This happens when Outlook is in Cached Exchange Mode and face problems on caching files on the computer. The solution is to re-create ost file. Another common issue with permission of folder and synchronisation is often caused by a folder or calendar that has been shared with you. The permissions are set to “Reviewer Rights” and you have Outlook setup in Cached-Mode. This causes the error because it’s trying to download the object without the proper permissions.
