Work Folders - Error code: (0x8e5e0408) Unable to read from or write to the database. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Our work folders have stopped syncing today and the event I'm getting on the server is:

    Event ID 3005

    Error code: (0x8e5e0408) Unable to read from or write to the database.

    As far as I'm aware nothing has changed, the error on the client is:

    There was a problem syncing because the server is currently busy. Sync will try later. (0x80c80003).

    I've restarted the server, renamed metadata on the client:



    Any ideas??

  • Great to hear the issue is resolved!

    If you're interested in determining what caused the database corruption, I would recommend reviewing the system event log to see if any storage or file system related errors were logged.
