SyncToy Run All only syncs first pair RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've set up 2 pairs in ST (current version downloaded 25 Jan-no prev. version) on Windows 7. (OS is up to date)

    1. folder on C paired with folder on external HD

    2. folder on C paired with Flash Drive (top level and flash drive is always inserted in same slot)

    When I select Run all with both pairs checked, ST syncs the first pair but not the second.

    If I then immediately run it again, it syncs the second pair.

    I've already tried making the second pair be ext. HD folder paired with flash drive (no different result)

    There are no error messages. And permissions are set correctly for the flash drive.

    The OS sees my flash drive as "Red-4G (L:)" but in selecting folder in ST, flash drive is only listed as L:

    Any ideas?

  • Does this happen every time you click on Run All?

    Regarding ST listing your drive as L: and the OS as "Red-4G (L:)", this is no problem, SyncToy is displaying only the drive letter of your flash drive, and windows 7 is displaying the name given to your flash drive plus the drive letter.

    Are the folders in C in the two different pairs the same?
