Using GPO's I have setup Folder Redirection on all my user accounts for AppData, Documents, Favourites etc... I've also configured a GPO so that my desktop PCs
do not use Offline Folders and the Sync Center, whereas my laptops do automatically make the redirected folders available offline. This works well.
But... is there a way to notify users at logon and logoff to say that synchronisation was complete/successful? Windows XP used to do this automatically.
Many thanks, Matt

For your inquiry, the message showing “synchronization complete” is removed in Vista and Windows 7, this is by design.
In Windows Vista and Windows 7, to view the
status of Offline Files syncing, we can use Sync Center. After opening Sync Center (such as in Windows 7, on the system tray, click “show hidden icons”, choose the Sync Center icon), we can see the
recent sync activities and all the Offline files (Network files available offline).
For more information regarding Sync Center, please refer to the following link:
