*** Error: Cannot write to the destination file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm running synctoy 2.1 on my Win7 64 bit laptop and syncing my documents to my Win7 32 bit laptop. I'm running in Echo mode and have deleted a file on my Win 7 64 bit but get the error below when syncing to my Win 7 32 bit. Any ideas or suggestions. My settings are exclude hidden files, exclude system files, active for run all and save overwritten file in recycle bin.

    SYNC: 05/17/2010 11:50:09:017: SyncToy run of My Documents (C:\Users\tomdec\Documents\, \\TOM-PC\Users\Tom\Documents\) completed at 5/17/2010 11:50:09 AM.
    SyncToy action was 'Echo'.
    SyncToy options were:
     Active for run all
     All files included
     No files excluded
     Check file contents
     Include read-only files
     Do not include hidden files
     Do not include system files
     Backup older files (send to Recycle Bin)
     Some subfolders included

    You can retry by selecting "Run" again or select "Preview" to see

  • Some thoughts:

    1. Is it possible the file is in use on the Laptop?

    2. Is the file name the same as a folder name?

    3. Is the file in a different folder to the other files? if so is this folder is shared with read and write access (I presume the others are as some files were copied)

    4. Are any flags set for the file on the laptop (read only for example).
