No Sync center icon or Sync Partnership shown.

Q: No Sync center icon or Sync Partnership shown.

Hi,
I've got a problem with Windows 7 service pack 1 machines that were installed between 2011 and 2015 using Sync Center.
On these machines, I do not get either
1. Sync Center icon in the taskbar
2. Sync Partnerships shown in Sync Center (accessed through Control Panel).
Sync does run, and the CSC cache contains an offline copy of the files. I simply need access so I can identify and troubleshoot Sync issues as the user.
A new imaged machine since 2016 does not have this problem.
We are running Lenovo machines and am aware of the Rapidboot issue, however that software was only installed on laptops and the problem is with both desktop and laptops.
I believe it may be down to Windows updates applied between 2011 and 2015.
From a machine that is NOT working, I have listed all the WSUS updates below that were install. This list however is approx. 150 updates and I do not want to have to remove each individually to find the problem. It may also not resolve the problem once the
update has been removed if I could even identify the update.
I have read that the following updates could cause problems, however after removing these two it made no difference.

Preferred Solution: No Sync center icon or Sync Partnership shown.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,
I have been scratching my head for a couple of days with this one and I have still not resolved it.  We are using folder redirection (deployed via group policy) for my documents, pictures and favorites.  The problem I have on my computer is that
even though the event viewer for my computer suggests it has all redirected correctly with event id 501 "Successfully applied policy and redirected folder <foldername> to <UNCPATH>".  I have tried deleting my user profile and letting
it re-create itself.  Moved my home drive onto another 2008 R2 file server.  Confirmed that the permissions are based on the following MS article;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2512089 .  Tried clean-booting the OS, but still no icon in the taskbar or partnership listed in sync center, even though I can work offline/online with the explorer
buttons.  I can confirm that the offline files is working in the background as when I work in offline mode, then create a directory/file locally and then reconnect, I can see the data move to the server.
What is going on?  I am at the stage of completely ditching my machine!
Cheers

A:Windows 7 Sync Center Taskbar Icon disappeared & no offline files partnership also

I have re-built my computer as I could not live with this issue any longer.  On rebuild it all works as it should, so I do not understand what happened.  Obviously, offline-files still has operational issues that cant be explained, and although
you can turn on verbose logging in event viewer, it is still a technology that still has some way to go in terms of further development.  There is not a real alternative to offline-files, so we will have to make do for the moment.  Don't get me wrong,
it is a step in the right direction from the old XP days, but I think it needs to be improved so that troubleshooting can be made a little easier when things do go wrong.

I had a drive mapped to my computer and had set up a sync partnership with it. I have since removed the mapped drive but the system still has that sync entry in Sync Center. I have tried to remove it but can't. Can't turn off "always available offline" either.

I can see the previously mapped drive in the network but it's only a ghost of the drive itself and nothing I can get rid of there either.

I also tried to delete the offline files through sync management and it goes through the motions but stays in the sync center.

Hopefully the screenshots explain this better.

I'd entertain the option of completely removing all signs that anything was ever synced and start again with a clean slate but I don't know how to go about that aside from using a restore point.

Lastly I tried toggling off and then on the whole Sync feature.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

A:Cannot remove sync partnership. Status: Disconnected drive

I was able to get it resolved. I didn't really understand how to remove that one parternership but I followed the steps in the "Fix it Yourself" section on the following page and it removed all synced locations. I then just added back the ones I wanted.

We have have setup offline files in our network by configuring the appropriate GPO's.
When a user logs onto a freshly installed windows 7 SP1 workstation the sync partnership is present.
When that users logs off and then another user logs on, there is no sync partnership present for that other user.
A gpresult /r run under that other user shows that all the appropriate GPO's have been applied successfully.
The only solution I've found so far is to do a format of the offline files cache.
Is this a bug?

A:No sync partnership for second user that logs onto Windows 7 SP1 workstation - Offline Files

The permissions on both the server as well as the client side are correct. 
In the mean time i have found a solution for this problem.
It appears that if the first user logs on and simply sets its homedirectory offline, then logoff and login as another use, that other user cannot get to his/her home directory.
If you then login as the first user again en simply switch it's homedirectory to online, then logoff and login as the other user the homedirectory of that user can be reached again.
Apparently offline files works like this: It takes the the whole \\servername\home$ and puts it offline as a whole, including every folder that is underneath the home$ share, which includes every homedirectory of every user.
This also made me solve the problem. If i simply make the home directory of each user a share and configure offline files to use \\servername\%username%$, there is no problem. Apparently only "\\server\share1" is treated as an independent item
that allows it to be switched offline/online without causing another "\\server\share2" path to be switched to offline/online.
Can you please confirm that my finding are correct?

