Errors backing up Windows Media files. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Wanted to use SyncToy to backup an extensive windows media player music library on a NAS.  I was backing the files up to another NAS using SyncToy installed on my networked PC.  Initially it worked fine.  But as I added more music files to the primary NAS, SyncToy began to get squirrelly.  It said it was going to delete certain files, and I assumed (don't say it!!) those were files that had been updated by windows media player (it is constantly updating the library info). Checking the secondary NAS, I found folders that didn't contain the music files, only the jpg. gif's for the album.  I have over 60 Gb of mp3 music.  It's quite a job checking each folder!  Does anyone have any insight on this problem?   Any help would be appreciated!
