"Make Availible Offline" is not availble for selection in the file menu.

On my Windows 2000 SP4 machine I have a folder mapped to a drive letter
(from a XP SP1 machine). I want to make the contents of that drive
availible if the network is down. The trouble is that the "Make availible
offline" is not present for selection, either in the File menu or the Right
click context menu. In fact I cannot bring up the "Make Availible Offline"
for anything. I can open and browse the mapped drive just fine. Is there
some service that must be running for "Make Availible Offline" to operate?
I have another exact PC on the same network and everything works ok.

Thanks, Kevin C

Hi Kevin,

The Server service must be running. But since you can browse the mapped drive my
guess is that you need "To set up your computer to use Offline Files". For more
information, search Windows 2000 help for the words in double-quotes.
