Good Folder Sync, Does it actually Exist?

Q: Good Folder Sync, Does it actually Exist?

I have to ask I have spent the better part of a day trying to figure out what I had originally thought would be a relatively simple task I want to have one folder college class files one two computers Any time the computers are on the same network this folder is synced And when I say sync I mean any Good Exist? actually Sync, Does Folder it changes to files and or any new files on EITHER machine are sent to the other so both machines are kept with a totally complete verison of this folder Simple right NO Microsoft offline -NOPE firstly all this does is have one computer at as a server to the other not to mention that windows file sharing will only work sort of sometimes Secondly when windows saves a file offline on another machine it puts Good Folder Sync, Does it actually Exist? them into some magical temporary location that I don't know of which is not very helpful I don't want to have to go to a Good Folder Sync, Does it actually Exist? network drive to access the notes on a computer plus I can't have other applications like one note create new notebooks sections in this folder because it is an quot always offline quot special synced folder stored in some land far far away that I don't know of Windows offline is great if you want sync in one direction that is if new documents are being created on one machine and always being updated to another I'm taking notes in college I'm gonna be creating new documents on both comps all the time and I want them to be synced for both computers in both directions I'm not explaining that idea too well but I think you get the basic idea Groove -BIG NO here's a simple concept a program that provides excellent sync capability oh unless you happen to use VISTA x Shared Notebooks in Onenote -This is a twofold problem first I'd liek to be able to sync more than just onenote Second is similar to windows offline When I open a shared notebook on another computer it is stored in onenote but I don't know where it is example to clarify On both computers I have a folder called college One one comp I create a shared notebook called caculus One the otehr I open the shared notebook THis shared notebook is made available but WHERE I cannot chose to have is shared to the corresponding quot college quot folder on the other computer So again this is essentailly a oneway sync It is not purely two identical folders on two different computers where a change to that folde ron either comp with update to the other comp Is there any easy way to do what i am talking about because I have been looking for some time and still nto found a truly simple workable solution

Preferred Solution: Good Folder Sync, Does it actually Exist?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Good Folder Sync, Does it actually Exist?

I use 'foldershare' which works really well between a vista 32 (laptop) vista 64 (desktop) and XP (another desktop). Link is here https://www.foldershare.com/

I believe they were recently bought by microsoft so should be compliant. Just one thing to note - I think there is a file limit - you can share to a max of 10,000 files!

Hope this helps

I've been searching around the net, but in all honesty I've made little progress. I need some freeware synchronisation software that I can put on my USB stick to automatically overwrite old files with their newer equivalents, to use on both my home and school PC (hence why I can only put it on my USB)

I don't like to ask, but I'm really not finding anything of any use at the moment and it would save me a lot of time that I currently waste archiving and backing up instead of working!

Thanks

Sorry, not sure if this is the right place to post this question but seems as good as anywhere. My screens saver randomly picks photos from the thousands on my computer. When a particular photo comes up is there a way to have ity stop and identify where that particular photo is located? I have many photos that come up that I would like to use or forward to friends but I don't know where i can find it among all the folders I have. I am sure XP will not do it but is there a commercial screen saver that has this feature? seems like too good of an idea that someone has not done this already. Thanks for any help.

A:Too good of an idea not to exist already.

The screen saver uses one particular folder of pictures, of your choosing, to use for it's slide show. It does not pick pictures from all over your C: drive. (ex) C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\My Pictures. You can also create a folder and just put the pictures you want to be the slide show and have your screen saver use that folder instead.
If you know the name of the picture, or the date it was uploaded or taken, you can do a search for it using that criteria. Or you can just go to My Pictures and look around.

Hi Scott
I found the problem and use following method to fix it
1) Check SBS group policy
2) Check permission on CSC folders (I delete all folder under this folder and check permission on this folder)
3) Reinitialize Cache database, there are different method but i use following

I have an ipod nano and the all the playlists were deleted. And when I tried to sync my ipod a pop-up came up saying:
"songs on ipod cannot be synced because all of the playlists selected for syncing no longer exist"

I tried to recreate them but it still didnt work.

I took someones advice and they told me to make a new smart playlist and then delete it.
I did so and now my ipod will sync but the songs wont appear.

Can someone please help me!?

