Windows roaming profiles synchronization

When enabled, the selected file and folder paths will be downloaded at user logon and replicated during logoff. You may also specify exceptions within these paths in the 'Windows roaming profiles synchronization' policy. Some usage scenarios require specific files and folders to be managed with traditional Windows Roaming Profile functionality. These items will be downloaded on user login but not synchronized with the repository until user logoff. All folder paths should be relative to the root of the user's local profile.
