      Hi there,

      I'm evaluating Work Folders on Win2012R2, and so far, my only available client polling interval has been 10 minutes, which in my opinion is very high. I've been searching everywhere, and in this very video it's mentioned "default 10 minutes, but you can change that".
      Only lead I found is a registry key which doesn't do anything neither on Win10 or Win7, even after rebooting.

      How do we change the client polling frequency on work folders??

      Best regards,

      Adrien Restaut
