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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi nbsp I've got a laptop user with a Windows x Pro I've defined a folder on our R file server for his use as the primary storage location on the user's machine I've mapped the network location to a drive of his work files I then went ahead and marked that folder as 'Always available offline' and made sure that the first sync was completed I've created a sync schedule through the Sync Center Over time the size grew to be around GB of small files mostly documents and presentations The problem While running the sync an error occurs access is denied on one of the inner folders It seems that once the error is encountered the entire sync Files: stopped first Offline after error sync is halted The affected Offline Files: sync stopped after first error folder does not have explicit permissions I've checked both locally and on the file server and is inheriting the rest of the NTFS permissions from the root Offline Files: sync stopped after first error folder The folder can be accessed from the file explorer of the user's machine Moreover when I enter the Properties of the folder switching to the 'Offline Files' tab and click 'Sync Now '' the sync continues as expected The question What is the expected behavior Should the sync process stop once an error is encountered If so Offline Files: sync stopped after first error what can be the cause of the 'Access Denied'

We're in a domain at work and a user have a folder on the server that he usually syncs with from his computer. The problem is that when I right click on the folder and choose "syncronize" it gives me "permission error".

I have a 2003 SBS server and several users all on Windows 7.

One of the users just got a new Sony laptop with Windows 7 Pro, his existing laptop was also Windows 7 Pro.

I am trying to make same file share available offline again and the files sync with no errors in sync center. But when the user goes offline all the files have a red X and the files are partially transparent.
All the KB's and threads I can find involved people getting access denied errors, but I'm getting no sync errors.

Any ideas?
I tried formatting the offline files database earlier and I made a dozen files available offline. No errors but again red x's when he went offline.

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.


A:Offline files / folder sync

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.

Just wondering if there are any suggestions regarding a sync problem I am having. Up till now, I have been able to do seamless sync between my laptop (Vista ultimate) and my desktop (vista home). Recently it has stopped working, except where I sync individual files.
e.g. if I create a file offline on the laptop, I get a sync error when I reconnect to the network. It says "assertion failure" in sync centre. Same happens when I select the folder and manually press sync. However, if I rightclick the file and press sync, it syncs fine. This happens even where this is the only file in the folder, which suggests that there is something different between folder permissions and file permissions. However, haven't made any changes to permissions etc. recently and all file permissions are inherited from the parent folder anyway.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

It reads as though it does:

The Windows 7 Offline Files feature allows you to keep on your computer, copies of files normally stored on the network. When you select a network file or folder to make available offline, Windows automatically creates a copy of that file or folder on your computer.
Anytime you reconnect to that network folder, Windows syncs the files with those in the network folder. You can also sync them manually at any time.

So my question is: If you put the exact same files on two network computers with Offline Files turned on, will they sync when you open a file? Or does one have to be a file server for it to work?

A:Does Offline Files sync between network computers?

Hello Greg,

In this case with 3 networked computers, the two separate network computers (ex: A & B) would only sync with the source network computer (ex: C) of the offline files, and not each other directly. They (A & B) would evently be synced though since the are both syncing with C.

I have several windows 7 computers networked on a LAN without a server - just workgroups. I do use one computer to "serve" shared folders though. I use Offline Files to keep files on a wireless laptop synchronised with the "server" and centralise all backup activities on the "server". I want to enable Background Sync and Transparent Caching for a more stable setup although these options appear to only be available to domains. Is there any way I can enable these options without setting up a full server and domain? Thanks

Hi All,

At my work a colleague has purchased 3 x ASUS Transformer Books, each of which is loaded with Windows 10 Home edition.

I need to access a file share using each of these Ultrabooks and ideally perform a sync using the offline files feature.*

Does Home edition support connecting to a Domain based file share with the ability to sync data (offline) on the said share?

If this isn't possible what are my options for syncing domain based files with a Home edition of Windows?

Kind Regards,

Hi All,

One of my users is having problems with offline files and folders.
He has alot of data he needs offline (i have increased the size available for offline files). now whenever he creates a new folder it will not sync offline. It brings the error "The system is running with the last known-good configuration"
By default all new files and folders you add into a folder that is available for offline become available, but this is no longer the case. Has anyone got any ideas?

