After creating a windows briefcase i got a regular folder containing a single file (this is the only thing that make it different from regular folder creation), i mean it looks exactly like a regular folder from the inside and i don't see anywhere any special menu that say it is not a regular folder. More than that it looks like a folder from the out (briefcase on desktop, looking on desktop), and not like a case at all !

I am not sure what can be the cause of the problem, i need the briefcase so bad since have to update folders on my working PC and i need an easy update for the backup on an external HD (or possibly usbs...), so any clue, any help of any kind, even a link for some other site that may help is appreciated.
Of course if someone can solve this for me, hehe, i'll be so much greatefull for him ...

I already posted this on other forums including microsoft newsgroups, and no one was able to help, i hope i get something in here since this is my first post here !

Thanks in advance

Hello mediumkuriboh and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Nope but i tried it now, and it didn't help me, my briefcase is not a briefcase, it is just a regular folder called new briefcase, there is no update all or any other menu related to briefcase. i wonder if it is something related to shell extensions, something missing on my pc. anyway, if i can't solve this problem, is there an alternative solution, an external tool or maybe something that integrate with windows in some way, and provides the synchronization of a briefcase,

thanks

In Windows Explorer I just clicked File > New > Briefcase and a folder was created called "New Briefcase". If I then click on this "New Briefcase" I get a new menu item at the top next to "Tools" which is called "Briefcase". I assume the same is not happening for you?

Exactly i create a new briefcase, i got only a folder named new briefcase, nothing change in the menus in the top, by the way i installed my PC using a modified XP installation CD (nlite) to add some divers needed for my laptop. could this be the cause of the problem ?

Thanks

Wow, what i suspected was right, the cause was nlite, i tried the same XP installation made by nlite had exactly same problem, more than this i checked the add remove windows components, and there is no briefcase option to install or uninstall available ! i guess it is nlite removing the briefcase from the installation. In fact, i got before some problem in the add remove components while trying to install iis, the problem was caused by nlite making a special installation file for itself nlite.inf (instead of sysoc.inf) included in windows/inf hidden folder. so i guess i should search for a way to get the original file from somewhere maybe some pc not messed with nlite, i am not sure if this might work, does this happen with you before ?
