Offline file problem - user can't see offline cache offline!

Post by xrs44 » Sat, 13 Nov 2004 16:45:24

Hello all, interesting problem, if anyone can help I'd be very much
appricative, also it might be of help to people who haven't experienced it
yet but will! :)

Running SBS 2003 and offline files for my users My Documents as SBS likes to
do, they all have laptops and so this works very nicely, until now.

Just had a phone call from a user who after syncing then shutting down his
laptop last night on the network a, has discovered after booting up this
morning that there are *no* files in his My Documents folder! not had a
chance to look at the laptop as the user is working away, and I can't see
anything obvious in the logs. It's happened once before with a different
user and was fixed at the next sync, but this is hardly ideal if the user is
away for a few days! The files are all fine server-side.

Not sure where to start looking for the solution to this one, any
suggestions would be most helpful!

Thanks all,

2. Offline files, crashed domain controller, how to recover offline files?

Hello all,

User on laptop works with My Documents folder synchronized using
Offline Files. The Domain Controller that previously worked as the
file server and My Documents repository has crashed, and the user can
no longer login to the laptop. I can login as administrator to the
local machine, but I want to save the user's offline files (which are
now stored in the WINDOWS\CSC folder with different names). Any ideas
on how I can migrate those files, with their correct names, to another
place (like a shared drive or whatever)? I just want to get the files
with the right names--any help is greatly appreciated.
