I just installed your syncdocs and it seems great.
I use Gdocs possibility to synchronize office files and then I would like to manage them with Syncdocs on multiple PC's. The problem is that the files downloaded from Gdocs are mainly without extensions, and difficult to manage.
I think that this is related to Office 2007/2010 file versions, but is there a way to download them at least in 2003 format with the proper extension?

Google docs files should come down with extensions by default. So a Google Document is converted to .doc or .odt and so on depending on your settings.
What is an example filename of a Google document that comes down without an extension?
Probably I did not explain correctly the problem.
I have already in Gdocs some Office files (2007/2010) like .docs or .xlsx, NOT converted to Gdocs documents.
They were uploaded using the sync app that is coming with Gdocs, that installs a sync button in the office files. You just press the button and the file is synchronized to Gdocs.
Now, as I started to use syncdocs, these files were downloaded to the mygoogle docs folder. These files come without extension. While if I upload the same file using the upload feature IN Gdocs the the file appears in the local folder correctly. Hope it is clearer now. Probably is a bug in the sync Gdoc button feature.
Thanks for the extra info.
Do these files have an extension if you look at their names in Google Docs in the web-browser?
no they do not show any extension.
