Today I was helping out on a RES Workspace Manager project and we had some problems during the folder sync in WM. After some investigation we saw the following errors in the eventlogs:
Error: Folder sync exe failed with exit code: 10
Error: The metadata store replica is already in use.
We did set the following configuration:
After searching on the RES Software knowledge base I couldn’t find a solution (first time btw) so I went on the interwebs and searched on Google. I found the following article on Microsoft.Synchronization.MetadataStorage Namespace. It uses *.id file to store metadata and if it gets corrupt it won’t copy the files anymore.
The solution to our problem was deleting the *.id files once to get the folder sync started.

Thanx for the article, glad to see your the first hit on Google for this subject.
It’s good to mention this file exists on both the local and remote folder specified in the synchronisation job.
Also, don’t make the same mistake as I did. If both the source and destination point to the same folder you’ll receive the same error. I assume a drive-letter was a network drive (home drive) but in fact was a subst to the local folder.
