  • Of course *NO*, you can have a try, SyncToy will show the error info when you want to use %parameter% as part of syncToy folder path.

    My suggestion is try to do the operations combined with scripts, as syncToy support command way to create folder pairs and sync folder pairs. You can run those script to replace the parameters with certain value, that may make things much simple.

  • If you just want to modify the log setting, yes, as the config file locates at program install path. Of course it is suit for all of the logging user.

  • So is it possible to create new folder pair with C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Desktop and say  \\NetworkShare\%USERNAME%\Desktop

  • what do you want to achieve here ? config syncToy so everyone can use it ? or you want to "dynamically" load the current users' env so that syncToy can perform based on the current user ? if this is true. then Ping has the right suggestions above.

    thanks
