Offline File Sync Issues

Q: Offline File Sync Issues

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.

3) Reinitialize Cache database, there are different method but i use following
And finally restart PC

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.

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,

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.

Many thanks

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

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.

The only thing I can think of is that this person was using an MS account and had Synced his Settings including File Associations, so that when he did a Fresh Install of Windows 8, and logged in with the MS account, it ruined his File Association. We've tried everything to set the association to default, but maybe the OS is resetting it to what it was when it was Synced.

Anyone concur? Because I never thought File Associations were being synced, if this is the case it would explain a few unsolvable problems that have cropped up lately.

Hello all,
So my company uses OneNote for many things. We have a user that has it one his desktop computer and his iPad. I'm not sure how long it hasn't been working correctly for him but he says that it's not syncing at all for him anymore. I took a look at it to see if I could figure it out. His desktop seems fine, however, his iPad reveals a message on the top in a yellow bar underneath the toolbars: "Merge Conflict - We couldn't merge some changes. To review conflicts, use OneNote on your computer or OneNote online."
I had him sign out of OneNote on his desktop and on his iPad and log back in (both, to ensure he is using the same account for both, and to see if that fixes the issue). It didn't work.
He is using Office 2016. If you need more information, let me know.

A:Account sync issues

How many systems have you linked to your account, and how many of those are giving you this problem? I originally had three PCs connected to my account, and I've never had any problems at all. Are you starting with a Local account and then adding the MS account? What will happen is, if you add an MS account to a new system, your entire network of computers will take on the characteristics of the newest system.

I found this out, after I installed onto my 3rd PC and I wanted a different Desktop Theme. I went back to my other 8 systems, and THEY were all using that theme.

So, on all computers I share everything except for the theme. So if you set up to a new PC, you whole network of PCs will look exactly like the very last one you installed it on, unless you turn off sync for the existing PCs which is what I had to do until I had all three set up how I wanted.

p.s. i am using nero specifically because i need to create a menu at the start of the disc, so using winavi for instance would not be a viable alternative

I can't get my iPhone to properly sync with iTunes under Windows 7 RC 7127.

The iPhone is recognized by the system and its recognized by iTunes, but when I click on sync it starts with iPhone backup first and it gets about 3/4 of the way and just sits there. I can then cancel the sync on the iPhone and try again and get the same problem. So because it never backs up, it never syncs.

I had similar issues with Windows 7 RC 7100 and after I restarted the computer it worked. But with 7127 I can't get it to work at all.

Anyone else have any issues?

I googled around and this problem seems to be happening alot, but with little variations, I downloaded the virtual CD that was suppose to come with it and as far as I can tell its junk as well, apparantly, a mp3 player that came out 2 years ago uses win98 material.

Anyway, any and all help is welcomed and I thanks in advance, theres a free dinner in it for me if I can get it working! lol

I don't mean to SPAM this board with the same issue that othyers have previously reported and discussed but this iPod sync issue doesn't seem to ever get solved in any of the threads that I have read I've seen this problem reported hundreds of times and almost always the symptoms are reported slightly differently I think the with Sync iPod Touch... issues reason is that the storage device that the sync software is trying to access is not actually the iPod and the error the user gets is based on what kind of device they have installed that is quot in the way quot I have this problem when I connect to an external WD My Book e-Sata and it has Sync issues with iPod Touch... an assigned drive letter D I disconnect the external drive and the iPod instantly syncs successfully I aslo have the issue since installing my USB-connected HP All-in-One and it used drive letter D for it's internal card reader In either case I can get the iPod to connect and successfully sync just by disconnecting the conflicting device If I have either one of them on then the sync process just hangs or sometimes gives me a device-related error The iTunes log file specifically says that it is attempting to access an invalid un-recognized device I tried changing the drive letter assignment of the external drive and that worked When I connected the iPod Touch it immediately brought up iTunes and synced However if I change the drive letter assignment of the printer's card reader -- the only DLA associated with the printer that I can find -- it does not solve the whole problem The printer then begins to give me a printer scanner error There is no issue between the external drive and the all-in-one printer if the Apple software is not installed It's pretty clear to me that the iPod iTunes installation will assign a device id that is already being used It's also clear that when other devices are installed after the iPod they do not detect the drive assignment already in use by the iPod I just don't know how to get that last little bit of absolute confirmation The iPod Touch by design does not show up on the drive list when connected like the older iPods did and when I look in Device Manager Sync issues with iPod Touch... it just shows it as a portable device without a DLA What I need to be able to do is to confirm the device access assignments for all of the installed devices Does anyone know how I can do that

A:Sync issues with iPod Touch...