Okay, this one is a doozy. We had our storage server OS drive crash on our domain which required a reinstall. Luckily the data stores were all there still on a separate RAID, so it was just a matter of redoing the shares after the reinstall. However
we ran into a problem with several laptop users.

As soon as they plugged into the network today, all the work they did during the outage appears to be gone. They appear only to have access to the files on the network (which of course isn't current). As a test, I've tried disconnecting them from
the local network to check their offline files (disabling wireless and unplugging the dock) and they appear to lose access to everything as a result now... both desktop and files.
I've attempted a sync in Sync Center but it simply says "Sync Pending" and hangs there.

When I try to navigate to view my offline files on the system through the Sync Center interface, it says "The system cannot find the file specified."


Out of curiosity, I tried manually navigating to Windows\CSC and access is denied. Even when attempting to take ownership as local admin, it still doesn't want to let me in.

As many of the solutions suggest, I know I could delete the cache and format the db and sync fresh from our network, but they will lose out on all the changes they've made to their documents over the past week or so. They may lose out on a significant
amount of work.

I have a sync in my sync center for microsoft sql server 2000 that I can't get removed, i'm not real sure where it came from or how to get it to go away. When I right click on it i have options to open, explore, sync, schedule and properties. Stop sync, view conflicts and view results are grayed out. When I select open it shows the sync partnership details and has one entry where it says "To create a subscription: select this then click properties". Even if I do that the properties window shows up but has nothing that I can edit. I have attached two pics of whats going on. Any way I can get this to go away?

Hi,

We are using sync center in our environment to sync our home drive to local drive using GPO, however we notice recently sync center partnership automatic create new sync without our notice, and is not configure in any GPO. Is anyone have idea how to trace
where this sync instruction from and how to stop it?

Due to GPO, our sync center option like "Disable offline file" is grey out and unable to use. And the new sync partnership will backup to local drive folder  C:\Windows\CSC and unable to delete it. Thanks

Hi
I got a Vundo Virus on my XP desktop (currently using my Vista Laptop) and it took some doing, but MalwareBytes seems to have cleaned it up.
I have notice two seemingly residual problems (at least I never had these problems before)

1. Live Sync doesn't sync the files.
I have been syncing the XP desktop to the Vista laptop and never had an issue, in fact it was one of the MS programs that I thought actually worked really well.
Now, everything says that it's working but nothing is syncing.
I checked the Port Status, Initiate Connection shows OK on all 4 ports, but Accept Connection has Blocked on all 4.
When I stop and restart Live Sync, I can see the Vista laptop goes thru all of the files, but does nothing after.
If I do the same on the XP, it seems to look and find no files to sync.
I have tried uninstalling and re-loading on the XP, no help.

2. My Windows 6.5 phone would not sync with ActiveSync either.
I found a troubleshooting post that said to uncheck in USB->PC "Enable advanced network functionality", so I did and the phone did sync, but before it did a warning came up on the phone saying that this would completely delete all contact, calender and mail data and they would be re-loaded with the sync (which IT did - took forever).

Did this Trojan screw with my syncing ability in a general way?

Thanks
Randu

Hi all,

I've noticed Sync Center rules have been setup by itself. I believe this is to have a local copy of my files from my network in case I don't have network access. Is this correct?
How does Win 7 decide which files to sync? Are they the folders I add to my "Libraries"?
Since it syncs files from a server that's always on (and not just a network drive that may not be on all the time), is there any reason why I cannot turn off this feature? If not, how?

Also, I use Sync Toy and Task Scheduler to copy local files to my server every night for backup reasons. How is Sync Center different than Sync Toy? Would Sync Center be a better option for this task? I clicked on "Set up new sync partnerships", but got the message that "There are no new sync partnerships that can be set up on this computer".
Is this because my server is a Windows Home Server box? Is this also why the syncs that were setup automatically "files from my Library" received error messages stating that it could not connect?
Sorry for all the questions! I appreciate any help!

A:Sync Center

Hello Jamie,

Sync Center is used to manage your Offline Files from your network. The ability to use Offline Files is enabled by default in Windows 7, but can be disabled. If you wanted to have offline files, then you would have to manually make the network files or folders available offline first since there are none available by default. The tutorials below can help give you more details and information on this though.Offline Files - Enable or Disable the Use Of
Offline Files - Encrypt or Unencrypt
Offline Files - Manage Disk Space Usage
Offline Files Status - View and Change
Offline Files - View All
I have not used Sync Toy, so I'm not sure how it compares with using Sync Center and Offline Files in Windows 7. It seems to do a great job for me with my WHS server though. You might give it a try to see how you like it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have been able to sync a network folder to offline files on Vista, but the problem I am having is what if the network was down and I created a new file or folder. Can I add that file or folder to the offline files somehow and then have it automatically sync when the network is back up?

