SyncToy to Windows 7 machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've been a user of SyncToy for many years now - and its always worked fine between my Vista laptop and 32 bit XP desktop.

    Now I just upgraded to 64 bit Windows 7 and I get this message every time I preview one of my Folder Pairs:
    Exception during preview: Analyzing the files has failed due to an intermittent failure. Please retry the sync.

    It happens over and over - but I note at different stages.  The folders used to sync fine - and I'm not knowingly running anything on either machine that could be accessing the files.  I can also mount the directory on my laptop and copy and paste files into it so I dont think it is a permission problem.

    I am running:
    Windows Visa Home Premium x32
    SyncToy 2.1
    I am attempting to sync to Windows 7 x 64

     Any advice would be hugely appreciated.
