Hi guys,
I built a site in FP2002 on a winME pc it has run sweet for 4 years.

six months ago i moved to FP2003 running on a XP machine.

The server has always been the same windows NT server.

Every time i publish a popup window now tells me there is conflict with files named directory/thumbs.db no matter what i tell it to do ...overwrite etc the server conection times out. If i just publish the page i want it all works.

Is there a way to stop fronpage from trying to publish the thumbs.db file?

Might be worth publishing live by going to the site and selecting 'edit with FrontPage' rather than the usual publishing method. This might resolve the conflict.