Is there anyone here who has an iPod Touch and an All-in-One, preferrably an HP All-in-One, printer working successfully together on a desktop machine of any type and Windows OS?

I would love to hear from you if you do.

I keep plugging away. Yesterday I started with a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit build with just the HP 6500 All-in-One and the printer and all of its functions were working perfectly. I plugged in a Sony Video Cam via a 1394 connection and it found and loaded the driver and popped up the dialog to capture the video. The popup occurred just before another popup informed me that the HP 6500 had gone offline. I then turned the camera off and the printer came back on line. I removed the vid cam driver and left the camera off.

Then I plugged in the iPod, after having installed the newest 64 bit version of iTunes, and it detected the device but wouldn't complete the driver installation. I powered down the HP 6500 and the iPod installation completed.

I then turned the printer on and it appeared to work but the iPod wouldn't complete the sync process unless I turned the printer off.

Then I changed the drive letter of the HP all-in-one from "E:" to "G:" and rebooted and it appeared that everything was working. I brought the scanner up but didn't actually scan anything but, still, no disconnect messages. Finally, success I thought.

Today my daughter tried to send a fax from the computer. It started the scan, stopped after only partially scanning and said that the printer was disconnected.

She then rebooted and tried to scan a photo and it did essentailly the same thing -- a partial scan, froze, and then reported the printer offline.

Hi I have a strange thing happening I am producing some Video Sync Issues Audio clips which are CGI that are all put together in Premiere Pro After Effects and Encore I have a Audio Video Sync Issues problem that when I preview in premier or encore there is a massive out of synch issue with the audio and video This problem occurs also when I view any finished avi files using Window media player The problem is not there if I view using quicktime The bizarre thing in WMP is that if I just tweak the brightness slider then the video catches up and everything is ok The main issue is when I am editing the clips and previewing them in prem and encore there is no slider for me to tweak to see if I have my timings correct etc Maybe I am wrong but it would seem the problem is shared between the adobe stuff and WMP Is there any codec issues maybe as it seems strange that the clips work fine in QT I look forward to your advice Steve nbsp

Hi All

We have recently re-loaded windows at my work and ever since i have been unable to "sync" emails to my iPhone or iPad through exchange mail. This problem is only occuring on my devices when paired with my account. My account will work on new devices and other peoples accounts will work on my 2 devices.

Under my account in the exchange server we have removed both my devices, yet both devices are still appearing when I open my OWA account and they cannot be removed. Even pressing wipe device in OWA will not allow me to remove them. We have tried removing other peoples devices from their OWA and it works as expected.

We are at a loss. ANy ideas?

A:Exchange Server - OWA sync issues

What is Windows going on to? Server? Computer? What version of Office are you using on the main computer?

I get work emails on my iPhone and my work computer and via owa from home on another computer, and never had to "sync" any of those devices to get the same email on all three, why did they have to be Synced?

I am curious as to why this had to be done in the first place, also i have never seen any device showing in OWA only folders which i created and added via Outlook

Sorry I have not answered your question but your question has made me curious

Have a weird situation develop over the last few days.
When using YouTube or TVCatchup the sound is consistently early with reference to the picture. This started off as an occasional thing but is now becoming "the norm".
I can sometimes get the right sync but this entails rebooting the PC. I haven't installed any new software on the machine recently apart from the last round of Microsoft Updates and the Chrome update. Just to make sure it was nothing to do with the Chrome update I uninstalled Chrome completely using Revo Unistaller and re-installed with no change to the problem.
Just for the record I'm running Windows 7 32bit Ultimate on a Dell Dimension E520 with a 3month old nvidea Geforce GT430 graphics card. I've even re-installed the nVidea driver.

I have windows xp, professional, 2002, sp3
and 2007 outlook.

When I try to open outlook, it proceeds to close and I get the following error:

"The Add-in "WMCOutlookAddIn.dll" (C:\Program Files\LG Outlook Sync\WMCOutlookAddIn.dll) cannot be loaded and has been disabled by Outlook. Please contact the Add-in manufacturer for an update. If no update is availabel, please uninstall the Add-in."

I uninstalled the LG Outlook Sync, so I cannot follow the path to remove the dll file. I tried opening Outlook in safe to disable the Add-in with this:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE" /safe

It starts but then I still get the error that shuts down the program.

I hope this is detailed enough. thanks!

