    What the BONKERS!?

    Hey Guys

    Quite a strange issue here never happened to me before! I went on our file server and moved the entire staff share into a folder called 2012-2013 to keep things neat as there was crap everywhere. But its strange that whenever a member of staff now clicks on their shared area it still shows all the rubbish as being there even though it has the 2012-2013 folder that's also there. Though it might be a Sync issue or something but I just can't put my finger on it! :/

    Sorry if I didn't explain this issue very well it's kind of hard to without showing you!!

    Are you running DFS-R?

    You'll have two or more file servers hosting that content in your namespace (something like \\domain.name\shared) and each server will have DFS-R management tools installed. It's a possibility, but seems a remote one really as replication either works or it doesn't, you don't tend to get a bit of both. Perhaps offline file caching on the shares?

    I only have the one file server?? We have offline caching could this be the issue? I thought if I turned that off staff laptops wouldn't be able to do anything on their shared areas at home or their home drives? I could be wrong would you recommend turning this off??

    Wow, popular topic! I couldn't tell you how your offline caching works - ours is off totally on all shares as non-one here takes home a laptop that connects to the shares. If you're using the feature, don't turn it off. You may be able to force a re-sync between offline and online shares though.
