Windows 7: No sync partnership for NAS in network

06 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional
No sync partnership for NAS in network

I'm using Windows 7 Professional in a small network with 2 laptops, 1 multi-function-printer and a NAS. The NAS has a static address (as the printer), the laptops are dynamic.

Under Windows XP Pro, I had the main files on the NAS and just made them offline available/synchronized to both laptops, so when I left, I had the offline files with me.

Under Win 7 Prof, this doesn't work anymore and the sync center gives me the error "There are no new partnerships that can be set up on this computer". However, I see the NAS and can access it, but only when online through the network.

Further details: in the Windows explorer, left panel, I see the "Computer" with the local disk, the CD-drive and the NAS-drive (a click opens the file structure with files); below under "Network" I have my NAS (with its name) and when I click on it, it opens with the "Public"-folder and a further click displays the folder structure and files as well.

Any suggestions appreciated!

Problem solved; Function "Enable Offline Files" has to be turnd on first (under "Manage Offline Files" in the Sync Center).
