Does "Sync Your Settings" also Sync File Associations?

Q: Does "Sync Your Settings" also Sync File Associations?

Because I didn't think so, but now it seems maybe they do:

Windows 8.1 .bat file glitched

The only thing I can think of is that this person was using an MS account and had Synced his Settings including File Associations, so that when he did a Fresh Install of Windows 8, and logged in with the MS account, it ruined his File Association. We've tried everything to set the association to default, but maybe the OS is resetting it to what it was when it was Synced.

Anyone concur? Because I never thought File Associations were being synced, if this is the case it would explain a few unsolvable problems that have cropped up lately.

Preferred Solution: Does "Sync Your Settings" also Sync File Associations?

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 Jon,

Nope. File associations are not synced. At least not on any of my systems.

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

Hey guys,
I have been running a D-Link DSL-G604T (wireless G ethernet router/modem combo) for well over 2 years at my house (old house with old wiring) with the same provider, nothing has changed as far as my network, hardware and software configurations... The router is around 4 years old.. A few months ago I started experiencing intermittent dropouts, maybe a few times a week, removing the phone line to the modem and replacing it would reconnect it. Now around 2 weeks ago the router is dropping connection a few times an hour, upon looking in the router log I see pages and pages of "DSL in sync", DSL out of sync" many entries within the same second block. The modem shows that the connection is "connected" but pages just time out, pings also fail. Cutting the power to the modem and reconnecting or "saveing and reboot the system" seem to be the only way to convince it to reconnect.

The last few days the connection was almost totally inoperable so I rang my provider (TPG) and they did a line test, they seem to think the line is fine but could see that it was "extremely unstable" They did some kind of line optimization that reduced my speed (pathetic as it was) but made the net stable and usable (although the log still continued to record in and out of sync errors), the reasonable level of stability lasted only a day or so and has now reverted to it's bipolar state.

I am on a naked ADSL2+ connection.

A:Solved: Constant "DSL in sync", "DSL out of sync", "DSL in sync"

To the extent possible check the phone wiring from the entrance to your modem/router. If, for example, a squirrel has been chewing on it ... well, you get the picture. If you have a NID at the entrance (where you can disconnect interior wiring) you could also check your modem/router connected there.

Other than your wires it pretty much has to be the ISP or the modem. I don't know how you can tell which other than trying a different modem or getting their cooperation.

Is there a detailed list of what is lumped under "Other Windows settings"? In particular, I would like to know if it stores changes made to the registry to hide certain "standard" directories/folders in File Explorer. But in general, it would be nice to have a list to determine if there is something in there that I do not want synced.

The link "How does Sync work?" uses the word "some" and that is always a bit fuzzy. And my question about registry changes vs. customization through menu choices is still not clear with the reference to File Explorer.

I am unable to sync around two dozen songs to my SanDisk Sport! Windows Media Player shows a red x at about 20 - 30 of them with just the word "Error". no other information is showing. right clicking on the x and selecting "error details" does nothing. If I try those songs again, same "error" problem. all 320 songs are music I made myself all using the same ACID Music Studio program so I do not know why it just says error on several of them. Google does not like the search for it and I don't blame it, how in the world is "error" going to make any hits?? even when adding "Windows media player sync" to the search.

and for the record, that's a new low for Microsoft to give an error message that just reads "error" without giving any more information on what the problem could be.

At first I thought my hanging issues were the result of synching my itl and xml library files from another pc (which on the remote pc.. i use the exact same drive letter/folder structure as the home, base pc).. I was trying to find an easier to way to update the changes i would make to my built in itunes playlists on the home pc.. rather than than just reimporting m3u versions of the playlist or manually changing things twice on each pc...

So i put back the original itl and xml files.. but every time i click exit on itunes it just hangs.. i have to kill the task in Vista (x86, sp1).. The problems and reports shows apphangB1.. apop version 7.6.1.9.. app time stamp 47bb3aa0, hang signature 3c5f hang type 2048...

If i connect as a different user, i have no issues exiting the program under that id...

