Windows Server 2003 My Documents syncronization to computer from 3-month old backup
Posted on 2013-01-24
An XP desktop computer hard drive died. The latest Ghost backup for it was 3 months old, so we have restored to that time period.
The My Documents folder had been set up to sync with the Server 2003 system.
My question is this: Is there anything special I need to do to ensure getting the latest synchronized files from the server and ensure that the 3-month-old files don't accidentally override the newer Server 2003 files? I'm hoping I just need to connect the re-built desktop to the server and the latest files will magically update from the Server.
