Error message when using SyncToy. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using SyncToy for several years (it was set up by a computer savvy friend) so I could do a monthly back-up on my laptop. It has never failed to work perfectly until this month, when I got the following error message. Error: Cannot read from the source file System Volume Information\. Access is denied. (Exeception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

    I know how to do what I need to do to work the basic programs that I use, but I am by no means tech savvy and I could use some help with this.

    Thank you in advance!

  • I too have loved and now miss this app. Did anyone answer and fix?
