Exception during preview: Analyzing the files has failed due to an intermittent failure. Please retry the sync. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I get this message every time I preview one of my Folder Pairs:
    Exception during preview: Analyzing the files has failed due to an intermittent failure. Please retry the sync.

    It happens over and over, I even tried restarting.  My other two folder pairs seem to be fine.  But one in particular always gets that message.

    I am running:
    Windows Visa Home Premium x64
    SyncToy 2.0
    I am attempting to sync my 1 month old Dell notebook to a USB HD.
    The notebook HD is NTFS; the USB HD is FAT32

    Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

  • Hi -

    The error message means that when we are trying to detech what changes have taken place - there are folders that are changing on the data itself( the root folders of the folder pair). You need to figure out what user action or maybe some program is changing the folders.

    Thanks
