    Offline Files Synchronisation stuffed!

    I have a laptop that is not synchronising some of its offline files. The message received is:
    Offline files (<sharename>): Unable to merge offline changes on <sharename>. The parameter is incorrect.
    As you can see, a nice helpful error message!

    I have checked filespace and event logs to no avail. DNS seems OK too

    Everything else is working and 2 other offline file shares sync OK too.

    Please help :?

    Thanks for that plexer... but it didn't work (at least not on its own)

    I dumped all the files off onto a USB disk and used delprof to get rid of the cached profile. I also ran UPHClean and once again cleared out the offline files cache.

    After several reboots it all magically started working again. Yay!
