Applies to: SharePoint Workspace 2010


This article describes the Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010 issues that are fixed in the hotfix package that is dated October 30, 2012.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that you upload a file to a workspace in SharePoint Workspace 2010, and the file is broadcast to members in the workspace. If a user misses the broadcast, the user does not know that a new file has been uploaded until other users in the workspace update the previously uploaded file.
  • Assume that you enable a policy that blocks file tools on Microsoft Groove Server 2010 Manager. Then, you apply the policy on a SharePoint Workspace 2010 workspace. However, when you try to invite users to the workspace, an error occurs, and the invitation is not delivered.
  • Data that is stored in the Groovebinaryfilestore.xss file on a client computer that is running SharePoint 2010 is not deleted as expected when a workspace is deleted.
  • Assume that you use Group Policy Objects to prohibit Groove workspaces in SharePoint Workspace 2010. When you start SharePoint Workspace 2010, it unexpectedly sets a SOAP connection to ""
  • Assume that a list item contains an attachment on a SharePoint site. You delete the attachment from the list item, and then you sync a workspace with the SharePoint site. In this situation, an error occurs in the workspace.
