Briefcase Update Errors..
Posted on 1998-11-03
I have a user, with a Briefcase ('95/osr2) on his desktop - that syncs to an NT Server (v4.0/sp3/intel) over ethernet&TCP/IP. There are 1200 files, totalling 80Mb.
Other than the obvious - that this user is on crack, I have another problem; the briefcase update function reports that over a dozen files have both been modified at the same time on the same date. It wants to SKIP updating them both. Alas, they do not SKIP when told, and always show up for the next Update..
Err, In tackling this, I've got a few assumptions that I'd like to air; does the Briefcase keep an Index of the files it's using, or generate one each time you 'Update..'? -- If so, where is this index, and will deleting it somehow force this yucky problem to (likely) go away?
Second, where on earth do you turn for Technical information on this stuff - the briefcase is virtually un-mentioned in either the KB or Technet - I'm lost trying to find readable material.
Help, Help, Help..? -- Again, I know this is going to be a difficult one - points will increase as we get into it. <grin>