Any thoughts out there? Any thoughts on whether its a bad or good idea to sync the itl / xml files or an alternative way to keep changes to playlists on a 2nd pc in sync with the primary, short of the methods i currently use.. as of now i'm not synching the xml/itl's anymore, though i dont think this was what is causing the hangs.

I just installed a new video card (HIS ATI Radeon X1300 Turbo IceQ), my previous card was an ATI Radeon 9500. I had no problem upon upgrading, everything went smoothly. I also installed the new ATI drivers (with the catalyst control center).

Now, the problem is that at random times (mostly when I'm browsing the net), the computer either freezes so that I have to restart it, OR the monitor blacks out and displays "Sync. Out of Range" and again I have to restart.

My current desktop settings are 1024x768 at 70Hz. I never had this problem with my previous video card (my settings with my old video card were 1024x768 at 75Hz, as you can see I tried turning down the refresh rate but had no luck).

gang I confess this is a Vista-related problem but I need an idea or three.
this is a good fast hp minitower, Athlon x64-based, that I previously CAREfully reworked Vista Business on and had it lean/mean/clean and fast. A year later it needed work - when booting up normally and logging in to the main User account, the display is "fried" - it displays a regular pattern of wavy lines with no image, nothing readable. I cleaned it up and got it displaying normally again. Two days later, issue recurs. No malware, no odd things running in the background. On a second, debug-only account, I log in and everything looks fine, but nobody uses that one.

I'm baffled by what could be causing this? I don't want to just "dumb down" the display settings and hope for the best... that's a non-answer.

is there some issue with desktop-image-display? themes? Aero? sunspots ??

A:"Noise" display - loss of sync? refresh problem? cause?

From the sounds of it that may be a hardware issue although you make it sound like it's user related. Depending on your definition of 'wavy lines'. Could be the GPU or the monitor. Try troubleshooting both.

After installing several programs, including Vegas v7.0d and its Media Manager, on Windows Vista Business, suddenly
I noticed Vista's icon for Sync Center running by the taskbar clock, and a virtual drive also appeared in My Computer labeled CD Drive. The info in this virtual drive's properties show that its ID is the same as my C drive, on which my operating system is on. However, if you open it there is nothing there.
On opening the Sync Center from a right click on the icon, it shows the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 running. Beneath that it shows Sync Setup and a folder within it is labeled Offline files, Network files available offline, as seen in the images below.

i have never tried using windows sync center, never opened it (until i tried digging around for anwsers), etc.. etc.. but every now and then, seemingly spontaneously (but mostly when using windows explorer/firefox/anything at all) i'd get the dialog "Microsoft Sync Center has stopped working".

and that's all. no changes, no advice, no error reporting, no diagnosis, no nothing, doesn't do anything, doesn't stop anything, the only interference is having to deal with the dialog each time (can happen several times in a sitting).

i've searched these forums and google, but most advice is for people TRYING to sync things using this software, i'm NOT TRYING to sync anything! i have not found a hotfix/kb-update or anything, but i have found thousands of unhappy vista users with this particular software.... perhaps Micro$oft should release a patch/hotfix asap to resolve these issues??

is there anything i can do to prevent these annoying dialogs popping up all the time? i've tried downloading and installing Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 just today (the .exe was called drvupdate-x86) so i thought it might resolve the issue by installing most up-to-date-drivers but it seems to be a completely different software package, which also doesn't seem to do anything (out of curiosity i enabled bluetooth on both my vista machine and my nokia 6300 - nokia PC suite recognised it and connected with it, which MS-vista struggled (and failed) to find appropriate drivers).

Hello!

Windows clock somehow manages to get out of sync even when the computer is up and running. For example, I now synced the clock and it went from about 12:17 to 14:05! Usually the difference is not so big, about 5-10 minutes. It also happens when I've set the time manually. And when I shut the computer down or put it to sleep, it resumes correctly (not entirely sure though as the time is constantly showing wrong results). When manually switching off the automatic sync and then turning it back on, the system receives the correct time from time.windows.com. Yet it isn't able to sync itself correctly automatically.