We redirect My Documents to a network location. The W7 Documents library is made up by default of the Public Documents folder and My Documents (redirected). It seems when the folder is redirected users get an information bar indicating that some library features are unavailable due to it being on an unsupported location. Now, the solution to this seems to be enabling offline files which copies the files locally allows the folder to be indexed. I've tested this and the message goes away. What if we don't want to use offline files, primarily on desktops - how can we index this location and get full library functionality if the folder is redirected? FYI the technet article is here:

Hello everyone,

I have two folders of the same name in the same location (on an external hard-drive) and both of them have the same name. I don't know what I did but about an hour ago there was only one folder of that name. As you can see both folders are on drive G: and when I open them they are both empty but Windows is saying that one of them is 8 GB big, which is correct. All data for my project is inside but I can't get access to it and I dont want delete any of them in case I loose it.

A:Two folders, same location, identical name

Maybe one is a hard link to the other, as having two files with the very same name is not allowed. It also might be some serious disk corruption too. Try taking ownership and assign permission to yourself to at least view the whole folder, copy to a secure place, and then delete them both.

I have split my user profile onto a larger mirrored drive using a junction link. This works perfectly. However when viewing my personal folders I see multiple identical icons for favourites, links, my music etc.

When I navigate to the actual area everything appears as it should be.

If I try to delete one of these identical icons then both icons go to the recycle bin along with the files inside the relevant folder.

Please see screen shot. I could recreate my profile and point the new profile at the relevant folders but setting up all my applications again will be a bit of a nightmare that I would like to avoid if possible.

Any advice welcome. This topic does appear to exist elsewhere but with no answer.

Newbe with a question.

I am assuming it is possible to enable offline files of multiple network folders but I can't get it to work.

Running Win7 ultimate 32bit on a domain.
Server with 2 folder shares:
Share1: test1
Share1: test2

Mapped to a network drive (Share1) and was able to enable offline files.
I then mapped to (Share2) on the same server and the option Always available offline is clickable. Unfortuntely it does not do anything.

Is it just not possible to create multiple offline available folders using different mapped network drive folders from one server?

Some folders say
"Error while reconnecting Z: to \\\(Computer Name)\(Profile name) Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use"
Or on some folders I can open the folder path and see the file, but when trying to open it I am only able to open a read only version.
I have tried several times to go into the original folders on my desktop and change the sharing options, which is maybe why some folders I can open and view, and others not even open. I have followed the tutorials shown here but somehow keep running into this problem.
How do I go about setting up the files correctly?
Currently I have the homegroup set up. When I started using the laptop I set it up, then when I couldn't access the files I thought I read somewhere that sharing through a mapped network drive was an easier way to share files. I disassociated the homegroup and mapped a Z: drive, but no luck. I went back and re-associated the homegroup with the same problem. These are my personal machines, and neither are on a network administrated by someone else, meaning I am the only network administrator setting up permissions.
My desktop is running Windows 7 Ultimate, Service Pack 1. And my laptop is running Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. To go back and retrace everything I did to set up isn't possible as I have tried several times using different options. If I need to format the laptop drive that's possible as it hasn't shared correctly since I installed an SSD in it, and using it as an extension of main machine is the reason for having it. Meaning I really only need to use the shared files. No files in the native user account are important except for Outlook data files.
Be kind I'm not a pro, just a home user.

If you require total access to you're Z drive it's required that you make some adjustments to the Security tab of the drive by adding "Everyone" to the access list. It's best to do this from the Z:>Users folder for security reasons although you can also do this directly from the Z: drive.

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.

Many thanks

Hi Folks,

I use Bittorrent sync to sync my music folder across two computers. BTSync has managed to screw up, however, so now I need to sync these two folders such that no files are deleted, missing files are populated in the respective computer, and where conflicts occur (i.e. files are not identical), I'll either choose which one to keep, or just the latest version is kept.

In the past I'd probably use xxcopy to do something like this. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

A:how to sync partially sync'd folders

I use Beyond Compare to keep folders/files in sync, which is a 2-pane wonderfully powerful and wonderfully intuitive and simple to use product that can do anything you want.

You can update-to-left/right, or mirror-to-left-right, or simply compare and decide for yourself what you want to do.

You can also compare files (not just TXT files but other file types as well), with the two files presented in a side-by-side comparison so that you can decide what you want to do.

You can filter the display to show all, differences only, or equals only. You can also filter what gets compared (e.g. if you only want to compare *.FLAC, ignoring *.MP3, you can do that as well).

It's not free, but it does have a free trial. Give it a shot.

I cannot recommend it strongly enough. Been using it forever.

I have a user (my CFO) that uses the offline sync like everyone else in our company. However, when he's working on a document offline he needs to reboot before that file will sync to the server regardless of if he's online again or not. It does sync when the computer is shutting down, but not manually or automatically while he's online.

