I've had one of my users say that they cant find any data in a share which is a DFS link in DFS structure.

Looking at the link it appears to be offline when I check the status.
When i look in the shared folder there is no data though there was previously data available. I dont think the data has been deleted.

Is there anyway to bring this link back online?

When I try to see the share on the server i get a message

Problem with short cut
"The drive or network connection that the shortcut "shortcut name" refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available and try again"
