Error metadata RRS feed

  • Question

  • When Synchronicing two folders on the same harddisk I recive suddenly following error message:

    "Exception during preview: The metadata store item could not be saved as it does not have a unique ID (or other primary key)."

    To synchronice the same folder to an network drive works still fine.

    Win 7 64 bit.

  • You can have a try to sync this folder pairs with SyncToy UI first. If this problem still could not be resolved , could you re-create this folder pairs, then try to sync again?

     

    Thanks,

  • Thank you,

    re-creating folder pair worked.

  • I had the same error: "Exception during preview: The metadata store item could not be saved as it does not have a unique ID (or other primary key).".

    I found that too many files in a folder can cause this which it did in my case. I slit the offending folder into thirds and now it synced properly.
