SyncToy 2.1 problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Like some other people, I've been having problems with SyncToy 2.1. I did an upgrade to Windows 7 a couple of days ago. SyncToy 2.0 ran fine and synchronised my folder pairs. I read about the NAS problem though, so I upgraded to Synctoy 2.1. When running an update, it hangs horribly and I have to kill the process. I tried going back down to Synctoy 2.0 but I now have the same problem.

    Any ideas what has gone wrong?

  • Hi,
        You said when running an update, do you mean upgrade to synctoy v2.1?

  • Sorry, my message was very vague - I think it was too early in the morning for me. What I meant to say was that SyncToy hangs when I try and run a synchronisation. The "upgrade" to Synctoy 2.1 has completely killed the program on my PC - even going back to SyncToy 2.0 doesn't help now - every time I run a synchronisation, the program just hangs.

  • I use a program to file synchronization, which is called File Sync. Auto file and folder sync software ( is a necessary thing for everybody. That is why I use this program and haven't such problems. Did you use it? What are the differences among these programs?

  • Maybe you can uninstall SyncToy2.0 and 2.1 from your computer, and install 2.1 again. Remember to uninstall MSF2.0 Provider and Core Components when you uninstall the SyncToy. Good luck!
