Syncing files available offline via VPN RRS feed

  • Question

  • did some experiments with folders available offline with Windows 10 and this is what I understand:

    - An user working from home can set a folder as available offline so opening and saving a file while at home will be faster than it would be via VPN (good)

    - When the user is back in the office the local files and the network drive will be synchronized (good)

    - If the users works from home for a month, then nothing is synchronized for a month (bad)

    I was not able to get the files to synchronize via the slow VPN connection.

    This makes the offline folders useful only in the rare cases when an user is out of the office for very short periods.

    Is it possible to setup the offline folders to synchronize via VPN? Even if it is slow and it takes the whole night, it is still faster than waiting for a month.
