Windows Server Share and Storage Management

Recommended Posts


I'm new in this forum and I'm Portuguese, so maybe my English isn't the most correct.

I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and I've a problem with some AD users in Windows 7, that some times cannot change folders name, move or delete some folder/files because those are in use by other program.

This users have their documents sync with the server to a directory with the name of the user and full control in their folder.

When they report the problem, I go to the server - Share and storage management - manage sessions and close the session or session of the user in the server. By doing this action, the user can do what he want to do.

I'm looking for a way to prevent this from happening or a explanation or cause that justifies this behavior of windows.

Thank you for helping!

Welcome to the WF.

You cannot have it both ways: you (or your users) either have sync active, which will lock the synched folders and files, or have sync off, which will allow your users to freely rename, move, or delete files and folders. It's one of nature's laws that cannot be changed.

Check out Technet Forums

There is of course no reason whatsoever that you should take my advice, apart perhaps from the argument that I am a highly intelligent and educated prat who studied logical thought and lateral thinking at Nightschool for many, many, mornings and afternoons over the past five years. (There is a joke in there somewhere, you've just got to find it. - Could be hard to translate into Portuguese though :( )

Logically ? -

-You start searching at source. - i.e - A Microsoft Technet Forum. - Seemples.
