Error Message/Cannot read from the source file system volume information RRS feed

  • Question

  • After I run a sync process in Echo mode, the error message says: Cannot read from the source file system volume information\. Access is denied.

    Otherwise the sync process seems to be working, in that files deleted on left are deleted on the right, etc.

    How much of a problem is this? How do I avoid causing this error?

  • To sync with any version of SyncToy, you should make sure that SyncToy have enough permission to access the left folder and right folder. If this issue comes again, try if running SyncToy as Administrator can resolve your issue.