How do I do this in Excel

I need to find out if a folder exists:

Say C:\houses\7935 John Smith (there are many such folders - numbers are unique)

I know the four digit number and the sub folder and the drive (C:\houses\7935)

The 4 digit number is stored in a cell say A12

In normal searches I would use .C:\houses\7935*.

How do I do this from a cell in Excel?

I also need to grab the name of this folder so that, if it does exist, I can check if certain files exist within it.
Jim C:
 

A:excel - does a folder exist

Jim, there are a couple of ways to do this, one is to use the older Dir function and it's relative functions and the other is to use the newer FileSearch object. You can look up how both of these work in th VBA Editor's Help (which is different from Access's help).

I need a sync program that can sync one computer to an external hard drive and then I can work off that external hard drive on another computer and then sync it back to the original computer.
I tried Syncromagic, AJC Directory Synchronizer, and Memeo sync. And they don't work the way I need it to.

What other programs should I try?

Hey everyone.

I ran a virus scan with mcafee today and it detected thousands and thousands of virus in a folder named C/users/me/'

the folder was jus named ' and I cudnt seem to find it, but when i opened the location of one of the files it was a folder ( ' ) with jus millions of win rar files all names basically every film you can think of in the world!
mcafee detected them as all trojans. used up GBs and GBS of space.
anyone know why i cudnt see the folder in the folder it was in?
i had DISPLAY HIDDEN FILES turned on.

i probably sound confusing but let me no if ya no anyting about this.
thanx
 

A:Folder Named ( ' ) that doesnt exist

Little info so I will assume you have XP - if not, then learn to give good info.

So, is C:\Users a folder you created?

No! Then turn OFF System restore and then boot to Safe Mode and delete it.

Then reboot, defrag, and run the 15 step prelim from here:

A:Solved: Can't Delete Folder Because it Does Not Exist?

i dont know if this willl help, but i know of a program that is made to delete files when you get the error messages such as

Cannot delete file: Access is denied
There has been a sharing violation.
The source or destination file may be in use.
The file is in use by another program or user.
Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

it removes any handle that any other programs may have on a file or folder so if it is a program that is causing the error message it should work

the program is called Unlocker the website for download is HERE

I went to move the albums from their download location to the proper music folder..and it gives me a 'item not found' error... I go 'ok..wait..what the frak? I'm staring at the bloody thing!'

so..I try to delete the folder...nope..same error.

rebooted, tried again..nope..same response.

uninstalled the program, tried again...*bzzzt!*

I have never even heard of this.

Hello,

I recently suffered an SSD failure, but luckily i was able to recover the files using @active's boot disk. The issue is that the files i recovered require that their file names be long, @active saves them as short file names due to DOS limitations, and creates a batch file that i can run to return them to their previous (long) name.

The issue is i have over 500 folders, and this will take a very long time.

Is there away to run all batch files in a folder (including subfolders) or is there a way to run all batch files with a certain name? (they are all named !_RENAME.bat).
Any tips or ideas would be appreciated!

A:Run all batch files that exist within a folder?

See the /R switch in For command for command prompt

Microsoft Corporation


The way to get them all would be to put the folders all underneath one folder. Like C:\MyBatches or something.. if they are not already under one root folder. Open a command prompt in drive C: then do
cd \MyBatches
for /R %s in (*.bat) do %s

Edit: Also you can look in the .bat. If it is a simple command to change to long filenames you can do it directly. But since the bats are already there... I would sample a few and make sure there's nothing that looks dangerous like del *.* or anything suspicious.

Hey guys!

Yeah... I'm not drunk. There's this folder that's sitting on my desktop, that according to windows, doesn't exist.

I think it's the remaining folder from a crashed FTP transfer from my iPod.

How do I get rid of it?

Stuff I've tried:
1.Renaming
2.Moving
3.Regular delete
4.Change permissions

I have full administrator privileges, and I have no clue of what's going on

Thanks guys!

Might work. Be careful with it though, in the sense that you could delete something important if you're not.

So, as a college student I find myself with an assload of school work (mostly MS word docs and C++ source files) mixed on both my thumb drive and home computer and am always going back and forth between school and home computers.

So im looking for a program that can sync files between my home computer and thumb drive (would be nice if it was portable and could store it on my usb drive for use on other computers) and preferable have an archiving feature, so I can still go back and look at older versions of my files as needed (EX I have version 1 on my home comp. and ver. 2 on my usb and I dont want version 1 deleted)

Thank you

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a utility to synchronize files between my laptop and desktop machines. Specifically I would like a utility that is free, easy to use, and runs in the background keeping the files in sync.

