Reseting a folder pair RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have a folder pair that does a Contribute. I have messed with the contents of the target folder and want to start the pair from scratch but without deleting the synctoy job. In the old (beta) version I would just delete the synctoy system file from each folder and run the job again and it would start as though it had never run before. However with the latest version, this does not seem to work. It still seems to know where it was up to despite asking me if I want to start again because the endpoint does not exist.

    Does anyone know how to make it start afresh?

  • Hi IanSL,

    Sync toy uses %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\SyncToy\2.0\ on Vista and Windows 7 and %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\SyncToy\2.0\"  on Windows XP. In your scenario, please take a backup of the target folder file which is created by Sync toy  from above mentioned location and delete it, re-run the job.