The motherboard is now about six years old - it feels that I might have to change its battery. Should I go forward with that or could the problem lie elsewhere?

Edit: During posting this question (about 10 minutes), the system lost 3 minutes! This forum showed the correct time, my system did not.

A:Clock "slows down", yet is able to manually sync correctly

It might well be that the CMOS battery is getting empty. Before you get a new one, you can also try the below procedure:

This issue can be caused by the Windows Time service being corrupt. You can try to take the following steps to troubleshoot this issue.

Run the following command in an elevated command prompt: net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
Then, please restart the computer to test the issue again.

If any error message was received when doing these steps, please let us know.

Hi everyone. I've wasted countless hours in the past several weeks trying to fix this, so hopefully someone will take pity on me and help:

WMP 11 will no longer convert AVI or MPEG files when I sync to my trusty ol' Toshiba Gigabeat S-30. When attempted it will say "Conversion status: 0%" for about five minutes without ever progressing, then just switch to "Error" and go to the next file. The error details simply say that WMP cannot convert the file to the format needed by the device, even though it USED to be able to. (It also stopped converting TiVo files, but I'm not as worried about that)

Whenever WMP starts converting a file I get an FFDSHOW pop-up asking if I want to use it this time, use it every time, not use it this time, or not use it ever again. I've tried using it "this time" and "not this time," but doesn't seem to make much difference.

For a while I had this annoying 3ivx "buy now" pop-up every time I tried to sync. Sometimes it would "error" on me during that period, but I could go to the Divx Decoder Configuration Utility, change ANY setting, and it would start working again (in other words, yes, I would "jiggle the handle"). Neither of these is happening anymore, but I thought I'd mention it for background.

A:Sync Toy "failed to create a provider"

Have you recently installed Samsung software (i.e., Samsung's "Kies") to sync a Samsung phone or tablet to your computer?

This sure sounds like your issue...
New error message? "Failed to create folder pair. Failed to create the provider."

The fix involved doing a repair on MicroSoft Sync Framework 2.0, as follows:
Go to "Configuration Panel" -> "Install / Remove Programs" -> "Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components" -> "Modify" -> "Repair"

Click to expand...

You may additionally need to repair the "Provider Services".

"Configuration Panel" -> "Install / Remove Programs" -> "Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Provider Services (x86) ENU" -> "Modify" -> "Repair"Click to expand...

For XP, I believe that would be - control panel > add remove programs > search for the components and... > click on change > and then repair.

For more information, consult the linked thread on the Microsoft forums, as I neither have a Samsung device nor do I have SyncToy currently installed here.

Perhaps someone here is directly familiar with the issue.

I ran the DDS and will attach the two file, but even with the gmer.exe I had to tell my computer to associate it with gmer.exe, the exact icon I clicked on

Mostly this is just a pain in the ***, but some stuff just simply wont run, help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Please look at the following picture:
Most of the folders that I work with on a regular basis contain files like this. However, as you can see, I usually sort all of my files by "type" in Windows 10 File Explorer so that it's easier for me to separate my files. However, I prefer it when even different types of files come in a certain order. As you can see, some of file types have already been modified in such a way. I have all of my Adobe Projects grouped together with 1), my audio files grouped with 2), my video files with 4), and so on. However, you may be wondering how I did this.

Well, I used this great program called "FileTypesMan," but it seems VERY outdated. And, unfortunately, it doesn't work for ALL file types. When I try to use the program to edit the "Type" of my PNG files to say "3) PNG Picture", it still always ends up as simply saying "PNG File," as can be seen in the picture above. I have the same issue with both .jpg and .jpeg files. I haven't bothered with XMP files yet, so ignore that.

Anyway, my question is this; is there any easier way to edit the "Type" of file for extensions? Is there a better program for Windows 10 than FileTypesMan? I've tried various registry edits but none of them seem to fix the problem even after I restart File Explorer.​ I just don't know what to do.

Hi, you could try Gunners File Type Editor. But FileTypesMan is more comprehensive.