Spent half the day trying to figure out why I don't have anything in Sync Center in Vista HP and now I stumble across an old post here which informs me it's not to be had on HP! I fail to understand why this feature is part of the installed programs when it's not available in Home Premium; what a waste of time! Tried Sync Toy 2.0 to keep some personal files up to date between my PC (Home Premium) and Laptop (Ultimate) but I don't seem to be able to make that work right either; used "Contacts" for a try and files get updated from my Laptop unto the PC but not the other way around using "synchronize." Switched left and right sides for either machine, same result. I can't even use Briefcase which I got set up on an external HD connected to my PC because the personal files are under a different user name on the Laptop. At least for me, Vista has become an absolute nightmare!

Vista's Sync Center looks promising but from what i have read is geared towards device/pc sync not pc to pc sync.
any ideas how i can activley sync both pcs?
 

A:Sync Center - 2 PC's

No, but SyncToy (also from Microsoft--free) can do this. It will sync folders.

Keep in mind, if you are using Outlook, while the Contact list is a separate file, the calendar is part of the PST file (with mail).

I'm having problems using Windows Vista Sync Center. I want to sync folders on my laptop and my desktop. Unfortunately, whenever I go to sync center and select "set up new partnerships," the only item that shows up is Offline Files. I'm assuming here I should be seeing a list of computers on my network. Not really sure why they're not showing up... Here's the rundown:

Laptop Stats:

HP Pavilion 1x 1000 Notebook PC
AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-60 2.0 GHz
1982 MB RAM
32 bit operating system
Windows Vista Business
Norton Internet Security 2007

Desktop Stats:
Self-built
Intel Motherboard socket 478
Pentium 4 2.8 GHz
2047 MB RAM
32 bit operating system
Windows Vista Ultimate
Norton Internet Security 2007

I'm using a D-Link Rangerbooster N wireless router.

So far what I've done is-
For both computers:

-Went into Norton Internet Security Firewall settings and put the IP addresses of each computer under the "trusted" list of devices.
-File sharing is enabled in Network and Sharing center

In control panel network connections I am able to see all the computers on the network and access/change their files. Seems like I've covered all my bases....

Anyone know if I'm forgetting something or doing sometihng wrong? Any help would be AWESOME.

Hello,
I have an end user computer who's file sync is not working. When Sync Center is enabled, I only get the option to "Set Up" under set up new sync partnerships, which just tells me I need to pick my files/folders, right-click and select "Always
available offline". My desktop folder for example always has "Always available offline" enabled and the option to check or uncheck is grayed out. I'm not able to set up the sync partnership.

Computer info:
- Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
- Domain joined
- Using folder redirection to a file server

Here is what I've tried thus far:
1. Disabled Sync Center and deleted the contents of the "C:\Windows\CSC" Folder Then enabled sync center (did not fix)
2. Re-initialized database by adding this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Csc\Parameters
               the name FormatDatabase of type REG_DWORD (i.e DWord 32-bit value) (Did not fix the issue)
3. Checked to make sure offline files were not encrypted
4. Deleted temporary files (did not fix)
5. Confirmed that there are not GPO's disallowing file sync (other users have sync center working successfully)
Here is a screen shot showing the Desktop folder being available offline but with no sync partnerships.

Hi,

My question is about the Sync Center feature found in both the Windows Vista and 7 control panels. Microsoft describes it like this : Windows Vista introduces Sync Center, which enables users to synchronize their data with other computers and devices from one common user interface.

I cant get this thing set up. I cannot see any folders from the other computers on this thing. I can/access folders the Network explorer, but I dont want to share files where I can pull a file off another system. I want to sync files where the most up-to-date version is placed onto all systems when systems are available for the sync process.

Apparently the Sync Center is geared toward mobile devices despite its claims for use with computer files.

I want to use it with Onenote and some document folders. The onenote sync feature doesnt work with Vista for me. I suppose I can use Syncback which I like, but if there's a built-in option such as Sync Center I'd like to use that.

Thanks.

PS : Two Windows 7 desktop systems, and one Windows Vista laptop that will be upgraded to Windows 7 as soon as the free-upgrade-to-windows-7 disc comes in.

Hello All

I have found a lot of complaints on the Sync Center but very little solutions.

