Problem with SQL 2008 Filestream

I have an issue with two sites that are unable to run a SQL Express 2008 database with filestream. As soon as I attempt to bring the filestream data online it generates the following sql log:

Msg 5120, Level 16, State 106, Line 1

Unable to open the physical file "C:\ProgramFiles\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.databasename\databasename_filestreamfolder".Operating system error 259: "259(failed to retrieve text for this error.Reason: 1815)".

This issue is not happening on other sites, or on computers in those sites that do not have McAfee AV/DLP installed. As soon as the McAfee products are installed the filestream data becomes inaccessible.

The are a number of 'fixes' for the SQL error on MS Technet and I have tried them all but none work. Have any of you come across this issue or have a solution? Perhaps any exclusions that should be set up to resolve this conflict?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Please note that AV is not the cause. Disabling DLP on the client resolved the conflict. The question of why SQL filestream data cannot be brought online when DLP is active is still an open question though?

Is the problem a result of overly restirctive polices or the DLP install itself?

Have you tried removing all DLP polices (but still have DLP active) from the computer and see if the problem persists?

What operating system are you running the DLP agent on that's causing the issue with the sql server?