The last few weeks I've been using a program called PowerFolder, but I'm having a lot of problems with it. Microsoft's SyncToy seems to work well, but it seems to copy files that don't really need to be copied and it doesn't run in the background.

Thanks!
Jacob

Hi,

I was trying to watch a program through my laptop on my HDMI TV using HULU. The voice to mouth-movement is not in sync. However, if I watch the same program just on my laptop, it is O.K. Is there some connection or adjustment I should be making that I am unaware of?

I have a nailed up VPN between 2 sites the remote site is connected to the main and is joined to the domain.

I have set the workstation up so that when the user logs on and off the my documents synchronises back to the Main site. since there are more and more documents in this folder its becoming very slow. when the user clicks on my documents its taking around 15 seconds to open, i have checked all the dns and ip settings and its as it was originally when it was quick, is there a way to make the folder offline without terminating the VPN link so that they can work on it and then when they log off, it syncs back to the server.

I've been using "briefcase" to sync data folders. It works well for folders up to several hundred MB's.

My problem is now I'm dealing with folders that contain 10-30GB's. Briefcase begins to scan for differences and quickly shuts down.

Any ideas on a sync program that can handle folders this size?

BTW, I don't know if it makes a difference but the main disk with data folders is basic while the slave drive to be synced is dynamic.

A:Best way to sync mp3 folder to an android phone?

Hi. Calm down! I guess you just changed from iPhone to Android phone not long ago? Once you plug in your Android, you should see a portable device folder where you can manage all the files in your Android. If this doesn't work, there are also many desktop syncing programs just like iTunes, such as iTools, Apowersoft Phone Manager, MobileGo, etc. However, personally, I would recommend you to use wireless apps like AirMore for managing Android files on web or Pushbullet for transferring files in a fast way.

Our users "my documents" folders are set up for redirection to \\ourserver\users

We have an XP based machine ( machine X ) that was used by person A, each time they logged off it synchronized as expected.

However machine X is now used by another user B.

Whenever user B logs off user A's offline files still keep synchronising, have deleted all the files from the offline folder I still cannot see a way of stopping user A's files and starting the new user B's files sync.

User A's files were accounting type files and are sensitive files that should not be viewed by others, however by still sync to the offline files folder they can be easily viewed.

Any thoughts as how I can stop this and re-direct the new users files to sync as I need to release this pc for general use.

Cheers.

You need to unmark the old users' folders for offline use, apply, reboot and make sure that the machine can see the domain and be made happy on that front, log in as the new user and then mark those new folders for offline use.

Up until now, I've synced my music folders between my stationary computer and laptop through dropbox (I have over 60GB space). But I feel that there must be a better way to do it, without syncing through the internet.
Basically what I want is to have the music files saved locally on both computers, but any change in one folder will be synced to the other, is it possible to do this in Windows 7 without any 3rd party apps?
I did try setting up a Homegroup, but I'm not sure that my computers are connected. My stationary computer doesn't read wi-fi, but is connected to a router which is connected to a wi-fi-router which my laptop is connected to, so technically they should be connected? I'm a big noob when it comes to networks, so I'm turning to you guys for help now!

Good evening all: I have a video folder that is quite large and I don't want to lose the files in it. I copied the folder to a separate drive but the drive is small(160GB) and will not allow me to copy the folder twice to it. I add more files to the original folder and when I go to coy/backup I end up having to delete the folder on the separate drive so the original folder with new files will fit. My question is: Is there a way of 'Syncing' the folders so only the new files are copied? Or should I use Windows Backup just for this folder? Thank you in advance.

A:Sync/Copy huge folder

Since video files(video captures mainly) tend to chew up drive space fast I made sure I had large storage as well as large OS drives when first putting the present case together. It won't take long to fill up a small drive when you keep adding new files however.

Even with the 1tb dirves in use here the oldest files are deleted to make room for the new after so long to avoid crowding. For keeping a growing number of files for lengthy periods of time if all are the same type you would still use one main folder possibly with a few sub folders to keep the new and old separated rather then having two root folders for the same.

