Vista / XP - Offline Files Access Denied
Posted on 2007-03-30
Here is my situation:
-Vista Ultimate Laptop
-XP Professional Desktop workstation
-Home network (not a domain based network)
I have setup offline files on my Vista laptop to sync with a share on my XP Professional workstation. It starts and syncs all the files. Then I turn off wifi on my laptop effectively taking it off the network. Then I edit my offline files. Next I turn my wifi back on reconnecting my laptop to the network. Once a connection is established I proceed to attempt syncing my files. This is what happens:
Text files (*.txt) sync just fine. Any edits I have made to them on my laptop are reflected on my desktop.
Other files (ones I have tried so far are *.xlsx [Excel] and *.png [Image File]) error out and produce the message "Access is Denied".
I've tried rebooting both computers, setting up passwords for my user accounts and ripping my hair out although this hurts and doesn't seem to help much.
Any thoughts? (Remember I'm on a home network and don't have advanced Security settings that a domain network would have.)