The problem I am having is whenever I plug in any external memory device (I.E. Ipod) I get: Microsoft Syn Center has stopped working. I do received a workaround through the build in help thingy but it does not work. I have also tried replacing the wmp.dll file and that does not work. The Sync center intself shows nothing, as if it is not even being used. The error menu gives you the option to close program and after which all seems to work as normal. I am the kind of person who wants things to work and not just have a band aid put over it.

Thanks Tim

My Wife has a new ASUS tablet with Windows 8.1 Pro on it, and a Desktop with the same OS and we want to keep her checking program current on both machines. Can Sync Center be used to do this or is there something better. Thanks

A:Sync Center Windows 8.1 Pro

If she is sharing files between the desktop & tablet, she should maybe store them in a Cloud account or NAS on your network. I keep my files stored in an Owncloud storage space, that my brother runs on a server at his house. Only family members have access. I also keep a copy in my box.com. Backups for the systems are kept on my NAS on my network.

Okay *controlling frustration - barely*

Here's the chain of events:

My PPC has been on the fritz a bit lately. I called the maker's tech support and they gave me instructions to do a hard reset. Essentially getting rid of everything on the little bugger and starting fresh. Fine. I did that, knowing that all my contacts, calendar crap and all was on my Vista running PC. After the hard reset, I plug back in, Sync Center goes to work and syncs me back up. It's like nothing ever happened. That was a few weeks ago.

Now, the saying: When it rains, it pours.

Just the other day, Norton ran out of subscription. Fine. I wanted to try the freebies anyway. I uninstall Norton using their whiz-bang uninstaller thing that I found through a thread on the forum. I then install AVG AV Free and Comodo FW 3.

Comodo needs to restart after a quick check of everything, I get to my login screen, enter info, screen goes black *beep* restarts. This continues a few more times, each time I hope and pray it's a glitch. Not so. I restart in safe mode, uninstall Comodo, clean the reg w/ CCleaner, back to normal. Decide: Okay, Norton worked fine, Internet Security 2009 actually sounds good. Before this happens, while making calls to local shops to find a copy, my PPC starts fritzing again.

Hard-reset, attempt to plug back into PC to regain contacts, etc, in so doing, I break the USB port on the front of my tower (how I don't know), so I try the port next to it. It goes in, I hear the *du-D... Read more

I am using a mapped networked folder on a Dlink DNS-323 NAS box. The sync sets up fine and synchronizing without reporting errors.

I have created a shortcut from the networked folder 'x:\users\SyncUser' to the desktop.
When I click 'Work Offiline' from explorer, I can use the shortcut to open the folder, but I receive an error message saying the 'file is not currently available on this computer'. Trying to access the same file through the Sync Center gives the same error.

Any suggestions what I might be doing wrong, and how I can get this working please? Thanks in advance

I have been having a strange problem where Sync Center seems to be storing network drives as offline folders.

Even though I am connected to the network all the time and the network drives never go offline they still become unavailable.

The network drive appear in the sync partnerships but I have not set these up and have been unable to remove them even when turning offline files off and back on again.

The only Sync which should be there is the folder for eel1651 the rest are network drives which it should not be trying to Sync. It is causing files to become unavailable even when I am currently working on them, so I can't save them.

Hello,
We are planning to migrate our home drives (about 2500 users) from old storage array (Celerra Array) to new storage array (Isilon Array). Couple of months ago we started migrating 50 users. We faced many problems. We sent out emails to the users telling
them to clear Sync conflicts so that it would copy the data from their U Drive (Group policy) to the Celerra Array. But when they started doing that, after all the Sync conflicts has been cleared we expected that the data from U drives will be copied to Celerra
Array but it is happening reverse way. As the Sync relation ship was broke, what ever the work they do it is been saving on their local PC's and not reflecting on Celerra Array. So once the Sync relation is made good by clearing all the conflicts, Sync center
got connected to the Array and is overriding the data from Celerra to U drive by which they are losing all their data saved these many days. This is only for those users whose Sync relation is broken. We tried many ways to copy the data from user laptops (U
Drive to Isilon) but its not copying the offline files which got created when the Sync relation broken. Can someone please suggest an idea to deal with these home drive migrations?

I've got a question about using Sync with Windows Sync Center.

I have a NAS device on the network which has a folder synced to my documents on the local computer via Sync Center. My question is, when I save a file to my documents, while connected to the network, does the file save to the offline directory and then sync to the NAS or, since I'm currently connected to the NAS, does it write directly to the NAS?