To keep the oldest indefinitely then you have to start looking at increasing the overall storage capacity of the secondary storage drives internal or external in order to still be able to add new files as you go along. At some point however the files will still be more then the total storage capacity where some will simply have to go or be burned to removable media in dvd form.

What periodic scheduled backups will do is simply add the new with the old files as you go along by overwriting the existing files in the same folder with the same plus add the new in at the same time. Simply copying each new file over to the folder on the other drive will see that done.

Once all the latest files are backed up there you simply start nuking the older files from the C drive to avoid running out of space fast and seeing things like the "out of memory" error when there's not enough room for the paging file to be created. But 160gb is "tiny" when considering what you are trying to back up! Even a 500gb drive can fill rather quickly.

Hey people.

Im after trying to sync a folder from my laptop to a network share on a windows 2003 file server. Not exactly sure how to go about doing it. I would like files to sync both ways so any changes i make to the folder on my laptop get applied to the share on my file server and any changes to the share on the file server are applied to the file on my laptop.

I had a look at sync centre which i believe is 7's version of offline files. I made a test share on my file server and set it to "Always Available Offline"

Now where do i go from here? Is it just a case of setting the foder on my laptop to point towards the network share?

Any help would be great

thanks

Well this isn't exactly automatically sync but...

You can use robocopy

I uploaded the .exe here

2shared - download robocopy.exe

Just make the following .bat file

@echo off

robocopy "C:\users\tom\desktop" "F:\desktop" /mir /s

echo Backup Complete

pause


In case you're wondering the destination folders don't create themselves.. < yes, i've had people who told me the script was not working but only because they did not create the destination folder>

It will only take long the first time you copy the files then you can just update the network drive automatically by running the bat file.

Guess if you want you can set it to run at shutdown / startup that way, nothing to worry about.

It's not THE solution. But it could work

A:Sync local folder on office pc w/ local folder on Surface Pro???

I would agree that having a cloud storage would be nice should the office server go down. You do know that you don't have to sync the entire share folder and programs right? You can sync just individual files that are actually being used and changed. As far as extra storage goes, no need to tote around an external HD. Why not get a couple USB 3.0 flash drives or sdcards? And I really do mean get 2-3, just in case one should fail you have some kind of a backup. You can never rely on a single backup.

Hi everyone,

If installed on PC, Google Drive syncs the contents of the Google Drive folder to the cloud automatically.

I want a continuous backup to specific folders on my PC, say "Uni Stuff" and "Music" (different locations).

That requires GDrive to perceive the two folders as the original GDrive folder. I'm guessing it's possible.
The reason I don't want to just copy the stuff I want to backup, into the GDrive folder, is because it creates an actual copy on my physical HDD. That takes up lots of space.
Is there a way to do it?
Thanks.

Hi sysvatar and welcome to the Forum.
I have never used a roaming profile o may not be much help but your post was getting a little near to the bottom of th epage and then might get a bit lost!
Forgive me for being naive but are you sure you have the actual folders on the desktop and not just a link to them on the C drive? have you tried renaming the one with the lost contents to it's old name? If they are the actual folders did they get moved or just copied, have you checked to see if they are still on the C drive? If the contents have got deleted you would have surely got a message "Do you want to delete etc". Have you checked the recycle bit?

All other users syncing to the same server are fine.

I've disabled Indexing, but that did not take care of it.
I've also googled the heck out of this. Nothing worked.

If I go to the actual server location and sync from there, it works without issue, but not the other way. There's a similar error for every created file or folder.

Hey all,

So my outlook has been working fine until lately. Here is the problem, if I receive an email while outlook is open it won't show up in my inbox. Even if I do a manual send/receive command it won't appear. In fact it doesn't say "Syncing inbox" at the bottom. I can get it to sync if I change folders, or if I open and close outlook. I have tried changing multiple settings in Send/Receive Groups and general settings and nothing seems to fix it. Any ideas?
 

A:Outlook 2013 Folder Sync Issues

With no way of knowing what you actually tried, in what order, and if all is back to where it was, all I can really suggest is that you remove the account info from Outlook, and create a new account. Working or not, at that point, please let us know.

I recently moved to a 2TB striped raid setup, replacing a setup where i had several independent disks, many with backups of my important files. Now everything is on the raid setup and i fear that if it fails i'd lose everything, much of which goes back up to a decade.

