IE9+OWA - Save As attachments to Documents when offline RRS feed

  • Question

  • Domain laptop with Folder Redirection to have Documents directed to a server share. Offline files are enabled. When a user is off the network and attempts to Save an attachment to their Documents, it brings up the Save as box twice and both times saves the file as a "Partial Download" file type of 0kb size. This does not happen in Firefox. It also works fine in IE9 when connected to the domain and it will work when you save to the desktop location. It just has problems when the Document folder is the target destination and the laptop is not on the domain.

    I have seen similar topics that said going into IE9's Tools -> Advanced Options and unchecking "Do not save unencrypted pages to disk" fixes the issue. This does not fix this particular issue. Any thoughts?

  • Hi,


    Try to reset IE9 advanced settings for test. Add the OWA site to trusted sites.


    Furthermore, you can try to temporally remove IE9, and use IE8 to see if the same issue occurs.


    If the issue persists in both IE9 and IE8, the issue may related with the default save location document is directed to the server share:

    IE9---Tools---View downloads---Options


    Change the default download location.


    Hope that helps.

  • It works fine in IE8. It was only when some users upgrade to IE9 that this issue was reported by a few and I tested it out.

  • Same problem here. Not only with OWA, but with all downloads using IE9 when saving to folders that are marked as 'available offline'.


    Any solutions yet?
