vfs_offline — Mark all files as offline
vfs objects = offline
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.
vfs_offline module marks all files
in the share as having the offline DOS attribute.
Files with the offline DOS attribute are handled differently by the Windows SMB client, as well as by Windows Explorer. In particular, Windows Explorer does not read those files for the sole purpose of drawing a thumbnail, as it normally does. This can improve user experience with some remote file systems.
