Can't create offline folder

I have an ost file stored on my local drive, but I would 
like to store it on a network drive so I can see it at 
home.  However, I can't even get it to browse to create an 
ost folder on the desired drive.  What is happening.

First of all, you would not be able to access the .ost file from home as it
is specific to the SID created for your work profile.  So, moving it is moot
since you can't access it from any other machine's Outlook.

Hi all, I've been having an issue with Public Folder permissions for some time now. The folder contains contacts for all company employees (most of which aren't on the company network), and is maintained by HR.

This resulted in the ESM "Invalid window handle" error. Managed fix these by following KB 270905 (permissions nuke), and deleting and re-creating the public folder.
