    can you look at the log (File -> View Log) and see if there is anything that will help explain why it fails?

  • can you check if copying succeeds if you try to copy manually either through explorer or using a command window? or do you see this error only with synctoy?


    i would also try to run synctoy elevated to see if this still happens.

    I found a solution


    When you use synctoy for the first time there must be an equal situation between the source map on D: and the target map on L:


    However the program is not perfect, files are not checked completly.


    When I have a new file in D: with a higher Kbps and I have removed in D: the lower Kbps file in another root, the new file is create in L: but the lower Kbps file in another root is not removed from L:


    I think the program does not look at the roots info.


    I want to thank you for your interest in my problem.