What I'd like to do is have my 'My Documents' folder mirrored onto an external drive. In the past I'd copy stuff manually, but I have 150+Gb of stuff in there and it's time consuming having to routinely overwrite everything each time i backup, especially since very little may have changed or been added since i last did it.

If I had some sort of mirror or sync set up then it would just replace or update changes I have made to my files.

How would I go about this?
 

A:How do I set up a sync between my documents folder and a spare drive?

SyncBack gets mentioned often here.

Myself, I just use a batch file and robocopy, then run it as a scheduled task each day.
Code:
Set _Src=%Userprofile%\Documents
Set _Dest=G:\Backups\DeLorean\Documents
Robocopy "%_Src%" "%_Dest%" /R:2 /W:5 /SEC /E /XO %*
Switches:

Code:
/R Number of retry attempts
/W Time to wait between retries
/SEC Copy with security, copies Data, Attributes, Timesatamp, and Security info (ACL List)
/E Include subfolders
/XO Exclude older files
%* This lets you add switches from the command line.
Handy to specify /L to just list files and not actually copy.

Save as backup.bat for example.
Open a command prompt, navigate to the folder you saved backup.bat in, and type:
backup.bat - will copy files
backup.bat /L - will just list but not copy

Once a week add /purge ( or create a 2nd task) to delete files from the backup that no longer exist on the PC.

Hi Everyone,

Hopefully someone can help me. I want to move the OneDrive folder from the default C:\Users\UserName\OneDrive to D:\Users\UserName\OneDrive.

I go to properties, location & click on move & navigate to the new location. A few seconds later, it shows it copying files.

The problem is after I let it re-sync, check for changes, etc, the OneDrive folder in Explorer shows no files.

If I tell it to set it back to the default location (C drive), the files appears again.

Is there a fix to this?

Thanks in Advance

Hi all,

I am using mail app on windows 8.1. It was working fine in the morning. But few hours ago I noticed that it shows my drafts folder empty and the interface has also changed a bit.

I did not update anything at all. My automatic update setting is off. I have synced it a lot of times. It shows my emails from all other folders but not from drafts. And it is not like it can't do it. Until yesterday, I was being able to view the drafts seamlessly. It just happened now.

Could you please help me resolve this issue?

FreeFileSync will allow you to back up folders to a network location. There is folder monitoring component called RealTimeSync which should give you what you need(caveat: I have not used that component myself). The link is in my sig.

Well I just realized that about half of my life is stored on my hard-drive. I'm backing up with an external HD but being the paranoid I am, if the house is burnt down.. the backup doesn't help much.

Any software that automatically uploads any file that I put in a specific folder to some server? So I can access it from another computer and download the stuff back, just in case.
 

A:Any Sync software that uploads the files in a folder to an Online server?

You will hardly find a software doing that. But you can always upload it with:

Rapidshare
Hotfile

Just write the link to your files somewhere, so that you can download again when you need it.

Hi,
I've a Windows 7 contacts folder located here: C:\Users\Richard\Contacts
But it is not the same as my Live Mail address book.

My Live Mail Address book has new contacts in it.

1) How do I update the Windows 7 contacts folder?

2) And what is the point of the Windows 7 contacts folder if it doesn't stay in sync with the Live Mail address book?

Regards Richard

A:Windows 7 Contacts Folder and Live Mail Address Book Not in Sync?

The Contacts folder is left over from Window Vista and if you were to go to the trouble of "reinstating" Windows Mail (the previous mail version that came only with Vista) then it would use the Contacts folder. If you have downloaded and installed WLM (a component of Windows Live Essentials) it has its own contacts database within the <user>/appdata folder tree. You can access this database only through the WLM program (and the website contacts.live.com if you sign-in since that site mirrors your "signed-in" contacts list). If you don't sign-in then you are viewing your "not-signed-in" contacts list in WLM which is also located in the appdata folder tree. If you have placed any contacts in the old Username/Contacts folder, you can import them into WLM.

This means you and /or Administrator group have full access to this folder?

If you have x32 system you can also try UNLOCKER 1.8.7 BY CEDRICK 'NITCH' COLLOMB

Hiya and welcome

Not a Mcafee fan, but have you doublechecked that you don't have a virus? Some of the newer ones shut down Mcafee and Norton.

