"Delayed Write Failed : Windows was unable to save all the data for the file" upon user logout
Posted on 2004-04-21
Most of the time (about 75%) when my users logout they get the following error when trying to save their profile;
"Application popup: Windows - Delayed Write Failed : Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \\vicky\UserHome\harmanc\Profile\prf41A.tmp. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere. " (this is the error from the computer system)
and sometimes there is the error that "the semaphore timeout period expired"
This is causing me no end of grief, and I can't seem to isolate it as a network problem.
