Reminder balloon frequency

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files


Determines how often reminder balloon updates appear.

This policy also removes the Display reminder balloon every … minutes option on the Offline Files tab. This prevents users from trying to change the option while a policy controls it.

Reminder balloons appear when the user's connection to a network file is lost or reconnected and are updated periodically. By default, the first reminder for an event is displayed for 30 seconds. Then, updates appear every 60 minutes and are displayed for 15 seconds. You can use this policy to change the update interval.

This policy appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. If both policies are configured, the setting in Computer Configuration takes precedence over the setting in User Configuration.

Tip-icon Tip

To set reminder balloon frequency without establishing a policy, in Windows Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the Offline Files tab. This policy corresponds to the Display reminder balloon every … minutes option.
