On a Win7 Pro desktop client accessing data on a Server 2003 shared folder I, as an experiment, enables offline files. I subsequently disabled offline files.
Now I cannot access some of the subfolders. "Access denied". I tried on another workstation but no joy. It seems to have locked up some subfolders at the server level.
This is the case even on the Server when logged in as Administrator.
I tried changing permissions, sharing, etc but am told that I can take ownership but that dosn't help.
Any ideas?

Enable offline files again, move files to a new location first, and then disable offline files.

I did the simple thing - restored from backup to new location.

Points are cheap and I did offer a valid solution, even if you chose another method.

You did indeed offer a solution but I did not validate that it worked. This causes me a problem in awarding points.
If this is important to you I will reconsider but it would be on the basis of "solution accepted but not tried".

The points are our only reward for helping, but much more importantly it allows the question to be marked as being solved and allows others to research it by searching for keywords. The more information we make available to users searching for an answer, the easier it is to support multiple users with the same issue in the future.

The system here - which I am new to, by the way - is that if we earn a few thousand points a month we get free access to the system to ask questions of our own. You may easily qualify as well. I am at about ten times the required number of points each month so it is not critical but it does help the system go and gives the experts the incentive to help.

A fair point. If we are not incentivised to help each other our collective geese may well be cooked.
Points to you sir/madam/ms!
