This article explains how to synchronize offline items more frequently than once a day, and why you cannot download items more than three hyperlinks deep.


How do I schedule synchronization to occur more than once per day?

Set up multiple synchronization schedules, set to occur at a day frequency you like, at different start times throughout the day:

  1. Create a new synchronization schedule:
    1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Synchronize.

      NOTE: If the Items To Synchronize dialog box appears, click the appropriate option and click Setup.
    2. On the Scheduled tab, click Add to display the Scheduled Synchronization Wizard.
    3. Click Next, and select the pages that you want to have synchronized multiple times in one day.
    4. Click Next, and enter a start time, select a day frequency, make sure that the Start Date is what you want, and click Next.
    5. Give the schedule a unique name, click Next, and click Finish.
  2. Perform the same procedure for each additional time throughout the day that you want synchronization to occur. Use all the same settings except the start time and schedule name.

Why can't I synchronize items more than three hyperlinks deep?

Internet Explorer does not allow you to synchronize items that are more than three links deep, to avoid downloading exponentially increasing numbers of links.

Downloading large numbers of links causes download times to grow dramatically and consumes disk space rapidly. For instance, if you are synchronizing a page with three links, and each link has three links and so on, you are downloading huge amounts of data, which can take considerable time.
