    I created a document last night from home and saved it in my documents
    which points to a network folder at my office. When I got to my
    office the sync failed with the error message, "Offline files
    (address): Access to "Be His Story.doc" is denied on (address)"

    I have viewed offline files folder and see a shortcut icon to the file
    but it will not open it says this file could not be found. I have
    also searched both the network drive and c: drive for this file and I
    see the file but it is a shortcut and it says this shortcut is invalid
    do you want to delete it?

    I have to have this file today!

    Please Help

    why? Guest

    Assuming this is 1 PC (home and an internet connection to the office)
    and not 2 with 2nd PC at office?
    Okay the the shortcut properties really point to where?
    Ah but didn't you create it in your 'at home (local) my documents', it
    couldn't have magically transported to the network drive.

    That's looking for the whole filename, what about just part of it?
    Recycle bin, check.
    Use the backup / last version.

    Was the computer you were using at home actually connected to the 'network
    folder at your office' when you 'saved' the document? If not, where would
    your operating system or application have put the file?

    IN the future also save important documents on your home pc as well as
    the office pc.
