Missing Files when syncing with windows live sync RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having a problem with missing information when I sync my files. We have a spreadsheet for everyday of the week in a master folder and when I sync the folder Wednesday is always missing on the computer I sync it to. It shows up on the main computer I sync'd from but never on the other computer. We like the convenience of windows live sync so we dont want to switch to another program. Are there any suggestions to what we are doing wrong?

  • In order for Live Sync to work, both computers need to be on and connected to the back end service so that the file can be transferred between PCs.

    If a file is in use, it cannot be synchronized. If the file changes on both PCs before a sync takes place, you'll get a second copy of the file with the source PC name included since the file is now in conflict.

    That said, you are in the wrong forum for Live Sync. This one is for Live Mesh.
