Continue on Roaming Profile Error

Hello everyone,

I have setup roaming profiles for a few select users on our network. The profiles work great except for a syncronization error that pops up everytime my users logout.

It's erroring out on 2 files and giving the reason: "This type of file cannot be synchronized". We then have to manually click "Close" everytime. It's just annoying and a waste of time.

I have configured the "Exclude directories in roaming profile" option in hopes that would stop trying to sync this useless directory (OpenOffice), but to no avail. We still get the error...

I configured the romaing profiles using the "Profile" tab directly on the user objects (rather than using group policy).

The server is running Server 2003 (Latest everything)...
Our workstations are all : XP Professional (Latest everything)...

Any ideas?

I think you can see the two errors in the Synronisation-centre. Probably open or locked files. Try to exclude those two files. If this doesn't fix the problem, what are the two files?
