SyncToy Literally not running all of a sudden RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I need a hand with a problem I'm having with SyncToy. I've been using this program for about 8 months now with no trouble. today I realize it hasn't been syncing my files for about 10 days now (I have it set up to auto-sync).

    I decided to launch the application and do it manually. When I try to run it (even run it as administrator) -- it shows the hourglass like its trying to launch, but it never launches.

    Here's my thought and question. I'm assuming synctoy requires a certain service or services running to function. Does anyone know what services those are?

    I went through and I did a repair on the synctoy, I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it, and I've gone in and repaired Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 core and provider services just in case any of that was bad... no help.

    Please, I hope someone can assist!
