SyncToy command line option RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using synctoy 2.1 x64 on Windows 7. I have configured to run the tool as scheduled task using command

    <PATH>\SyncToyCmd.exe -R

    So the trigger was activated and the command line tool has started but I am not sure if it is working properly or if it is stuck or some error is there.

    Is there any log file available for this.

    Thanks,

  • Strange I just got only following lines in the log file with no additional information

    SYNC: 11/29/2009 20:47:06:083: -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SYNC: 11/29/2009 20:47:06:129: Starting SyncToy, version 2.1.0.0, built 19/10/2009 4:04:38 AM.

    SYNC: 11/30/2009 01:48:52:192: Stopped scanning directory : X:\

    This is second round of run for X:\  and K:\ on the same directory that I synchronized last week.

    I also have more then one rule for synchronization. I think the 2nd synchronization is running at this time but not sure as there is no activity in the log file but I do see my USB drive being accessed.

  • Ok looks like I need to be very patient with 3 TB of files :-)

    It just gave me this message

    SYNC: 11/29/2009 20:47:06:083: -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SyncToy action was 'Synchronize'
    Found 59608 actions to perform.
    Found 482,100 files that did not require action.
    Analyzed 6.3 files per second.
    Avoided copying 3,708,843,207,056 bytes in 482,100 files.
    Saved approximately 20:28:06:00 by not copying any files.

    So it was more of me waiting for 21 hours to get the result

    Cheers,
