Error 0x86000107 when attempting to sync two machines with 1 pda/phone

Posted on 2008-11-17

I have been using windows mobile for quite some time and have had a few errors in syncing over the years.  For some time I have been successfully syncing my device (HTC touch diamond) with two separate computers.  Work computer with Exchange and Home computer with Outlook.

On the work computer I have been syncing:

On the home computer I have been syncing:

Recently the syncing on the home machine has been erroring with error 0x86000107.  It appears to fall over about 200 entries into the calendar syncing.

I have already tried unselecting then reselecting the sync items, all this has done is given me duplicates and then the same issue all over again.  I have tried several trouble shooting ideas but open to suggestions people may have.

I am sure there are other people with this issue.  Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    I spoke to customer support regarding the same issue with the Touch Pro. I had unplug my phone from the PC and on the PC delete the relationship. Then plug the phone back in and synchronize. So far this has worked without error.

    I have read since that there is a patch that should be coming from microsoft.  The issue is encountered when there are (depending on which reports are correct) more than 100 or 200 changes between the pda and the computer.

    Here's hoping that microsoft release an update soon.  And then the manufactures will need to make a rom update.....
