Synch error: exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I get the following error message when doing an Echo to a network drive (translated frpm Swedish): Error. Unknown error. The file cannot be accessed sin it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020) Copying ...(file path and name)

    I get the same error from lots of files in various folders. I know that SyncToy cannot operate on files that are already opened, but these files are not opened in any visible program.

    What could cause these files to appear as locked?

    The same error appears also occasionally in other SyncToy operations.

    I run SyncToy 2.1 on WIndows 7 on an Acer laptop.

    Any advice is most appreciated.

  • Do you have anti virus/file monitor software runing?
