Windows 7 File Issue

swlaurie used Ask the Experts™
Connecting to Windows 2012 R2 file server (via user profile path, no DFS) and I receive the following error message when browsing the home folder:
H:\ is not accessible.
The file is currently not available for use on this computer.

See attached screen shots.

Client is Windows 7.  If I browse to the administrative share on the file server, I can access the files normally.

I sometimes find that this is due to the Offline folder detection taking you offline and you haven't got that share set as available offline.

Another issue I see quite a bit is where the Machine account seems to be lost on the server, and I'm sure that there is a better way of fixing it, but I normally remove it from the domain, reboot, then add it back!

Make sure you have a local admin account you can login to though when you remove it from the domain!



Machine account appears OK.  How do I reset the Offline folder detection?
This should be automatic, and I normally find if its that a reboot fixes it!  I assume a reboot didn't?

Can you map to that share by ip address?

Has it ever worked?

Is the user in the correct permissions for that share?
