Number of files does not match RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed SyncToy and ran it for the first time to backup to my external hard drive, which I also just installed. All of my folder pairs are set to Contribute. After the sync completed I compared the number of files on both the left and right sides, and none of the folders have the same number of files. The right side always has fewer files. I am using Windows Explorer to compare the number of files. Why don't the left and right sides match? Are my backups reliable?

  • There are some exclude/include options for read only/hidden/system files, should be included/excluded. Could you have a check, if they  were selected?
