Looking for changes message ,sync never completes synctoy v2.1

    General discussion

  • We are using Synctoy as a backup option to sync files between a NAS storage and a windows server.NAS has folders(DFS shares, home and group shares) and I have installed synctoy on the windows server and has locally attached disks for backing up the data.

    The home and group shares are mapped as a network drive and the folders are visible beneath them.

    When I run synctoy and select S drive as the source(mapped drive) and a  folder under(I created a folder called backup) local drive as target and sync choosing the option “echo” or “contribute”, it never completes, and looks like stuck at about 95% mark. continually scanning.

    The message is “looking for changes”.

    On the other hand if I do a mapping of folders(one to one) it works and sync completes. But I have 1000 folders, so I cannot create all of them on target manually.
