  • 2. DiskPart on Win2K SP4 Extending RAID 5 data volume
    KB article 329826 describes the exact problem i have. After running Diskpart to extend a data volume, Disk Manager shows the expanded capacity, yet the properties and actual is stuck at the original size. I contacted MS and they insisted on sending me the hot fix referred to in this article, even though it is a pre-emptive measure, and I was already running SP4 when the "gremlin" occured. The hot fix would not install due to SP greater than 3 already installed Does anyone, PLEASE, have knowledge how to fix this anomoly? Thank yo Rick
  • 3. Delegating ACL administration on certain Folders and Files
    I just hired a Network Tech. and I need to give him rights to certain folders to allow him to add users to the ACL for those folders and manager their permissions.

I gave him read and change permissions on the directory bu that doesnt work....What am I forgetting????? Thanks in advance for any help!

  • 5. Corrupt File Wintrust.dll
    On start up I get a screen message to tell me that the file Sytem32\Wintrust.dll is corrupt and that I should run CHKDSK. The messge is associated with two of the Zone Alarm Firewall files zlclient.exe & vsmon.exe. When this happens I am unable to connect online. It take three or four runs of chkdsk to get things going but on restarting after a shutdown the problem is back. The problem first occurred shortly after downloading Microsoft security updates. Is there any way of repairing the corrupt file or of downloading a clean file to overwrite it ? What caused the problem in the first place ? I also now get a Windows File Protection window opening telling me that Windows will verify protected files. This runs but does no good,

This is OT, but my usual suggestion when people are having problems with
offline files is to ditch it. I prefer a third party option - an inexpensive
shareware utility called SecondCopy (www.centered.com).

Sorry I can't address the specifics of your problem, but as I don't use
offline files anymore I've never seen this.....perhaps someone else has a
more relevant answer.

2.offline files - file types that cannot be made available offline

when synchronizing data between a PC and a laptop, I 
always get errors that some files cannot be made available 
offline "Files of this type cannot be made available 

Is there anyway to make the program treat all files the 
same and copy them regardless? I am not worried about data 
integrity as these are only testing files.

3.Offline Files - Stay Offline when using VPN

My users are complaining that once they connect to VPN they are no longer 
able to access the cached copy of their redirected My Documents files.  Their 
windows XP sp2 laptops are accessing the network copy of the files and this 
causes slow transfer time when opening documents.  Is there a way to stay 
offline over VPN connections or any WAN connection?  

Thanks in advance,

4.Offline Files - Computer(s) Offline

I am having issues with files synchronization on XP PC's

I have a persistent drive mapped to a server. That mapped drive is
mapped to a new server (Q).

I have deleted the name of that server out of every instance under the
registry my only idea to solve the problem. That has made it diappear
from My Computer->Tools->Synchronize

But yet I have the offline computer symbol (and bubble)continuously
showing in the system tray.

There is very little info when syncronization goes bad.
