  • Hi -

    I am guessing that your USB disk is a FAT drive. If that is the case we are unable to detect that the times are the same accurately and in this case we opt to just synchronize the files.

  • Hi, firstly thank you for reporting this.
    But as while syncToy 2.0 running, it use some attribute such as file create/modify datetime etc to decide if they are different or not, so even the file content is same, but the modified datetime may diff, so it will run sync action.
    Hope this info help.
    Thanks Ping
