Synctoy copies only folders but none of the files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Synctoy echo to copy files from my desktop to my laptop. My desktop is Vista. My laptop is Windows 7. It recognizes the files, creates a "to do" list. It runs for quite a while. However, when the program completes no files are copied. Every folder, subfolder, sub-sub folder, etc is there. but they are empty. Has anyone else had/solved this problem? Thanks,

  • I have the same problem.
    I tried it a few times but everytime only the folders are copied and not the files in the folder.
    I wanted to synchronise a directory on my pc with a directory on a network drive.
    This is the last part of the log:

    SyncToy action was 'Echo'.
