Error: Stale NFS File Handle

Occasionally we've experienced an error when either accessing a project directory or your home drive on a Linux system that there was a file processing error (Stale NFS file handle)

This isn't frequent that this error occurs however it's a simple solution, for example if your home directory is receiving this error on a Linux server:

pkill -u <user>; umount /home/<user>; mount

This will kill all processes that are running under your account, unmount your home directory, then remount the home directory.
