One or more items in the folder you synchronized do not match Outlook : Fix

Whenever Microsoft Outlook finds a disparity between the copy of a locally stored file/event and the one saved in the cloud, it shows this long statement “One or more items in the folder you synchronized do not match. To resolve the conflicts, open the items and then try this operation again.” on your screen. Solving this issue is easier than other Outlook bugs. So, without wasting any more time, go through these solutions to fix the problem.

Fix 1 – Log in to the Outlook on web

You must check whether the event is updated/canceled by logging OWA in the Outlook web.

Step 1 – Go to your preferred browser and get to the Outlook.

Step 2 – Log into your account using the MS Office credentials.

Step 3 – Once you are in there, go to the “Calendar” tab.

The online version will show you the actual status of the events. If there are any updates to the meeting/event, it will be showcased there.

You can adjust the event from there if you want.


Fix 2 – Clear the Offline items

The conflict is between the offline items and the files saved on the server. So, if you clear the offline items from the Calendar settings in Outlook, it should fix that.

Step 1 – While you are in the Outlook page, go to the “Calendar” tab.

Step 2 – There, right-click the “Calendar” folder in there.

Step 3 – Choose to open up the “Properties” from the context menu.
