Sync folders with two USB disks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    For backup purposes I have two USB disks. One is allways in my safe deposit box at the bank, and the other at home.
    The plan was then to use SyncToy 2.0 to sync all my folders on a regular basis to the disk at home, and then go to the bank and swap.

    The sync to the first disk went well - offcause, but when I tried to sync with the other disk (same drive letters) it just tels me there's nothing to sync. Does SyncToy not support this in any way?

  • Hi -

    I am guessing that you have the synchronize option set to "Echo" to the same drive letter. The only way to do it in this case would be to set them up as different drive letters so that they changes flow to each disk independently.
