I was simply pointing out that the *default* behavior was to always cache all data in redirected folders on the local client using the tried and true 'offline files' technology, but in a different way with respect to Redirected Folders (with Windows 7, which, in case you hadn't noticed, is the subject being discussed) - it synchronizes *as changes are made*, *in the background*, not at logon/logoff.
And of course, all of my replies also 'assume' that Samba behaves the same way as Windows Server with Win 7 Clients - meaning, the default behavior is to *always* *cache* (and sync in the background) all redirected folder data on the local client.
Can anyone with *definitive* knowledge please comment on whether or not this is true (it will affect my decision on replacing our Windows Servers with Samba sometime in the next year or so)?
Also, I am curious if it is even possible to disable the local caching on the client (although as I have said, I personally cannot think of *any* reason/scenario where that would be a good idea - if you truly never want *any* data residing on the local client, use THIN clients, that is what they are for).
