Windows 7 Sync
Posted on 2011-09-24
I have a mapped network drive on a Windows 7 Professional computer.
I set up the folder with the 'Always Available Offline' option by right clicking the mapped network drive so that when I’m out on the road I can see the contents of the drive, amend and re-sync when I am back in the office. The mapped folder is to a NAS box (Netgear storage device).
It is very frustrating however as I cannot set this up correctly and it has never sync'd properly.
When I go to the Sync Centre in Windows 7 and ask it to sync it will stop after a minute and say it stopped because 'The specified network name is no longer available' and it specifies a specific file being sync'd.
The annoying thing is it should be available, the NAS is never turned off and it is connected via IP address which never changes. I am not sure why the sync centre does not move to the next file to syn and try that.. why does it stop completely !?
It does seem to do a half job however. I can see some files sync'd when offline. but there is more than well over 60% missing !
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
