I am using a portable HD to move from various locations for work. I have the following setup:
1) Office computer (Win 7 32 bits): Use VV to Sync files on portable drive
2) Laptop computer (Win 7 64 bits): work on files from portable drive when travelling
3) Home computer (Win 7 64 bits): work on files from portable drive & Sync home files on portable drive

Problem: When I create a file from systems 1 & 2 on the portable drive, Sync wont occur due to some rights linked to the file's Creator that are different from WinXP where all this was seamless. In Win 7, I have to Aquire the right to every file I created on another computer in order to use VV. If I attempt to move a file to a different location on the portable drive it won't let me saying I don't have the rights to it. If I appropriate the rights to do it then I have problems with VV when I attempt to resync on the Source drive (Office computer). None of these issues existed in Win XP.

The files seem to have "read and execute" rights but I can't save over the original file and thus am stuck having to have a second copy of the file in the same place. It won't let me erase or move a file unless I am on the computer that I created it on; where it shows the very long windows user KEY (in other words the Owner) in the mesage box.

I have not been able to figure out how to get my files to be an "EVERYONE" can manipulate which would return all functions to VV on every computer. It does not seem to be Win 7 version related.

Any thought or ideas?

Hi, it's most probably a permission issue on the drive, maybe this helps:
