Data source error layer file- setting data source doesn't solve the problem

I am working with arcmap - concurrent user. I am currently trying to load a layer file into arcmap, but I constantly get a data source error. Setting data source by Data: Repair Data Source doesn't solve the problem. I get the files from a drive from my university via a VPN connection. I already tried to copy the files from the university drive to my computer, I thought that loading from a local drive would maybe solve this problem, but I still get the same error.
Somebody familiar with this error and knows how to solve it?
Any help would be highly appreciated, thanks!