Try an online scan here:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

Also, to make sure that the program is working fully, take a look at this:


How do I Test My VirusScan Installation? (Eicar)

Description

After installing VirusScan, you may logically wonder, how do I know if it's working? The answer is a test virus. The EICAR Standard AntiVirus Test File is a combined effort by anti-virus vendors throughout the world to implement one standard by which customers can verify their anti-virus installations.

Solution

To test your installation, copy the following line into its own file, then save the file with the name EICAR.COM. More detailed instructions are found below.

[email protected][4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

The file size will be 68 or 70 bytes.

If VirusScan is running and configured correctly, when you try to save the file, VirusScan will detect the virus. If VirusScan is not running, start it and scan the directory that contains EICAR.COM. When your software scans this file, it will report finding the EICAR test file.

Note that this file is NOT A VIRUS. Delete the file when you have finished testing your installation to avoid alarming unsuspecting
users.

The eicar test virus is available for download from the following website:
http://www.eicar.org/download/eicar.com

Creating Eicar.com

Click on Start.
Select Run.
In the Open box type: notepad
Maximize the window.

Highlight the following on the following line of text:
[email protected][4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

Right click on the highlighted text and choose 'copy'.
Switch back to Notepad.
Right click anywhere inside of Notepad and select 'paste'.
Click the File menu and select 'save as'.
Change the 'Save as Type' to 'all files'.
Name the file eicar.com.

Skydrive or Dropbox. www.dropbox.com which is a cloud allows you to backup or sync files and folders.

Edit: Here are a list of others 12 free cloud storage options

Hi All,

I need your expert solution for below issue -

Some users are having an issue when logged into a Windows 7 PC where their off-line folder is taking them to the root where all users are listed instead of his individual "My Documents" folder. This doesn't seem to be an issue for user while using a Windows XP machine.The off-line folders are Windows group policies.

Thanks in advance,

Mahesh

Referring Erunt (ERUNT)

Does anyone have an opinion on ERUNT saving to a compressed (not encrypted) window folder. Does anyone think this is a bad idea?
(Think of case where I need to get to the ERUNT data in a PC with broken OS from live boot type CD that can read a NTFS file system that it is not damaged)

A:Erunt and save to compressed folder location - good or bad?

Sounds lie a bad idea to me.

Can you even access the compressed folder from the Recovery Console in Windows 7? Best to check that out first.

Question. Why are you compressing folders? Hard drives are really cheap now days.

I was hoping to find a good program for monitoring any and all file/folder changes that occur on my hard drive when I install/run certain programs. This would be such a great help in troubleshooting some problems I've been having. Ideally the program would have useful filter/search features to help sort out everything that gets written/modified on my HD. And maybe if it is really good, the program could even tell me changes to my system's registry.

Anyone know of a good free program that can do this for Windows XP? Thanks in advance!

I've got someone who asked me and now I'm asking you guys.

A FREE program, reputable and safe, that can be used to overwrite files and folders to securely erase them.

Tried searching the thread above (Search This Thread), but nothing came up.

A:Looking for a good, FREE file and folder shredding program

I suggest Recuva, made by the same people that made CCleaner. Does both recover files, and overwrite them. https://www.piriform.com/recuva

Why is not a good idea to store files inside c:\windows folder?

A:Why is not a good idea to store files inside c:\windows folder?

Hello Stuckfree,

Usually, it's best to keep your files in either your user folders or another drive location. This is because of permission issues that could arise since C:\Windows is a restricted system folder, and your "C:\Users\(user-name)" folder or other location isn't.

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

Hi,

Please forgive me if I post at wrong category.

We are using sync center in our environment to sync our home drive to local drive using GPO, however we notice recently sync center partnership automatic create new sync without our notice, and is not configure in any GPO. Is anyone have idea how to trace
where this sync instruction from and how to stop it?

Due to GPO, our sync center option like "Disable offline file" is grey out and unable to use. And the new sync partnership will backup to local drive folder  C:\Windows\CSC and unable to delete it. Thanks

I have a sync in my sync center for microsoft sql server 2000 that I can't get removed, i'm not real sure where it came from or how to get it to go away. When I right click on it i have options to open, explore, sync, schedule and properties. Stop sync, view conflicts and view results are grayed out. When I select open it shows the sync partnership details and has one entry where it says "To create a subscription: select this then click properties". Even if I do that the properties window shows up but has nothing that I can edit. I have attached two pics of whats going on. Any way I can get this to go away?
