Synctoy skipping files in use RRS feed

  • Question


    When running synctoy it's skipping the files which are open and in use for e.g. Outlook's .pst file. It's not even giving an error or logging it so that we can take necessary actions. In the log file it's just saying Copied. Now how do we get to know which file is copied and which one not as a result of locked files like in the case of outlook .pst file.

  • Arjun, are you running SyncToy as a background task or using the UI? We do show skipped file errors in the UI whenever we're not able to read or write a file. Also, we don't recommend syncing Outlook .pst or .ost files when they are in use because SyncToy will not be able to access them.
