SyncToy 2.1 on Windows 10 is failing to sync some files!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks.

    I am a long time user of SyncToy.  I love how it keeps my files in sync between my hard drive and my external backup drive.  I run it once a month, ever month.  But now, a new install of Windows 10 and SyncToy 2.1, and when I do my sync, I am getting a list of files failed to sync over.  Then have to run the sync again in order to get it complete.  With some of the sync folders being very large, syncing takes time to check everything and having to do it twice to capture un-synced files, is both bothersome and alarming that SyncToy is now for some reason missing files!!

    How stable is this software on Windows 10?  Any idea if a newer up to date version will be released?  If SyncToy is unreliable now, I'll have to stop using it and find an alternative way to backup my files.

  • Same here ... long time user ... finding that sync toy is skipping files and folders. Frustrating! Loved this program but unfortunately, it is no longer reliable. Looking for another sync solution.
