Syntax Error When Synchronizing *.msg files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running SyncToy 2.1, version

    When synchronizing folders that contain Outlook messages saves as *.msg files, I recieve the message "Error: Cannot write to the destination file. The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007B)..."

    If I modify the synchronization settings to exclude *.msg files, the synchronization runs without errors.

    I have browsed this SyncToy support forum and haven't found any posts that relate to this error.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • I know it's a long shot but I had this error message when trying to write files from a local drive to a mapped SharePoint location. The problem came down to the name I'd used when I mapped the SharePoint library. I'd mapped it as something like this:

    Z: --> \\intranet\myteams\erp\Shared%20Documents

    and kept hitting this issue. However, when I mapped it like this:

    Z: --> \\intranet\myteams\erp\Shared Documents

    it worked.
