Empty file name still remains on workstation after being moved within network share
Posted on 2014-10-03
A folder on a network share was moved to a different directory in the same share on the server. One user is still seeing the file name in the old folder on his computer, although it is empty except for a single empty folder inside. The original folder had many folders within it.
I have tried to delete it, but I keep receiving the an error message "This operation can only be performed when you are connected to the network." Other users with the same drive mappings do not see this same anomaly from their computers. Also, there is no security tab when you look at the properties. Interestingly, I can change the attribute to hidden, but cannot remove it. That could be a work around, but doesn't really help me to know what I'm seeing.
I also searched through the registry for a reference to it but didn't find anything. Also, When you look at the folder from the Server it does not exist there. Other users do not have the problem.
Any ideas short of recreating the profile. My user abhors the idea of recreating his profile.
Thanks in advance for your help.
