    ifolder only synchronises on login

    I have ifolder client 2.1.3. installed on several WinXPPro machines,
    accessing the same ifolder.

    On one PC, and one only, despite several reinstalls and reboots, it refuses
    to synchronise except on login. After that nothing, even if I press the
    Sync now button. This causes serious problems with my mail folders.

    I am admin on all these machines, but not on the ifolder server. Symc
    delays have been configured by the admin, and disabled for me.

    Any suggestions?

    And the same user account syncs OK to another PC?

    Perfectly. This is why I am completely puzzled by it. Just had to do it
    again.

    Must be something on that PC then. Tried wiping the local profile?

    I did, and it made no difference.

    HOWEVER, the only thing that was different about this installation (because
    it was a newly installed computer) was the fact that my Docs directory, in
    which the ifolder directory was located, is actually a separate partition,
    mounted as a directory on my C: drive. So I tried moving moving the
    ifolder directory directly onto C: and it works fine now.

    So, in addition to ifolder not working on network drives, it also doesn't
    support mounted drives/partitions mounted as directories.

    You learn something new every day!

    Ah. Never tried that. Good to know.

    Thanks for letting us know. Too bad iFolder is so limited in this way.
