When trying to sync my Win XP offline folders, I get error message "unable to make *.* available offline on \\server\share\folder. Incorrect function.
Posted on 2004-11-20
I have been using Win XP offline folders for quite some time, because I regularly log onto three different servers at different customers' sites to work.
At some point in time, I moved the CSC folder to partition D: (using cachemov.exe) to make sure it got encrypted and backuped safely. That went without any problems.
Some time later I installed Win XP SP2, this seemed to have no effect as well.
Some two weeks later, one customer asked me to de-sync all folders on his server, as he was planning a server reorg. I was not connected at that time, so I simply right-clicked the offline copies of the folders concerned, and de-selected "make available offline".
Ever since then, I have the following error: when trying to sync *any* (on any server, not only on the one described above) my Win XP offline folders, I get error message "unable to make *.* available offline on \\server\share\folder. Incorrect function.
(*.* meaning ANY file I try to synchronise, and \\server\share\folder meaning the exact location of the file concerned)
Does any of you experts have a hint on how to proceed?
Thank you and best regards
