Sync Toy as a scheduled task RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using synctoy 2.1 on winxp pro sp3.

    I use the following command in a scheduled task "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\SyncToyCmd.exe -R"

    The process appears to run normal and does not give any error messages. Once I check the files on the right folder they don't seem to update any new folders or files that were not in the original sync done by the gui. If I run synctoy from the gui it does a proper echo sync from left folder pair to right folder pair.

    Any ideas why all files and folders aren't beinging synced when using command line instead of the gui?

  • After the "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\SyncToyCmd.exe -R" you need to put the name of the folder pair you want to run. IE "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\SyncToyCmd.exe -R My Documents"

  • I dont have the folder pair in the task because i want it to run multiple pairs of folders. If leave it as -R it will run all active folder pairs that are set up.
