Outlook "Synchronize" option doesn't work! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to sync Outlook files on a laptop running XP Home and my desktop running XP Pro.

    I've chosen "Synchronize" files.

    The problem is the desktop continues to overwrite the laptop.  This is bad! 

    Any help!?

  • Hi -

    You should close outlook on both systems when running SyncToy for sure ( in our latest version we will skip sync'ing the file if we find it open). But why is it bad that the desktop continues to overwrite the laptop - "synchronize" will try to overwrite the older file and you are convinced that the laptop if the later file?
