Cannot schedule a task to run Sync Toy and run All Pair automatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I tried to use Vista\Accesories\System Tool\Scheduled Task to schedule a task to run Sycn Toy and run All Pairs automatically, I put the following command

    "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.0\SyncToy.exe -R" In the Schedule Task \ Action tab. Sync Toy does not open and run all pairs

    Do we need to put -R in the Add Argument or Start in fields in the Schedule Task (Action Tab)

    However, if I just put ""C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.0\SyncToy.exe", Sync Toy screen open automatically, but then I need to click on Run All. I tried to automate Sync Toy, so that we don't need to click on Run all.

    Any ideas

  • Hi Pong, 
        You should use SyncToyCmd.exe -R but not SyncToy.exe -R when you schedule the task. After you installing SyncToy 2.0, you will find SyncToyCmd.exe at the same folder as SyncToy.exe.

    BTW, if you need to create/delete folder pair, use SyncToy.exe. For more info, please use /? find more options for SyncToyCmd.exe and SyncToy.exe.
