WinLDS is like WinStat: if you “disconnect” it will keep your session running.  A hard “Sign Out” can often help prevent problems associated with an open session.

If you try to silosync a file with the same name as an existing file in your receiving silosync directory, it will not work. It will not overwrite a file with a newer version of the same name.

WinLDS has regularly scheduled downtime during the morning on the first Wednesday of each month.
