SBS2011 and My Documents seem out of date

Hi All.

We have recently installed SBS2011 at our customers offices and all clients are Win 7 Pro 64bit.

We have had two instances now when a user has opened files in the 'My Documents' or 'Documents' folder and their data is out of date - i.e. they have previously entered data into - say - an Excel spreadsheet (But it has been other items also not just excel) and when they have gone to open it again at a different date, the information in the file is old and not current.

If they re-start their PC and open the same document then the most recent data is now visible.

This seems like a Sync Issue to me.

To confirm some details - on the SBS2011 Server we have client properties (Folders) set to the following:

Enforce Shared Folder Quota - Ticked
Enable Folder Redirection to The Server - Ticked
Enable Folder Redirection Quota - Ticked - Set to 8gb

Any help or insight to this issue would be much appreciated.

Thank you
Regards
Andy

sounds like a connectivity issue, i would disable offline files for all the machines via GPO (2 restarts needed for the client machines after). Also check the PC system log for connection events and report back.

Hi Donnk

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you - have had some issues at work to deal with.

Your answer seems to have resolved the issue - thank you for that.
