Hey everyone, I've been struggling with this for some time now trying to configure offline files to cache a shared folder on my Win7 x64 machine from the network. Usual permissions work fine, read/write etc. to all the shared resources. This particular share is a DFS share so I thought that had something to do with it but I can't even get it to run with a basic share from a single server. Always the same issue; sync fails due to access denied errors.
I've already reviewed this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/275461
and confirmed that the Authenticated Users group (also tried with Everyone) has atleast read permissions on the folders; they actually have read, write, modify.
My only clue to a possible problem is with the permissions for the Creater Owner group; at the root of the share the only permission is Spercial Permissions. If I try to set additional permissions and hit Apply it accepts it for a moment, appears to apply that change to child folders, then completes with the permissions' check boxes cleared again. Going into Advanced shows the permission entry correctly but it does not show on the main folder properties window on the Security tab.
I'd love to get this sorted out as I'd like to make use of this feature with more of my users. Thanks in advance!
P.S. the network environment is a mix of XP, Vista, Win7 machines, server 2003 x86, 2003 R2 x86, 2008 R2 x64, all standard edition. We are in an active directory environment. I am currently working on a Win7 Pro x64 machine.
