If anyone is familiar with the program Allway sync, I could use some advice.
I am having this problem on a windows 7 machine, but not on any windows XP machines...
I have Allway sync set up to backup the filepath C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook, which is a folder containing the MS outlook .pst files.
Allway sync cannot perform a synchronization with outlook open (which is expected, and not a problem).
However, if Allway sync is running (jobs are not stopped/paused), and I go to run outlook, it will not open and I get an error message saying that another program is using file content and is blocking outlook from accesing it, so it cannot open.
I may just have to disable Allway sync when I want to use outlook, but this would be dissapointing since Allway sync is supposed to be an opperator free program.
Any advice would be appreciated.
