Hiya,

Everytime I copy files from one server to another, it is coming up with

"This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer"

 I went to the local policy using GPEDIT.MSC and enabling

User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Attachment Manager \ "Do not preserve zone information in file attachments"

but this hasn't worked even after doing a gpupdate /force and recopying the files

Ok, I'd already tried all these

The Group Policy on this machine doesnt appear to work

I also have in the region of 700 files which I don't want to manually unblock!!!

Is this caused by an MS update or something?

I read about this issue elsewhere. Try adding that server to the trusted zone in IE. Is this a server to server connection? Do you have IE Enhanced security?

We do have Internet Explorer Enhanced Security and it is a server to server file copy
I've added both servers to the trusted sites list

I tried uninstalling Enhanced Security and rebooting but still have the same problem

How annoying!!!

I can get round this by putting the files on a USB drive and copying them this way.

My boss also said to try putting our domain name into the intranet sites in Internet Options so will try this and post back
