I'm having a problem where multiple clients will have different numbers of contacts in a category on the server. The program says that it is synced up, but the amount will vary usually somewhere in the +- 20 range.

First, how is this possible? If it's a server category, and it's synced, shouldn't everyone have the same amount of contacts in that category? Is there a way to force the clients and server to compare their databases?

Also, recently someone must have merged or deleted 200 contacts. One of the clients kept the offending 200 contacts, just in case. We want to get these 200 back onto the server. How do we figure out which 200? This seems to me to be almost the same issue as the first, just that we probably have a reason for the different amounts of contacts, as opposed to no discernible reason.

Thanks very much for any ideas or suggestions, Ian
