SyncToy 2.1 x64 Error Messages RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a laptop running Vista x64.

    I acquired a 2 Tb Western Digital Worldbook for backing up files from laptop and other computers. I have been using the WD Worlsbook for a couple of months and have been syncing / backing up laptop to Worldbook via manual "Drag and Drop" of directories and files. Its a manual process but it works.

    I wanted to automate my sync / backup process and recently downloaded SyncToy 2.1 x64 and installed with no problems.

    I did several small sync(s) (5 - 10 Gb) with no problems.

    I then attempted to sync my laptop music collection with the backup collection on the Worldbook. I set up to pairing like I did with all other Syncs I performed and hit "RUN". SyncToy ran just as it always has and then hangs up with the follwing error messages:

         Exception during run: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

         Exception during run: The FileSyncProvider received an unexpected error while writing a change. Updating file *\*\*\  

    What are these error messages? What can I do to fix these error messages?

    Any ideas?

  • I have seen an issue with synctoy where it will fail if either file system is FAT. Are your source and destination disks both NTFS?

  • Can you copy the complete error details from the sync log.  This can be found by opening SyncToy, going to the File menu and click on SyncToy Log.

  • We're experiencing the same problem nearly 7 years later and revel in the tech support response above: send us and error log - and get lost. This kind of technical support is insulting. Cheers
