  One of the old problems with Offline Vault was most apparent with laptop users and desktop users who never shutdown their machine.  The issue is that Offline Vault would only synchronise with the Enterprise Vault server once per session.  This was changed in Enterprise Vault 8, and by default Vault Cache (as it’s now known) synchronises on a timetable.  By default that’s every 24 hours.

It is possible to modify that frequency though, and here is how :

This is the registry key I added : 12000 seconds.

See the OVMDCLastSyncTime, and OVMDCNextSyncTime entries :

Look again at the OVMDCLastSyncTime, and OVMDCNextSyncTime, these were the following day :

Essentially the only tricky bits here are that you have to make sure you do all the following :

 

a) Change the registry key

b) Close and restart Outlook

c) Wait until the next sync time listed in the registry, before the new timetable will take effect (or with Outlook closed, remove those registry entries)
