How to Receive Sync confirmation through SyncToy2.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I have recently upgraded to Windows 7, and for the most part it has been a positive experience. 

    One problem that I have not been able to solve is how to display a sync confirmation window after a successful sync to an external hard drive, and concurrently how to display an error window when the sync is unsuccessful (eg when the xHD is not connected).

    Here are the two batch files I am using to control SyncToy:


    cd C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\

    SyncToyCmd.exe -R"My Documents Backup"

    SyncToyCmd.exe -R"My Apps Backup"

    SyncToyCmd.exe -R"My Pictures Backup"



    cd C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\

    SyncToyCmd.exe -R"My Music Backup"

    SyncToyCmd.exe -R"My Videos Backup"



    I run these batch files through windows built in scheduler and have no problems with the actual syncing itself.

    Just to reiterate, I am looking for help on building confirmation and error displays when the sync is successful/unsuccessful.

    Any help would be appreciated.
