Windows 7: Document library different when attaching file from internet explorer

08 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
Document library different when attaching file from internet explorer

Hi all,

I've done some searching and haven't seen any responses to this elsewhere, so I thought I would make my own post.

I recently have moved some of my users documents to a newer server from our old server. This caused no real issues and was quite easy to manage. After the move on one particular system, I updated the document library to make sure it was pointing to the new location on the new server, made the files available offline, and let it synchronize. After the synchronization was complete, there were no issues.

However, when they try to attach a file to either an email or to a web form through Internet Explorer, the document library from the 'Attach a file...' window is still pointing to the old location. When I try to point that library to the new location, it says the folder isn't indexed, although I can have the library open in a windows explorer window and show that it is indexed and in the library.

Is there any way I can have the library updated in both Windows and Internet Explorer?

The system is currently running Windows 7 Professional 32Bit. It was running Internet Explorer 8 when the error first appeared, but I updated to Internet Explorer 9 and it is still not working correctly. This is the only system where it is acting like this, I have checked other identical systems that have had this file switch done as well.

Thank you!
