SyncToy 2.1(x64) Error: **File already exists** RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using SyncToy 2.1(x64) on Win 7(x64) to sync with a WebDAV-folder i am constantly receiving errors.

    First I start the preview, and it shows that it has to copy some files (operation: NEW). But these files already exist! The Target path is C:\... (local harddrive).

    Consequently, I get the following errors during the operation:

    Error. Cannot write to destionation file. File already exists... HRESULT: 0x800700B7

    Any ideas how to handle this?

  • Try reversing your sync and previewing it and seeing what happens. It does look like for some reason the files on your local hard drive are not being picked up by SyncToy when examining the drive.
