SyncToy 2.1 lost files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using FileCenter to save scanned documents.  Then I would use SyncToy 2.1 to sync the File Center folders to a Toshiba SSD.  Tonight I got this error message:

    "SyncToy.exe - Delayed Write Failed

    "Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \Portable Backup from Home PC\[name]\File Center\FSPCAAD05928644AF6815FA97984550514.tmp; the data has been lost.  This error may be caused if the device has been removed or the media is write-protected."

    The only data remaining in the copy of FileCenter on the SSD are two files I scanned tonight. Worse, it is the same on my main computer hard drive.  No data for the last five years which I have scanned, except for the two files scanned tonight.  Is it possible to retrieve this data from somewhere?

    Thx.  If you want to email me directly, use spaine@pdq.net
