Windows explorer with offline files in windows 2008 R2


  • Hi, Folk

    I am not sure here is the right place to ask. If not i am sorry for that.

    I have a HSM product with remote storage, there are stub files in local file system folder marked with offline attribute. In Windows 2008 R2 windows explorer, if i copy a file to folder it will trigger the explorer to scan all the files in the folder and open it, it will get the offline files download. I found that there are a hotfix for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 here:,  this hotfix doesn't apply to windows 2008 R2.

    Is there similar hotfix for Windows Server 2008 R2?
