    RE: illustrator files

    Yes, I noticed this, too! Illustrator files do not sync, .ai as well as .ait
    (Illustrator template files). Also, it seems like a lot of my Indesign files
    don't sync, but some, maybe 1/3 or less, do sync. That part confuses me
    more, I can't figure out why some indesign files sync and others don't.
    Every Illustrator file I've looked at does not sync, though.

    RE: illustrator files

    Right, my work around is to save ai files I need as a pdf and they come
    across fine, although I have been caught on the road missing ai files.
    Microsoft? any answers
    Incidentally, I'm running foldershare across multiple osx machines and
    sucesfully synced all types of files prior to the microsoft release.

    Just to confirm. I'm having the same issues with Indesign files. Bah!
    (That is between a vista machine and an OSX mac)

    RE: illustrator files

    Found this answer on another forum:

    Adobe Programs such as InDesign and Photoshop on the MAC enable "resource
    forks" which I understand is a form of metadata which foldershare no longer
    supports. As a result, files used and saved on a MAC using InDesign and
    Photoshop will not sync to a PC or MAC whereas files created in these
    programs on a PC will sync to another PC and MAC as these files will not have
    "resource forks".

    The workaround is to zip the file on the MAC. The zip file hids the
    "resource forks".

    I had this same problem and received this response from Microsoft. Adobe
    and now iPhoto 08 have the same problem now as iPhoto 08 has switched to a
    package format.

    No syncing of InDesign-Files

    RE: illustrator files

    So does anyone know of an alternative to Foldershare that does work with
    Indesign/Illustrator files? I'm pretty much ready to ditch Foldershare
    because these are the files I work with every day.
