Windows 7: Windows Sync Hiding Synced files from Other Users

Windows Sync Hiding Synced files from Other Users


I'm currently using Windows Sync centre to sync file to my laptop from the network so they can be accessed and worked on while disconnected from the server. The problem I have is that when I connect back to the server after having worked on a file when disconnected from the server the other users on the network can't see the file on the server even though it there are no sync conflicts or errors and I am able to see it on the server.

for some reason the file is hidden from the other users on the network whenever I sync a file I have worked on while offline.

Has anyone had any experience of this or know of a way to fix it.

Howdy. I noticed that if I save a file to my C:\, it sorta gets swallowed up. I was in SQLyog working on my MySQL server and did a table export. I saved it as "c:\table.sql". I flipped to my DOS window and did a DIR and didn't see it. Tried DIR /AH, no dice. DIR /AS, nope. Nada. Opened a...
