The network share is on a server called alpha for which I have full control
of this folder:
I mapped the share to my laptop as drive z:
I right clicked on documents, selected location and chose z: and elected to
move all of the files.
I then turned on offline files for that folder after which it says preparing
files so they are always available offline.
I get a TON of errors (like 543 errors) saying the same thing for every
single file. "The process cannot access the file because it is being used
by another process."
When I looked at the offline files control panel applet (control panel >
Networking > Offline files) It shows the correct amount of space being used.
When I'm offline I can see all the folders and files in explorer but when I
try to open one it says the file is currently unavailable for use on this
computer. I get the same error no matter which file i try to open while
offline. They are a variety of type of documents (word 2003, excel, pdf,
tif, gif files, etc...)
