Yes the folder does exist on the server, i also tried disable and enable of offline files and folders but the issues still persists even after re-syncing again. The security permissions for the users are on full, and weird enough also the user can save to desktop folder which is also a redirected folder.

HI @abhi

i am using office 2013, can you advise if any updates required for office 2013.

on further checking the issues, i noticed that I can only save to my documents folder but if any folder is created inside my documents then i cannot save to it. I am still confused why it is not saving and the location is accessible and all rights are provided for the user.

In order to fix a similar issue after rebuilding DFS when a server crashed, I had to copy the data out, put it in a location the user with the issue has access to and adjust permissions. Then turn off the offline files on the affected machine, rename the user folder in the rediriected folders location on the server, run gpupdate /force on the affected machine and reboot. Then manually copy the data back into the folders while logged in as the user. If you grant exclusive permissions to the user when redirecting the folders in the GPO, adjusting permissions to give an admin account access can do weird things to the permissions for subfolders and files within the redirected folders.