Thanks,

Sometimes it does sync but frequently it won't.
One time I will plug in and it will sync and stay connected and continue syncing as long as necessary just like I assume it is supposed to.
Other times there is some initialization but no connection.
Sometimes it will disconnect after some time of syncing activity.
I have resorted to keeping an icon on my desktop to reinstall sync center and that will frequently initiate a sync but not always.
If I reboot the laptop the PDA is recognized but only as an external drive. Then when I do the Sync Center reinstall it will usually initialize and complete the sync.
I have run the entire gambit of rebooting the laptop, rebooting the PDA, plugging and unplugging, trying different USB ports and cables. Sometimes it works but a most of the time I just keep trying different things until I get a sync. I have occasionally considered trying bluetooth just to see if it would make any difference.

All our users' profiles (desktop and Documents) are stored in the server (AD server). When they log on or log off, their offline files will auto sync. (I believed it?s a domain policy; when a user is created on AD, the profile folder will auto create for sync as well).

Here is the case:
We have a local branch office; they connect to head quarter via VPN. Branch has their own local AD server and users? profiles are store there locally (but all AD servers link together).
We brought a Win7 PC back from branch to head quarter.
I change this PC?s IP and computer name (take off and re-add to the domain).
I also deleted all other user?s profile on the local computer.
However, while a Head quarter user(including admin) log on to this PC, it will auto link to the AD server on branch office, then the sync will fail, since the user?s profile is not there.
I tried to relocate the sync folder, but the user got access denied whiling he tried to view his own profile.
I don?t know how to change its default sync folder and delete it. When I tried to add a new folder, it said that there are no new sync partnerships I can set up.
I am pretty new to feather of Sync Center.
Any suggestion?

Hello,
I am trying to figure how the Checkbox in the resolve conflicts popup window is working.
If you check the box and click on the local file, does it mean that all other conflicts will be resolved choosing the local file even if older than server one ?
Does this window display conflicts by "type" ? I mean, a group of oldest in local, a group of oldest on server, etc. ?

Is someone really know/understand the best way to resolve conflict except one by one ?
Thanks.

I am in an all vmware setup currently in a single data center.  
I have one domain controller (so far in the deployment) dc01.  I have one Center (ata01) and a gateway (atagwy01).
ata01 has two nics.  One with the management site on it (.38) and another nic with just an ip and subnetmask and it has the service site (.37).  The gateway has two nics.  One for management (.36) and the mirrored port (promiscuous mode in
vmware) on a network adapter named capture.  Capture has an ip address of 1.1.1.1 255.0.0.0 as suggested in a MS document.  
I have downloaded the gateway package and installed it on the gateway.  I went to the console and set the settings for the FQDN of my dc01, the capture nic, etc.  At the top it just says synching with the latest configuration but does not seem
to be progressing.  I see in the demos that they can search for a user in just a minute, but it has been 30 and i still see nothing.  
I have turned the firewall off on both network adapters of both servers.  How can i see what is causing the issues for this sync?  Ifi search for a user, it will just yield a blank search result.  It does say that if discovered a new domain
on the right side but nothing more.

I'm running Vista

First is the Sync Center thing. I don't know how it got on my computer, but I don't want it, I don't work with SQL at all at home, and everytime I boot up it does the "Installing" thing. It's really annoying.

Does this need to be on my computer? Can I remove it? How?


Now for my second problem, the TOSHIBA error.

The reason I know its something to do with TOSHIBA, is because I googled the process name; heres the problem though.
Almost everytime I boot up, I get this:


I'm not sure why though.

If anyone has any insight on either of these problems, please post.

Thank you.

A:Sync Center and a TOSHIBA error? :s

Hi -

Toshiba first - Many of the OEM (manufacturer) programs were written for XP and eventhough some/most not-Vista compatible, here they are on Vista. On several of my systems - HP, Fujitsu, Sony, etc... I have disabled ALL system services that I could locate. I would advise that you do the same - but 1 at a time to assure that none are essential to your system's performance.

START | type services.msc - locate Toshiba services, 2x-click on the service, click on STOP (if running), click on Automatic or manual and change it to Disabled (drop down menu). Click Apply, then OK.

I would suggest that you do the same for the Sync Center if it is present in Services. If not, try MS SysInternals AutoRuns. Download AutoRuns from MS TechNet and SAVE to desktop. Right-click on icon and select Run as administrator. Go through the tabs starting w/ LOGON. If you find the Sync Center, un-check it. This will prevent it from start-up. You can re-check any that you un-check whenever you like.

Before you do anything, I suggest that you create a system restore point as both methods listed above will affect the registry.
START | rstrui - create restore point.
