How to ignore specific files to eliminate File Conflict? RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my WHS,  have a Music share which I sync using Windows Live Sync to my laptop. Because WLS creates a .fslock file in the root of the folder and leaves it open at all times, WHS complains about there being File Conflicts. 

    How do I exclude the .fslock file from WHS's folder dupication logic?

  • You can't. The best that you can do is to shut down Windows Live Sync for at least one full hour out of every 24. If a file is locked, Drive Extender can't work with it, and you will see a file conflict after 24 hours.
