I have three laptop users who have a offline folder that they all work from.  The problem that I have is that a file will be deleted from a user who is online and when one of the offline users connects to the network and Synchronizes the deleted file will reappear inthe folder.  Is there anway to set this up so that deleted files will not reappear when the offline users Synchronizes?

Hello,

I used to have fun with this all the time when our company used these.  The easist way to deal with this is delete the file when offline.  When the user attempts to sychronise again they should be asked if they want to also delete the network version of the file.  Say yes and the file is then deleted.

Hope this helps
