I have just purchased a new laptop for a user.  I have redirected their my documents folder to \\server01\users\sam and enabled offline files.  When I change a local file and attempt to synchronise the change back to the network I get the following msg:-

Offline files (\\server01\Users on server01): Access to 'filename.txt' is denied on \\server01\users\sam

I found this thread which seems to correspond to my problem, but after following the advice on there it still doesn't want to work:-
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Microsoft_Network/Q_21724833.html

My permissions look like this:-

User Folder (top level)
Share permissions:  everybody - full control
NTFS permissions: administrators - full control
                            domain users - modify

Sam's Folder
Not shared
NTFS permissions: administrators - full control
                            username - full control
                            owner - username

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks.

Iwould recommend adding SYSTEM account to the permission list on the user folder on the server and give this Full control permissions.

Hope this helps.

Hi Karl,

Thanks for the reply.  Unfortunately this doesn't seem to have made any difference.

I eventually found a solution for this issue here:-

I uninstalled Embassy Trust Suite from the Dell Latitude 630 and the problem went away.

Nice one Dell!
