Community,\n\nWe just lost our "Data" drive which had all our shares and mapped drives. I\nwas able to re-partition and restore the data back to their locations .\n\nThe challenge is, our workstations seem to have Offline Files on or\nsomething. When the click the drive letter, no files are shown.\n\nIf I disconnect the drive and try to map using \\servername\sharename i get\nan error. Even trying to go to \\servername\ to see all shares I get only one\nShare named "Users" - which is our User's drive (not restored yet)\n\nThere is no netlogon even to re-execute the login script.\n\nIf I manually disconnect the drive, and than map using the \\ip\naddress\share it works. However, printers and other resources do not.\n\nI did notice the "Offline Files" with the computer is present. I cannot\ndisable it (grey). I have reviewed the Group Policies on the server and there\ndoes not appear to be any settings for it, enabled or otherwise.\n\nThe only way I've been able to fix it thus far is by sitting at the local\nmachine, logging in as local admin and\n\n1) Turn off Offline Files\n2) Disable it for the computer in local GPO\n3) Release IP, Flush DNS, Renew IP and Register DNS\n4) Reboot the computer\n\nThis seems to sovle it.\n\nTrying to figure out what this has to do with - is it Offline Files, is a\nDNS cache issue?
