The linux file server in our small office has been upgraded. This has had no effect on the XP machines but the Windows 7 machine will only show the offline files.

How do I repair the library please. Standard network connection to the other machines or the internet is not affected. PuTTY will connect and the Apache page is available.

Two options:

(going off memory here and the red bull and nyquill is making things fuzzy)

1) Uncheck Make Available Offline (should be under File)

2) Unmap the drives and remap them. Let me know if that works and if not I will load up a Windows 7 install and try and run a similar mapping to check it out.

Thank you for your reply.

I have taken the steps you suggested but I can still only see the stored offline files.
