Hello,

My coworker asked me help her to find a file. The shortcut is
\\2222-sun\orderdb$\Cre.xlsx

Open in new window

\\2222-sun\ is a windows 2008 server, however I could not find this file on the server.
Why?

the file has either been moved or deleted. Have you tried a search for the file on the server?

Yes. But she can open it and I couldn't find it on the server.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I don't know. Is it possible the file was saved in the local machine but the shortcut unchanged?

Never heard of that before.  If you change the view options for folder and select show hidden files is that file in the location on the server just greyed out?

Open the file, then do a save as.  See where it sends you...
