Files lost when offline laptop is connected to SBS 2003 domain
Posted on 2006-06-19
This installation has a SBS2003 with 8 Windows XP-Pro clients. Half are desktops and the other half are SONY VIAO Laptops. The domain is set up to Sync both MyDocuments and the clients Desktop to the server. The files are synced to Drive D:/User Shared Documents/
Seven of the clients are working properly, however one client Laptop has created several files while it was off line. When the Laptop is connected to the SBS Domain, the new files disappear from the laptop and are not transferred to the SBS server.
I did a search for the files on the SBS and they were not found.
I did a search for the files on the Client Laptop and a Link to the files were found under C:/Documents and Settings/User/Recent Documents.
The link points to a file on the server, but the file has not been transferred to the server.
I checked to see if the client could browse to the Server using Windows Explorer and it could get to the folder where the link pointed, but no file. Original file was lost.