I saw this thread and I decided to use the "gspot" as suggested, as my avi's get out of sync when I burn them, too. They are fine when I play them on my computer itself, however, when I try to burn them to my dvd's, the audio does not catch up to the video and I end up wasting a LOT of discs. However, I don't get this. I am running a file thru the "gspot", but I don't understand what it means. I am not as computer literate as all of you are. Please explain this to me. Here is a screenie:

Some time ago I had some files I tried to remove. Part of 1 did not go. Ever since I get this pop-up window - "sync.exe" when I start my computer. It also at times (not always) lists - PC fighter 1011964 - and/or "failed to load branding configuration" I have no idea if it is hurting my computer at all - it is just a bother. I use Windows 7 - never go near -
facebook/any social media/ebay - etc. do not play games. If you can help me wipe this out - I would appreciate it.
Thank you revrod2
 

A:remove "sync.exe"

Look for an entry or two for SLOW-PCfighter or similar in the Scheduled Tasks and delete this folder if you have it:

c:\program files\Fighters

Beyond that you need to start a new thread in the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum.

“The Process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process”

 
we have tried many times and confirm there's no one using those files but still same error
 
I found this article on forumbut not sure how much this valid to SBS 2011, and if it's known issue why not there's fix patch yet from Microsoft



On the 2003 server I had to ADD this reg entry and set it to 0:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MRXSmb\Parameters\
OplocksDisabled REG_DWORD 0 or 1
Default: 0 (not disabled)

And then Changed this entry to 1:

I am trying to use the fsutil file setshortname to set "Program Files" to PROGRA~1,

but the system is giving me an "Error: Access is denied" response.
what I have typed:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]
(c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
C:\Windows\system32>cd /d D:\
D:\>fsutil.exe 8dot3name set 0
The registry state is now: 0 (Enable 8dot3 name creation on all volumes).
D:\>fsutil file setshortname "Program Files" PROGRA~1
Error:  Access is denied.
And I try it in Safe Mode.It is also "Access is denied.".
Can someone
help me?

A:"fsutil file setshortname "Program Files" PROGRA~1"=>"Error:Access is denied."

Hi TimFF,
This might be related with the UAC settings, check this thread:
give full permission for the users in program
files folder
The steps in the above thread is not recommended.
For the short name usage, we may consider to create a directory-junction from
PROGRA~1 to C:\Program Files:
With the following commands:
mklink /J "C:\PROGRA~1" "C:\Program Files"
Reference:
Mklink

Hi all, 
can anyone tell me or point me to a source that will give me clarity on the question if the GTX960M in the XPS15 9550 does support NVidia G-Sync via the USB-C/TB3 Port? Of course I would need an adaptor from USB-C to DP if the Screen only supports DP as Input but the question here is about the G-Sync capability of the XPS15/the GTX960M. 
Thanks in adance
Regards

A:XPS15 9550 - NVidia G-Sync on External G-Sync Monitor

According to nVidia, the minimum GPU for G-sync is the GTX965m.
www.geforce.com/.../system-requirements
The notebook mainboard must also support G-sync  -- something I suspect the 9550 does not.

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

Hey everyone,
        I am trying to get the REST queries to work with the sharepoint end points instead of graph end points. I first created an app with relevant permissions and have given it the admin consent. Then I am hitting the https://login.microsoftonline.com/<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com/oauth2/token?Content-Type=application/x-www-form-urlencoded end
point with https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com as resource. I am then using the access token retrieved to give the rest call to https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com/_api/v2.0/drives/b!3indYSbqZ0-hVSPnCgIZy-2xDMh7jH9AuQnEzJMc6TEfQoSJvJT-R6tT0lFBQiPr/root/delta
but it is failing with "error":{"code":"generalException","message":"General exception while processing"}}. The REST response code is 401 Unauthorized. I have filed a Microsoft support ticket but they
have asked me to post on these forms. Can someone please help me with this? I am not able to move forward because the error is pretty generic and doesn't give any additional details.

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.
