Outlook 2010 crashes when attaching a file from a network drive

Hi there,

Bit of a strange one, I wonder if anyone else has come across this.

We pointed a users MyDocuments folder to a personal drive U drive on the server.
The have full access to the drive so there are no permission issues.

The can open their My Document folder manually copy a file and paste into a new email or a reply to an email with no issues.

However when the press the Paper Clip (Attach) button and select a file from their My Documents folder Outlook 2010 crashes as soon as the file is selected.

Any ideas ?
