Offline files/Folder Redirection and MS Access system.mdw file
Posted on 2008-06-20
I have Folder Redirection/Offline files enabled within Active Directory on my Win2K3 SP1 server - for my users My Documents, Application Data and Desktop folders. One small problem I am having is that users who have MS Access installed, receive an offline files warning message re: the Access "system.mdw" file that is typically located in C:\Docs & Sets\username\Application Data. Because Folder Redirection and Offline files are being used, the system.mdw file is being stored on the network share where the redirected App Data folder resides and the warning message is generated because access files are not permitted to be made available offline. The problem is that Access by default, creates this system file within the App Data directory. I don't care if the system.mdw file is made avaialble offline or not, I just want the warning message to stop appearing, is there any way to do this other that not disabling offline files for the app data folder?
