Chapter 23. Accessing and Using Your Net... > Handling Synchronization Conflicts

Handling Synchronization Conflicts

When Windows Vista synchronizes your offline files, it might find that a file has changed both on the network share and on your offline computer. In that case, the Sync Center icon displays a Sync Conflicts Have Occurred message. Here’s what you do:

1.
Click the Sync Conflicts Have Occurred message to open the Sync Center.

2.
Click View Sync Conflicts. The Sync Center displays a list of the conflicts.

3.
Select the conflict you want to work with.

4.
Click Resolve. Vista displays a Resolve Conflict dialog box similar to the one shown in Figure 23.10.



Figure 23.10. Use the Resolve Conflict dialog box to tell Vista how you want it to handle a file that has been changed both locally and offline.


5.
Click the version you want to keep, or click Keep Both Versions to have the offline version saved under a modified filename.
