Working with offline files - Can't rename folders

henriklundin asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21

I'm running XP pro machines connected to Win Server 2003 standrad DC.

When working offline with offline files on the network drives, we can't rename folders, but we can rename and delete files!!

When trying to rename a folder we get the error (translated from swedish to english): "It is not possible to rname New Folder. This can only be done when connected to the server".

Can this be fixed? I've experienced the same thing on other companies...

Thanks in advance!
