network and local) to be IDENTICAL, including: Desktop, My Documents, Cookies, Settings etc. Is this possible to configure?

The network profiles are only local to the machine, they are not roaming profiles.

Does that make sense or do I need to explain further?
