Why am I getting this Error (There are File Conflicts) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Today, I started get a "there are file conflicts" on my WHS (HP Mediasmart 487). When I click on details, it is for a public fileshare that my kids use to do their homework. It says 1 file is open, along with 2 other temp files.

    My son is editing this document. Why would I get this error? Not one else is using that fileshare or file.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Please see this FAQ. Your son more than likely has left the files open for more than 24 hours which means that Windows Home Server (DE specifically) cannot duplicate the file. Once the file is closed and DE makes another pass, the conflict message will go away.

    Thank you
