Computers see different versions of same shared file
Posted on 2011-09-14
I've got a really WEIRD problem on my client's computers, that I really need to solve. I'm totally baffled and need some help.
Here's the setup:
There is an Excel file located on a file share on a Netgear ReadyNAS.
The client computers are both running Windows 7 with Excel 2010.
The share is mapped on both computers as the V: drive.
On computer A, he sees the file with a timestamp of 9/14/11.
On computer B, she sees the exact same file, on the exact same file share, with a timestamp of 8/30/11. When she opens up the file, it is showing data from 2 weeks ago. It's not the current version of the file at all! It doesn't even look like the file that Computer A sees.
If he renames the file, she can see the new filename and the new data. If he names the file back to the old name, she again sees the file as 8/30 with the old data.
I'm totally at a loss to explain this. Can anyone please help? They need to be looking at the same version of the file.
