SyncToy not working

    Question

  • Hello,

    I use SyncToy for a long time to save photos from my hard drive on my external drive Verbatim USB3.

    Since a recent Windows update to, SyncToy does Operates more and I have the following error message: "Failed to create folder pair - Failed to create the provider"

    I Windows7 and following installed:

    - Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components (x64) ENU of 18/07/12

    - Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components (x86) ENU of 06/09/13

    - Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Provider Services (x64) ENU of 18/07/12

    - Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Provider Services (x86) ENU of 09/06/13

    - Microsoft.Net Framework 4.5.1 09/10/14

    - Microsoft.Net Framework 4.5.1 (French) of 10/09/14

    I read somewhere that it was appropriate to repair Framework 2 but I am unable alone.

    Could you please tell me how to run SyncToy again that I greatly appreciate? thank you

    Best Regards.

    Bonjour,<o:p></o:p>

    J'utilise depuis très longtemps SyncToy pour sauvegarder les photos de mon disque dur sur mon disque externe Verbatim USB3.<o:p></o:p>

    Depuis une récente mise à jour de Windows, SyncToy ne Fonctionne plus et j'ai le message d'erreur suivant: "Failed to create folder pair - Failed to create the provider"<o:p></o:p>

    J'ai Windows7 et les programmes suivants sont installés:<o:p></o:p>

    - Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components (x64) ENU du 18/07/12<o:p></o:p>

    - Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components (x86) ENU du 09/06/13<o:p></o:p>

    Je ai lu quelque part qu'il convenait de réparer Framework 2 mais j'en suis bien incapable seul.<o:p></o:p>

    Pourriez-vous SVP me dire comment refaire fonctionner SyncToy que j'apprécie énormément? Merci<o:p></o:p>

    Cordialement.<o:p></o:p>

  • Try this: Right click on the destination folder on the other computer or disk you are syncing with. Select "Share with   >" and you will get several options. Select "Homegroup (view and edit)". This worked with my 2 windows computers which I had upgraded to Windows 10. I suspect it should work with Windows 7. Coop
