Cannot synchronize DBF files in Windows XP.

Hello experts,

I just discovered that XP systems refuse to synchronize DBF (and perhaps other database) files when using Offline files. The idea is obvious: synchronizing database files correcly requires knowing the structure of the database and should be done by some database server, however - these files are used only by me at work and I want to use them at home as well, that is why I use offline files.

Does anybody know how to enable synchronizing of any file type? Of course, I could change the extension - I am looking for a elegant solution.

Thank you.

P.

Hi!

We had the same problem a year ago with mdb files. That's how we solve it.

We are under a w2k3 domain. There's a group policy you have to activate. Note that I'm running a non Engilsh version, so translation maybe mismatched, try to get the whole idea.

Create a new policy. Computer configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Net/Files without connection -> (Policy) Files not cached. You should activate it. Maybe I'm wrong, but, I think I remember it didn't worked for us, leaving the box for extensions blank, so we entered an extension we don't use "*.xxx".  

Try both ways.

Hope I've helped you.
