Jim Pletcher -> Disappearing appointments (4.Nov.2005 12:22:43 PM)

This is hard for me to understand, but one client using SBS2000 claims that
appointments disappear from Outlook calendars.
Although more than one users "sees" this problem, it seems to primarily
affect one user much more than others.

Any suggestions?

Hi Jim,

Do you have an antivirus like norton scanning your M: drive ? if yes this is your problem


Best regards

Eric

Nope,  No virus scans on M:, no defrag of M:, no backup of M:, using NTBackup to backup message stores.

There was a time problem between workstations and server, but that was resolved by synching the server with time-a.nist.gov and letting the workstations synch with the server.

One of the affected workststions was rife with Internet crap, - deleted partitions & rebuilt from scratch.

Yesterday the client "claims" to have lost another appointment made last week.
At this point I have no option but to believe the client, too many (otherwise trusted) users are complaining.
They dont "seem" to be losing as many appointments as before, but they still claim to be losing appointments.
Been all over the Microsoft site (and the Internet) looking for leads.  Found others losing appointments, but all seemed to be related to backup, defrag, or virus scans of Drive M: - that's not happening here!

Thanks for your input though!!

Are you sure the appointments are truly disappearing?

Here's the situation I'm currently in.  If my users have too many All Day events on their calendar, then even in Day View some of their appointments are "disappearing".  The appointment is still there, but if there are too many items above it, it gets pushed out of view.  There's no scroll bar and no apparent way to see these items, other than deleting the All Day events above them.

From what I've seen from Microsoft, this is tied directly to Screen Resolution and the only way to see the items is to increase the Screen Resolution.  I don't like this answer, because even at the highest resolution, this means there's a possibility that some of the all-day events are going to get dropped.
