Would standard server anti-virus software (Mcafee) be of any use in protecting the WSS?

  Asked By: Katharine    Date: Mar 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1115

When I try to access my workspace via the Web Folder on the server is get an
error message "The specified folder could not be found". These web folders
were working until recently and the web folder to the same workspace on my
own PC is working fine....

What might be causing this error?

Also, how can I determine if the web storage system might contain a virus?
Do I need to purchased specialised anti-virus softare. Would standard server
anti-virus software (Mcafee) be of any use in protecting the WSS?

You probably just need to recreate the web  folder again. You can either
do this using Internet Explorer or Network Neighborhood.

For the Antivirus software, there is a company called Sybari who has a
software called Antigen for SharePoint. I've implemented it here in the
office and it's a very good product.

I can't re-create the web  folder - when I try to do so it tells me that the
address is invalid...

How did you try to recreate the web  folder? Also, are you using a
NetBIOS name or an FQDN?

I tried creating the web  folder again using My Network Places - how do I
recreate it using IE?

Go to File and select Open. Type in the full URL to your workspace  and
make sure you check the box "Open as web  Folder" and click OK. If
successful, it will open up a new window as your web folder. It will
also add it to your network place in Windows Explorer.

I get this same error too. Go thru IE and then navigate to the document
library and click on open in web  folder. This usually works.

Going through IE seemed to work...
