Correct Answer: B


Enable Background File Synchronization on Metered Networks

This document describes how to enable background file synchronization of Offline Files while using me- tered connections that have usage limits, and while roaming on another provider’s network.

Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2012 support cost-aware syn- chronization by automatically tracking roaming and bandwidth usage limits while on metered connections. By default, when the user is using a metered connection (such as a 4G mobile network) and is near or over their bandwidth limit or roaming on another provider’s network, Windows switches to Offline mode and disables background synchronization. Users can still manually initiate synchronization, and adminis- trators can override cost-aware synchronization for specific users, such as executives.
