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?

Thanks for the help .. I just setup a group policy to omit those files from sync. I'm awarding you the points as you were the only one who answered AND you were definately on the right track ... thanks!
