Dreamweaver 8 Synchronization issue

Posted on 2009-04-11
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I am using Dreamweaver 8 and I am having an issue synchronizing with Network Solutions.  I have successfully connected to the remote server.  When I go to synch It tells me that there is no synchronization neccessary which is wrong.  I can drag and drop between local and remote so I know it is not a permissions issue.  I have 12 other sites that I maintain with and I can synch with all of them without any problem.  I have also emptied my local site folder and attempted to synch getting the remote files with no luck.  I contacted Network Solutions but they have no idea why this is going on.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi PhilR714,

In the site definition, under the Remote Site tab, is "Maintain Synchronization Information" checked?

How about the site cache (local info tab)?  Finally, are you using Check-In/Check-Out?

Enable cache is checked and Check In/Check?out is not checked.

Try to do Commands | Rebuild Site Cache and then do a sync.

Unfortunatly I have not been able to resolve the issue even with Network Solution's support.  Thanks for the help.
