'Rename A Folder Pair' and Delete A Folder Pair' are greyed out RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently installed SyncToy 2.0 running on XP SP3.

    I cannot rename a folder pair I have created as the rename and delete options are greyed out.

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

  • Hi Lave,

    On the left panel, you should see all the folder pair listed. For example, I have two folder pairs (Sync01, Sync01) created, then on the left panel, the following list should show:

    -----------
    Sync01
    Sync02
    All Folder Pairs
    -----------

    If you can only see "All Folder Pairs" and there isn't any folder pair shown in the right panel, it means there was no folder pair created.

    On the other hand, do you know SyncToy2.1 was just released last month. I strongly recommend you try it out:

  • Furthermore suggestion is, maybe you just need to click on one folder you will see these two buttons are enabled. Such as in Nina 's example, you just click on Sync01, SyncToy will show some specific info for this folder pairs and you can rename it or delete it. 

    -----------
    Sync01
    Sync02
    All Folder Pairs
    -----------

    Thanks,
