Hi guys!

I have a briefcase on my desktop and all files are pointing to \\srv2k3-srv1

All fille where move from one server to a new one:  \\srv2k3-filesrv.

How can I change my briefcase settings to point to the new server??

    Is the briefcase only on your computer? Or is this a network shortcut to the briefcase on the old server?

    Hi polycorjsp,

    All you need to do is create a new briefcase that points to the new location and then delete the old briefcase.
