Paths with parentheses fail RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was tryingto use SyncToy 2.0 to Echo files from one folder to another, but it failed because my left path happened to contain a close paranthesis (e.g. "C:\Projects\BigApp (dev)\data").  The close paren after the word "dev" tricks it.  I suppose since SyncToy uses parantheses around its entire "-d" parameter, I can see how it could be confused, but I think this ia bug, not a legitimate description.  The quotation mark should take precedence at least, or else allow me to escape such characters.

  • Hi -

    When you say "fail" what do you mean? What was the error that you saw?

  • Hi,
    tried to repro, but did not. Can you tell me what platform/OS and SP you are working on  ?
