Reparse points skipped by SyncToy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have some work folder backed up by SyncToy. In this folder I have two reparse points (links to folders) to folders on another disks. When I run SyncToy, it ignores these reparse points even if they seems like regular folders. And it won't display them in Select Subfolder dialog. Is any vay to disable this behavor and make SyncToy to backup folders linked by reparse points?

  • Hi -

    Sorry - currently SyncToy will skip all reparse points. We do not have any current plans to change this behaviour.

    Thanks

  • Hmmm... Mayby it's beter to add one checkbox to optionally enable it ("Threat reparse points as regular folders") or hide key in registry for these who really need it (like me)? ^^
