English term or phrase: OFFLINE FILE & DRIVE MOUNT POINTS
Capabilities of Windows 2000
Bernabé Rico
Spanish translation:archivos sin conexión, punto de montaje de unidad
Explanation:
offline file could be "archivo fuera de línea" or "archivo sin conexión", but since WIndows 2000 terminology is involved, it would be "archivo sin conexión" it´s not necessary to add "a la red" since WIndows 2000 is an operating system that has network capabilities built in and it tries to blurr the local stuff with the networked stuff.
"drive mount points" would be better described as "puntos de montaje de unidades", since installation is related to drivers and physical stuff, and the mount point is the place where the drive can be accessed. It´s used like that on Windows 2000, NT and UNIX systems.
