    Weird File issue

    Hi,

    Anybody got any ideas about this.

    When a student for example creates a file on Monday morning and works on the files for the period of the lesson, saves the document in their My Docs folder. The next day when they open the file, it is either not there or some changes have not been saved. This is happending to a few pupils.

    We use VSC twice a day and a tape backup every evening, also we use Folder redirection in GPO to redirect all the work etc.

    Any ideas would be very helpfull. Sorry its a bit of a rushed post also.

    D

    Are they on a DFS share?
    If so then is DFS replicating correctly?
    I have seen this happen when DFS is not replicating correctly and the DFS config is not set to give the same server out each time - creates lots of confusion when people log off then log straight back in to find their new documents have disappeared.
