Vista file blocking RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Just in case it helps someone else, I discover that SOME of the files synctoy won't echo from XP to Vista are 'blocked' .exe files that were downloads from the web (application updates etc.) - I couldn't copy these manually either. The vista error message (either manually or in synctoy log) is totally unhelpful one about not having permission to read the file. Go to the XP machine the file is on, and you can copy it anywhere (even to the vista machine). From the vista machine you can't copy it anywhere (even to somewhere else on the XP machine) although you CAN virus scan it.

    Not a synctoy problem, just another piece of 'nanny knows best' clunkiness from Vista.
