Default Offline Files keep looking for old server path


Thanks so much for your help.

I had the computer home from work this weekend, so I followed the steps you
suggested. When I "right click" on the small PC monitor I don't get anything
that looks like the pathway. But when I "left click" I get a dialog box that
shows the name of the "new" server (SPAHQ2), not the old server (Filesrv).
Also, when I roll the mouse over the smalll PC monitor, it says that I am not
connected to the new server. These are all good indications. However, when
I turned off the computer (while not connected to my work server) the
computer attempted to synch off line files to both, the new server and the
old one. Both attempts failed, obviously, because I wasn't connected.

I had reason to swing by the office this evening, so I brought the computer
in, connected it to the server to see what would happen. As I sit here
typing, there is no "small PC monitor" showing on the system tray at all!

I will log off of the server and see which server (or both) that it tries to
synch files to. I will follow up with another e-mail after I do this.

Wow! Here's a new development. The last time I logged off, the same
symptoms appeared (Failure on the old synch path). This time, I selected the
"settings" button offered to me on the failed synch dialog box. It showed
the old and new synch paths. I "un-checked" the box for the old path,
selected "apply" and "ok." When I reconnected, it only looked for the new
path. Then I logged off to see if the change had "stuck" and apparently it
has. That log off and the subsequent log-on also went smoothly.

All great news, except this is exactly what I did before, under the advice
and observation of my corporate IT people. That time it didn't work. This
time it did!

So I guess, for now, don't waste any more of your time on what may no longer
be a problem. I'll post again if the issue recurs.

Many thanks, Mike
