Trouble usiing SyncToy over home wireless network RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using SyncToy ( ver. for years now, backing up important work files to a flash drive, and to an external hard drive connected through my home wireless network.

    Within the last two months, when I back up to the external hard drive (over the wireless network) I get several errors, and access denied messages.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled SyncToy and deleted the backup folder on the external hard drive and started over. No luck.

    I tried connecting the external hard drive directly to my laptop with USB, and SyncToy works fine - I don't think the problem is with the hard drive itself.

    I have tried to first directly copy my files to the hard drive, and then run SyncToy - I still get the errors.

    I am hoping someone has a suggestion of where I can look for the issues. Thanks in advance!
