Errors running Synctoy to NAS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been running synctoy for several years and several versions and though I've read about errors to NAS attached storage i'd never experienced one. I have 8 data sets defined and I run them explicitly e.g. not from command line or script. 7 of the 8 data sets still run as expected. The 8th and largest is my photo archive and within the past several weeks every time I try to run that specific data set every operation fails and when it has completed I cannot write to the NAS any more until I reboot it. The NAS is a MicroTek Platinum NAS running in RAID 5 mode. All file systems are NTFS. The O/S is Windows XP. Any ideas welcome

  • I have it working as expected now! Apparently that data set was generating so many operations that it was overrunning a resource. Anyway I copied much of the new data manually and than attempted to run synctoy on the remainder. That operation completed successfully so my backup and my system data are consistent again. That's a relief! Tom