I've tried numerous ideas to try to get it to work. My next step would be to re-initialize the database and see if that fixes the problem, but I wanted to see if anyone here has any less destructive ideas before I try that.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

We have a new employee that wants to use her laptop, which is fine. It is a Dell with XP pro. At her former job she was synchronizing her offline files with their Win 2003 server.

I have set it up to work on our network and to synchronize offline files with our Win 2003 server. All this is working great, but it still attempts to synchronize with the old server.

I looked on line and did not find any advice on how to make it forget the old server. Any thoughts? It is working at the moment, but really annoying.

Since user has been migrated to Vista Enterprise, offline files have not been functioning correctly. It appears to ONLY be that way for newly created files and folders. Sync log indicates that "the files are in use by another system."

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.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Boy oh Boy do I love dealing with out of sync mailboxes.
End User e-mails out of iPhone, iPad, Office Desktop, and a Laptop.
End User's mail host is Google Business
After syncing her Google Business Account, she found that at least 1 e-mail is missing from her account.
We have her original PST file  << Was missing many e-mails from Google Business
We synced her account so all e-mails in Google Business apps are on all devices
Somehow it was found that e-mail(s) are still missing

Essentially, we need a tool to compare 2 PST files, export which mail is missing from her Business Apps, and sync the missing apps to Google Business so all mail across all devices are all the same.
So the golden question, is there a tool that will compare PST files and show duplicates/non-duplicates?

A:Identical Monitors, not identical colors

Unfortunately, there can be variations in colours even with identical models.

There are three things you can try:

Type 'color' in the search bar to open color management:

Ensure that either both the monitors are using the same .icm profile, or that neither are.

Adjust more settings on the monitors. ie the colours, brightness, contrast - make sure they are both using the same modes etc
Use the ATI control panels colour controls for the monitor.

So now when the computer trys to sync, it's trying to sync to the wrong computer name. (has the wrong path now). It use to sync to '\\PC-A\folder\'. But now the PC name is PC-B. So how do I change it to look for '\\PC-B\folder\' instead of '\\PC-A\folder\'

How can I fix this? Do I have to redo the whole process? Or is there a way to just go in and change the computer name in the path so it connects to the right location.

Hello Scsfdev,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

I take it you cannot open this folder. In 7 the programs folder is a protected area. You need admin rights to change anything there and sometimes that's not enough. Try this: Take Ownership Shortcut.

You may have to also give yourself full rights. There is a link to how to do that in the 'Tip' box at the bottom of the tutorial.

Hope this helps.

I have two laptops both run XP Pro which no longer will make folders available offline On both machines I can right click on the folder and select Make Available Offline It is not greyed out but nothing happens However if I go into the folder and select an individual file and right click and select Make Available Offline it will immediately sync that file to offline folders available Problem making the laptop I am not sure that it is a MS update issue but this problem has just started in the last week or so We also have a third computer that has not been updated with the latest MS updates which can still select a folder and have it made available offline It also may be associated with some other program but Problem making folders available offline the only items messed with in the last couple weeks are usually safe applications adobe products symantec java etc Has anyone else had any problems like this or have any suggestions on what to check Both machines used to have no problems making whole folders Problem making folders available offline and their contents available offline Thanks in advance Z nbsp

I`ve been using inCd4 by nero for quite sometime in my ibm laptop running w2k pro without any problems using an external(usb) dvdrw by nec (ND3500AG).My problem started when I bought a desktop running xp home and I started swapping my external dvdrw (nec) between the 2 system.I was not able to run inCd4 in Xp due to compatibility issues and I`ve already given up.Now in my laptop, whenever I send files and folders to inCd there is always an error which says "cannot copy files and folders an internal error occured".Just wondrin` what that error could be and just days ago I don`t have any problems with it. I will appreciate very much any suggestions or solutions about this issue.Thanks

I am unable to sync around two dozen songs to my SanDisk Sport! Windows Media Player shows a red x at about 20 - 30 of them with just the word "Error". no other information is showing. right clicking on the x and selecting "error details" does nothing. If I try those songs again, same "error" problem. all 320 songs are music I made myself all using the same ACID Music Studio program so I do not know why it just says error on several of them. Google does not like the search for it and I don't blame it, how in the world is "error" going to make any hits?? even when adding "Windows media player sync" to the search.

and for the record, that's a new low for Microsoft to give an error message that just reads "error" without giving any more information on what the problem could be.

At my job I have this one woman whose computer started acting strangely this morning.

She cannot connect to one specific network drive for more than a few minutes at a time before it boots her out and puts her in 'work offline' mode.

She can synchronize the folders to get another few minutes out of it, but is having a hard time getting any real work done because of this.

