Shadow copy and itunes RRS feed

  • Question

  • When syncing "My Music" folder while iTunes is open, I get the following error below.  I thought that SyncToy uses Shadow Copy?  I often leave iTunes running at night, which is also time daily backup is scheduled.

    Error (from Log):

    *** Error: Cannot read from the source file d:\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Library Extras.itdb. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020) Copying d:\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Library Extras.itdb to Y:\Backups - Daily\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Library Extras.itdb

  • HI Malathan,

    Synctoy cannot sync READ LOCK files, there are 2 options:

    1) Close itunes before sync

    2) exclude files - Extras.itdb in synctoy, and then sync.
