SyncToy 1.4 and Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    I've been using SyncToy 1.4 on XP with no problems.  When I tried using it on a Vista laptop I get an error message - exception during preview. the specified file path, file name or both are too long etc....
    I specified C:\Users\Louise\Photos but when I preview the pair for sync it adds on or create a longer file path name, like
    C:\Users\Louise\Photos\Tempory Internet files\Contents\IE5\QLSZO..........four or five lines of file names. No wonder the file path is more than 250 characters long. How do I force the file path to what I originally wanted.
    I would rather not try SyncToy2.0 at this point.
    Cheers
