  1. Hi all. One time I had a mapped drive that i had files available offline. The drive died & i got rid of that older computer. I recovered the info & placed on a new server & made available offline again. The new files all work fine but every half hour or so my computer says it can't sync the old offline files cuz they can't connect to the old mapped drive (it is no longer in existence). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Disconnect from a mapped network drive
    1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
    2. Right-click the icon for the mapped drive.
    3. Click Disconnect.

    That's the problem. The mapped drive is gone. It doesn't show up as a mapped drive but the "online files" thing trys to sync with it even though it's not there anymore. Thanks