Internet and email (email is on the same server as the network drive) still work without an issue.

At first I thought this may be internet explorer's 'work offline' issue, but when none of those fixes worked, I posted here.

She is the only one in the office with this issue, so I don't think it's a problem on the server side.

Any help is appreciated,
Thank you in advance.

Could someone please explain why subfolders do not synchronize when that option is selected when making a folder available for off line use? The folders that I mention were created after I made the main folder available for off line.

Also can't discern a pattern for the indicators on synchronized folders that you see in win explorer. Is there a "key"? Sometimes yellow, blue, red...I have even seen green, I think.

Much obliged!

A:ERROR: not enough space for temporary files in specified folders when burning dvd?

How much space do you have left on your C drive?
I'm not sure of an exact figure, but for a full DVD, you should have at least 5-10 GB free space. It's best to have a second drive installed for Video editing.
If you have other partitions or another drive, you can tell Nero to cache files there. In Nero, you would change this by going to Configure, and selecting the Cache tab.

Hi everyone!

A few months ago I got MS Office 2010 Professional Plus, and have been using it more and more the past week. I prefer MS Office over Google Drive because of its wider range of text options which can help me make more professional looking documents.

I am frequently on the go, so I have my files on my laptop (Vaio S Series) and a flash drive as well. Is MS Office able to save the document on both my flash drive and computer so that they are synced? I know that when I'm working on the file from my flash drive I won't be able to sync the file with the one on my laptop, but I hate having to save new documents on my flash drive over and over again.


A:How to sync MS office documents across multiple folders?

im not aware of being able to save two copies of a file when saving an office file, however if you saved the original to your skydrive folder /subfolders that could save you the trouble of using the flash drive.

I had to enable offline folders to use libraries with network shares.

After the computer running for some hours the network access (LAN only) is dead slow.

After a reboot it is fine again for some hours.

Is there any setting to look for?

A:Slow access to shares if offline folders is enabled

Usually caused by Indexing & Search that causes that. Every time you open up Network shares, or even explorer, Windows tends to want to reindex the network shares. It gets even worse if you have a lot of files in the share.

I would try turning off Home Group and just browse to the folders on the other computer, see how that works. There are some tweaks you can do for the Network. But you have to go into the registry and do it, unless you have the Pro version of Windows.

Offline mode is usually used in an Enterprise environment, where you are on a Domain and have a Active Directory server. Also with a computer with Group Policy Management.

I would just disable Offline mode, since you are not using the computer on a Domain.

A:Offline Folders - on reconnect to network, mapped drive isn't available


I am experiencing the same problem and found an old post Problem reconnecting offline files when mapped as a drive that complains about it, too. I can usually correct the problem by navigating to the equivalent UNC path in Explorer, upon which Vista will realize that it is actually connected. I am only doing this once a day, so it is bearable. Alternatively, I found that when I use the "Work offline" button before disconnecting and the "Work online" butten after reconnecting, things are quite smooth. However in order to get that button I have to open an Explorer window and go to the mapped drive location. I think MS should give the Sync Center tray icon a "Work Offline" option.

Hi there.
I'm using outlook2010 on two computers. Both have the same IMAP Gmail account set up.
When I'm accessing outlook 2010 on my laptop, I receive new headers but these same headers won't show up in my desktop outlook 2010. Since the same account is set up as IMAP no both computers, shouldn't I see the same inbox?



A:IMAP folders doesn't sync outlook 2010

Yes, you should. I had some trouble with Outlook changing my Port numbers when I would select SSL and TLS Authentication, which is likely your issue. Be sure to check the second computers settings so they are the following:

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - requires
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993 Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587 Account Name: your full email address (including Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comEmail Address: your full Gmail email address ([email protected]) Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comPassword: your Gmail password


I think MS is still working some kinks out with the IMAP intergration so if all else fails you can switch to SMTP in the interim depending on your OS.

Am having some issues with Outlook 2010.

Program is locking up when first opened.

Icon on lower bar says " Outlook is syncing folders "

Sends fine, is getting stuck receiving 1 of 6 messages 7kb of 1.5 mb

Have gone into ISP mail portal & deleted all incoming mail. Looks to be trying to receive messages from couple days ago ?

I went off line & tried to delete a couple newer large ( 4-10 MB ) emails .

No luck deleting so when back online. Can still use the program somewhat.
Emails can be viewed , but not moved or deleted. Doing this will cause a premanent "processing" icon.

Still thinking those couple large files caused this & would like to find a way to delete them.

Other profiles in outlook work fine. Only the main default profile is freezing.
