I am using a trail version of Dreamweaver 8 on Windows Vista. I have recently moved my website files from another computer and installed Dreamweaver 8 (previously these content files were used by DW CS3).
After editing a template, updating its associated files, how can I select only those files for updating?

I have tried a few methods unsuccessfully. I have verified when I save the template files, the associated files are being updated on my machine. Now I just need to get them on the server:

1. When I try right click in files empty space, select, recently modified files I check on Files Created or Modified in the Last: 1 Day and I receive this error:

“While executing onClick in SelectRecentlyModified.html, a JavaScript error occurred.”

If I change to Files Created or Modified between dates, it only provides years 2002 to 2008 (not 2009)!

2. I have also tried: Modify, templates, Update pages

Look in: Files that Use, name of template
Update: (Templates checked)
Show log checked.

I click done and no files are updated:
Updating C:\Users\******\Documents\websites\******\
files examined: 55
files updated: 0
files which could not be updated: 0
total time: (0:00:00)

3. I have used synchronized, however at 15 minutes into this it is checking files to see if they are newer. I am ot sure how long this takes but there must be another faster method?

Any other methods to only update files I modified when I updated a template?
