Run SyncToy 2 on shutdown for Windows7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to have SyncToy2 run on shutdown on Windows7, is this possible ? Someone wrote that they got it to do this on Vista but it did not wait for the sync to finish before shutdown, they had to write a special VB script. I'd really like it to run similar to the update installs that happen during shutdown.

  • Do not need VB script, just a DOS bath file is fine.

    1. create sync pairs with Synctoy UI, and closed UI.
    2. creat a batch file named as "shutd.cmd" in synctoy install folder such as "c:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.0"
    3. batch file contents as below:
    synctoycmd -R
    shutdown -s

    4. run batch file "shutd.cmd", machine will be auto shutdown after sync done.

    I have tried and it works fine on XP. hope you like it.:)
