The behavior is that if the latency of the network connection exceeds 80 milliseconds (ms), the system will transition the files to “offline mode”. The 80 ms value is configurable using a local group policy edit. Open Group policy (start -> run -> gpedit.msc) Expand “Computer Configuration” Expand “Administrative Templates” Expand “Network” Click on “Offline Files” Locate “Configure slow-link mode” This policy can either be disabled or set to a higher value for slower connections. Note – The “Configure Slow link speed” value is for Windows XP Professional.
