Dear everybody.

Sometime ago, when there was only one user (administrator) on my computer, I created off-line files folder, to be synchronized with the corresponding folder on the network at work. And it worked fine. Later however, I created some other users, and for some reason these users are unable to open the off-line files, even though I can view the contents of the directories. When I tried to open documents, I get error messages like "failed to open a document" or "could not find the file". I did try to log in as administrator and check the properties of the off-line folder (using the desktop shortcut), and the relevant user does have full control. It still works of fine from the administrator account. Also, the other users have administrator privileges.
Does anybody have some good ideas how to fix this?
Cheers, Sune.

Are the files encrypted? If so, they'll only be accessible to the user that created them.
