SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You have configured offline file folders on a computer that is running Windows Vista. At the same time that offline files are synchronized, the Windows Vista-based computer switches to suspend mode. Later, you try to synchronize offline files.

In this scenario, the operation to synchronize offline files appears to succeed. For example, the file metadata, such as file size, timestamp, and other metadata is identical. However, the files on the server are corrupted, and the file contents are randomly different.
