- I've gone into services to ensure that the offline files service is started
- The network storage is not a server or anything, it's just a hard drive in
a caddy connected to my wireless router. The files on the storage drive are
easily accessible across the network and the only trouble I'm having is
> I've just picked up a laptop which came preinstalled with Vista and am slowly
> getting used to use it. I have a wireless network at home (the laptop, 2
> desktops & network storage drive). I have a folder on the Network storage
> drive that I'd like to have synced with the laptop so I can work with the
> files while away from home, but I can't get the files to sync.
> What I have tried so far is this:
> - I've right-clicked on the network folder and checked off 'Always Avilable
> Online' under the Offline Files Tab.
> - The folder (and all its subfolders) show a little green sync symbol next
> to their various names.
> - Forgetting about automatic schedules for now, I've gone into Sync centre
> and tried to manually Sync. The Sync perpetually fails with about 8 conflicts
> and 650 errors.
> - The conflicts always seems to be random temp files, which I then delete
> - The errors are all due to: "The process cannot access the file because it
> is being used by another process" This is strange, because I only have the
> Sync Centre running and all other metwork machines are off.
> What am I missing,how come I can't sync?
