  • For what it's worth, I personally think the NAS corruption issue warrants more attention and and should be patched as quickly as possible, since it is, after all, a bug and potentially could cause a serious loss of important data -- especially for instance if SyncToy is being used to make backups -- something I believe is fairly common.

  • I completely agree with Martin. I am seriously hadicapped by not having SyncToy available to back up my laptop to my NAS. I am having to do backups "manually" (i.e., with file copy), which is dangerous as I am sure I occasionally miss a changed file. And, the process is tedious.

    I cannot understand why Microsoft refuses to make SyncToy 1.2 available while they are fixing version 2.0. When Windows Vista was found to have serious problems, Microsoft extended the life of Windows XP and many OEMs provided a downgrade path. It seems that a similar approach should be taken for SyncToy.
