Renamed folders are not deleted RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was hoping that Synctoy 2 had fixed this problem.

    If I rename a folder and use the ECHO backup function, a folder with the old folder name is still there (together with the correctly named new folder and all the files). This makes a mess of the backup folders.

    Is there a way of fixing this?

  • Jim, this is supposed to work with SyncToy 2.0. We investigated your issue and looks like you may have changed a folder pair that was previously marked as "Synchronize" to "Echo". In that case we see this behavior. If you delete the folder pair and re-create it with Echo as the starting option, you should get the correct behavior. Can you please try that out and let us know how it works?
