SharePoint 2007 Local Drafts Folder on Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi! We are currently supporting an application using SharePoint 2007 to be accessed by Windows 8 workstations. The option to use the local drafts folder when checking out documents is not appearing for Windows 8 users. Is it possible to make this option available to Windows 8 users using SP 2007? Any ideas on how to accomplish this? Thanks in advance!

  • Hi _teffy_,

    as the basic settings from the Sharepoint 2007 environment, the local drafts should be under MyDocuments folder, as SharePoint Drafts. this folder is hidden, perhaps you may try to show hidden files.

    another point that may help you, draft files are created only if the documents are in checked-out state.