Hello Arfer,

Before doing anything you should try watching youtube on Internet Explorer or another browser like Mozilla Firefox. If the problem is still there then try reinstalling the sound driver. Check your sound driver info and try updating to the latest driver.

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?

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.

A:4890 1GB screen tear issues? or sync?

No, you were right about the screen tearing being a vsync issue. Check your 3D settings in the Catalyst suite and try setting it to "Always On"

However, the settings in CCC don't always over-ride game settings.... it's worth trying anyway

Over the course of the last 2 or so weeks it seems most if not all of our users have been affected by their email stopping syncing on their phones. On the phone it asks them ?fix? the problem and directs them to the login page to re-enter the password, if they enter their current password it seems to fix the problem but the email doesn?t sync and the ?fix? box appears again. Looking to resolve the issue I noticed that there were duplicate work email accounts and also sometimes duplicated Outlook & Live accounts under the ?accounts used by other apps? section.
If I removed the duplicate work account and re-entered the password that resolved the problem but this wasn?t always the case, sometimes the account had to be removed fully and added again.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I currently have a network setup at home and having been trying to get the file synchronization feature to work (so that I can have the files available offline on my laptop and update the data when I connect with the home computer). My problem is in the inability to make the files/folders unavailable offline.

When in My Computer/Tools/Folder Options menu I don't have the Offline files tab. I have gone into the User Accounts and disabled the Fast User Switch feature (which should have resolved the problem) but I am still unable to get the Offline files tab.

Your help is very much appreciated.

Additionally, the Offline Files feature isn't available in Windows XP Home, on Pro. Which version do you have?

I have 2 computers on a peer-to-peer network that use offline folders. I had to change the network-id on both computers and I had to change the name of the computer that the files are sync'd to.
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.

There are allot of files involved. I would hate to have to set it up all over again as it would be a big and long process.
Thanks for any help!

Have you been using this file from your server for a while before this problem occured...
What happened since the last time you used this file, any updates etc? Are you the administrator for your server?

I would like to setup offline files support within my network
for all laptop users within a certain container. I would need help
and advice from any body that has done this. Which is the best method to use and how long would synchronization take for a file about 1.4g. Network infrastructure is on a native windows 2000 AD environment

I searched to see if there were any other references to this before posting, I didn't find any.

I have a network of 100 laptops at my school. Vista automatically syncs the user's docs, since they are mapped to the server through Active Directory.

The problem, is that if 5 people log into a computer, it syncs ALL 5 user's docs every time someone uses that computer.
I was told that Vista solved that problem from XP.

Is this a GP problem? Always Available Offline is checked on their home folders, and it is greyed out so I can't uncheck it....

so I downloaded a video in .avi format 2 years ago, at the time it was fine. But yesterday I opened the file the audio is out of sync. I went back to the original website and downloaded the file again, somehow the problem is still there. I suspect it was a codec problem, but I know for a fact that I used the same codec pack to watch the video. Is there any other explanations?

Not exactly, you will need to setup a scheduled task that sync's these using a syncing program.

I am using Devcpp. I am trying to compile a file from there, and I cannot. The problem is I added some new functions to a class in my library that I created. It doesn't find the new functions, because for some reason it is not using the file I modified. This class is split up into an .hpp file and a .cpp file. I was able to add the functions to the .cpp file, because it would show me that file when I clicked on the error, and I opened up the file I added it to, and copied and pasted into this file, but I can't get to the .hpp file, becuase I don't know where it is, and so it gives me the error. I can compile fine from the command line.

A:Solved: Devcpp file out of sync

I found where that file is, and I have no errors, but now it will tell me it's skipping incompatible libraries. It will build the program, but the program will say it's not a valid win32 application. I checked and it's generating 32 bit code. I also reinstalled the program, but it is still giving me the errors.

I'm trying to find a good sync program for XP to make scheduled back-ups from my computer to my external HDD.

I'm on a pretty tight budget (under $100), so I'd really appreciate it if it was free (unless if it's worth the money with no free alternative).

If the program can export data from Outlook and/or Firefox or other programs before backing up, that would be great.

Some time ago, Avast started to show the following message after every single scan (Win7 64 bit):
"Some files could not be scanned"
In the "Warnings" section, it shows this:
"C:\Windows\winstart.bat                  Error: File is offline - it is currently not available.(42006)"
When I look at winstart.bat, I see that it was modified recently. The file size is 1KB, but when I edit this file with notepad, it seems to be empty.
Is my computer infected? I read on different sites that winstart.bat could be related to some spywares.
Thanks in advance.

