Outlook: Can’t create file : XYZ.pdf. Right-click the folder you want to create the file in, and then click properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions for the folder.

Error in Outlook 2010:

"Outlook: Can't create file : XYZ.pdf. Right-click the folder you want to create the file in, and then click properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions for the folder."

This is an annoying message. Even after fixing the users profile permissions it made no difference. This is what worked for me:

  1. Open REGEDIT.EXE and go to Edit -> Find… In the Find dialog box type “OutlookSecureTempFolder” without the quotes.
  2. You may also find the key here without searching if you know the users key:  HKEY_USERS\%USER PROFILE ID NUMBER%\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Security
  3. When you find it the key will contain the actual folder location, and will look like:
    1. C:\Documents and Settings\%USER_NAME%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK#\ (where # is a random letter or number)
  4. Copy the location of that folder.
  5. Click on Start -> Run… and paste the folder location from step #4 then click OK.
  6. Explorer will open that folder, then delete all files present.
  7. Restart Outlook and you should be able to open your attachments.

Last time I did this I found over 14k files in that location. Yikes!

QNAP NAS SSH Service Commands

I use several QNAP devices from the large 24 drive down to a personal 2 drive. I’ve found that they are pretty good and you can do a lot with them as they’re basically Linux boxes with a pretty web interface.

Here are some useful console commands for restarting specific services.

First, to restart basically everything you can issue this command:

/etc/init.d/services.sh restart

One of the most common ones is to restart smb:

/etc/init.d/smb.sh restart

Here’s a list of other common ones: (They’re all in /etc/init.d)
I believe they will all accept the restart option. They will accept start/stop options.

QMediaService.sh
Qthttpd.sh
StartMediaService.sh
bonjour.sh
crond.sh
ftp.sh
mysqld.sh
network.sh
opentftp.sh
qsyncman.sh
rsyncRR.sh
rsyncd.sh
rsyncd_srv.sh
rsyslog.sh
samba4.sh
services.sh
timemachine.sh
vpn_openvpn.sh
vpn_pptp.sh
webalizer.sh

Ruckus Wireless AP Default Info and User Guides

I’ve used several wireless AP management systems from Motorola and Ruckus. Ruckus is by far my favorite and here’s some useful info for their APs and Managers if you need to wipe them and start over.

One of the things I love about Ruckus is that their hardware warranty is essentially endless. By that I mean hardware is covered in excess of 5 years. Clearly after they have end of life’d a product you can’t get replacements but having only used their warranty twice in a few years I’m very happy with the whole process.
