Different strategies are used for handling concurrent updates on files and on directories. This is because, in contrast to files, there is enough semantic knowledge for directories to attempt transparent resolution of conflicts [104, 73]. For instance, directory resolution fails only if a newly created name collides with an existing name, if an object updated at the client or the server has been deleted by the other, or if directory attributes have been modified at the server and the client [104].

Cache methods can trade inexpensive network bandwidth for reducing storage consumption [114, 58]. Extensions similar to those in the case of file systems are required to support operation during disconnection. A decisive difference is that web systems are mostly used for browsing. This simplifies the management of disconnections, since cached items are not updated at the clients. In current web browsers, the default prefetching policy is fetching objects based on the user's surfing history list.

In cases of mobile agent-based models, objects may carry along active parts to be executed at the mobile client. , when a user enters a region with expensive communication prices and decides to operate disconnected, data hoarding may be performed just before the disconnection. , periodically. A critical issue in this state is how to anticipate the future needs of the mobile unit for data. One approach is to allow users to explicitly specify which data items to hoard. Another approach is to use information about the past history of data accesses to predict future needs for data.
