  • Hi Chris,

    Some more info would help here:
    - Are you able to sync between (to and fro) home and work laptops without encryption ? If so, it maybe something to do with your company's IT policy - can you check with them ?
    - When you mentioned you can sync using your home laptopn - was it with another (non-work) computer or within the home laptop itself with both endpoints within the home laptop ?

    Per say, SyncToy does not deal with encryption directly. Encryption occurs on destination file/folder when contents are being copied (sync'ed) and is an act of local file system as against SyncToy's.

    Hope this helps,
