offline files incorrect function error

When we try to mark a large sized network folder for offline availability Offline files/CSC may give an error saying “Incorrect functioin: Unable to make available offline“.  This happens intermittently and the problem may disappear when we try to offline the share again. Microsoft confirmed that it is a bug in offline files and also released a hotfix to resolve this problem. For downloading the fix and for other details see the KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944898/en-us

Note that you also need to reinitialize the cache after installing the above fix. To know how to do this see the post How to reinitialize/delete offline files cache.
