Zero Files Synchronised RRS feed

  • Question

  • Vista SP2
    Synctoy 2.0 Aug 2008

    Wanted to synchronise 15,076 files on a hard disk to a new external hard drive.
    Both NTFS and SATA.
    Preview showed all files correctly as expected.
    Run  - only copies over folders, but not files.
    Tried again - no files copied. Each File had an Error: Unknown Error- Access Denied.

    Reinstalled Synctoy 1.4 and same synchronisation went ahead and completed without any problem.

    (For information; There are some errors in the Help where both Left and Right folders are described as source.
    The Error page after a Run has the wrong pop-up tags when mouse hovering over an item.)

  • You can have a try, obviously this error caused by some file access restriction. If the restriction came from UAC setting, your problem will be resolved.

  • Have you had your UAC turned off? Could you copy those files manually?

    UAC was turned on.

    Would there not be an error message if it was turned off?

    Files do copy manually and, as stated, Synctoy 1.4 copied all files over without a problem.
