Hi
If you had a sync conflict and chose to keep the server copy and then realized you actually wanted the local copy instead, can you get the local copy back?

From the Windows sync help on the conflict subject:

"If you have also changed the file since you last connected to the network folder, a sync conflict will occur and Windows will ask you which version you want to keep."
(you probably read this already).

So the local file will have been removed by choosing the server copy. Unless you have some sort of local backup available, I can't think of a way to get the local 'copy' back. You may try and explore temporary folders for ~23B92D3F4A.TMP files (the numbers on your system will be different) or look for previous versions through Properties->Previous Versions at the local file's properties.

Okay thanks, I can try and use some file recovery programs but being a tmp file in the first place I'm not sure I'll have much in locating it.

You can start by checking %TEMP% and %USERPROFILE%\temp

If you are starting a file recovery program, best way to do this is by shutting down the system, removing the hard drive (not bitlocker or otherwise encrypted I hope) and attaching it to another PC in a removable USB casing. This way you will be able to prevent temporary space being overwritten by other files.