A:Avast: C:\Windows\winstart.bat - Error: File is offline

The error message you received is common among avast! users. When doing a Google Search for Avast C:\Windows\winstart.bat file is offline, it appears that avast is the only security vendor providing that message and has been doing so for several years.Winstart.bat is a batch File (text file) which contains commands that can be used to run other processes or tasks when you execute it and is usually located in the C:\Windows folder. Winstart.bat was used on older Windows Operating Systems like Windows 95, 98 and ME and was executed every time Windows starts just like AUTOEXEC.BAT as described here. Winstart.bat was also used to load memory-resident utilities in Windows applications in order to run DOS applications under Microsoft Windows version 3.00 as described in Microsoft Article ID: 69186 but in could be misused for malicious purposes.This file can be opened in Notepad for inspection of its contents by right-clicking on it and choosing edit...and any text line can be suspended by typing REM followed by a space in front of the line. I have read the file is sometimes used to speed up the boot process so its not required and can be removed. However, if left on the machine, some anti-virus programs may detect it as the file is not able to be scanned properly.Virus Total report on winstart.bat as of 2010.04.30 <- no anti-virus vendor detected it as a threat to include avast.The fact that the file is unavailable doe not mean it is malware, as the above analysis appears to confirm. Usually when a computer is infected with malware there will be indications (signs of infection) something is wrong.You can resubmit the file for a more current analysis. Go to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:Jotti's virusscanVirusTotalVirSCAN--In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the file(s) in question and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.Note: When searching for malware removal assistance on the Internet, it is not unusual to find numerous hits from untrustworthy and scam sites which mis-classify detections or provide misleading information. This is deliberately done more as a scam to entice folks into buying an advertised fix or removal tool. In some cases if the fix is a free download, users may be enticed to download a malicious file or be redirected to a malicious web site.

ok guys, i've been searching for an ideal backup solution, but haven't had much success. i looked through old threads and couldn't find what i was looking for.

i've tried cobian, comodo, synctoy, karen's replicator, NTI backup and syncback. syncback seems to be the best out of the lot.

i remember using something some time ago that: didn't use much system resources and also had a 'verify' button to check that files had been backed up properly. could anyone help me out on which one i'm referring to? i remember it had a green button or two.

I have searched for an answer already !! - honest.
There are loads of threads about filesync software but what I cannot find is one that I can schedule to run daily without me having to manually run it.
I have used Sync Toy and try but may I simply cannot get windows scheduler to run it automatically. The best I can do is get the scheduler to bring up the front screen automatically but I still have to click on 'run'. I have tried -R etc and everthing else recommended.

The simple answer would be a good simple program that I can set to run daily / weekly etc.

Please can anybody help or do they all need to be run by Windows scheduled tasks.

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.

Ok, I am about to setup a server used for file syncing and an online db (like SQLite or something?) anyway, I also wanna have Fedora running on it..

I guess I can just get any server and install what I want + make it do what I want it to do, but what server(s) and/or system specs should I be specifically looking at for doing those things better than other servers?

A:File sync + online DB buying advice

Depends. Do you actually need a server?

Are we talking about a dedicated server in a datacenter, or are you building a server at home/work and using it connected to the internet there?

You need to tell us what you want to do with the server. If its a dedicated server, what do you plan to do with it? Monthly bandwidth, unique visitor numbers, number of sites, etc.

For homeserver, again, what is your intended usage. Your current post is far too vague to give any realistic answer.

running XP sp3 on both desktop and netbook. Zone Alarm firewall is on both machines, but has been configured to allow access each way.

I am using freefilesync and am trying to sync a folder and it's content (about 200mb) over my home network from the desktop PC to an SDHC card in the netbook card reader.

Whenever I run the sync it get an error message:

windows error message 5 access is denied.

I have googled, but don't know enough to separate what I need from the search results.

I have been able to copy and paste the folder and it's contents directly from the desktop to the netbook sdhc card, and appear to have read and write access each way.

Any help appreciated.

I've used SyncToy for quite some time, but like many I find the 2.1 version to be very slow. It's gotten to where, with the larger and larger disks that are in my system, it really is a little annoying to use. I've looked around and there seem to be more than a few file sync programs. I was hoping folks here could recommend which one has the best combination of absolute reliability, speed, and flexibility when syncing files to a NAS.

I found this wiki page

and it's really chock full of info, but real world experience is important too.
