XP Laptop Client to SBS 2003 File Syncronization Issue
Posted on 2009-05-08
We have SBS 2003 and a XP Client which has file syncronization issues randomly. The user gets error messages that some files were not able to sync. It is strange some files sync while other do not.
This is actually a new Dell D830 purchased three months ago. The file syncronization worked fine for the last two months and has decided to give us problems now. We actually were experiencing similiar problems on the users previous laptop which we replaced three months ago. The problem seems to have moved from the old laptop to the new laptop. It might be a completely different issue since this is a new laptop.
I have another XP laptop which has been running file syncronization with no problems.
The user which is experiencing issue is syncing a large number of files 10gig and has a very complex folder structure. I am wondering if there is an issue with the amount of data that can be synced properly. I have read on some messages it could be fingerprint software. I still need to investigate this possiblity today as the user has been out of town.
Any help would be appreciated.
