Synctoy 2.1 running from Task Scheduler cannot find folder because it is adding a "." to the filepath RRS feed

  • Question

  • The task runs on a machine with OS, MS Windows Server 2008 R2.  The named sync works fine from the cmd line. 

    "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\SyncToyCmd.exe" -R

    SYNC: 09/22/2017 09:20:52:575: SyncToy run of StampliDataSync (C:\Stampli\data\, T:\blahblah\StampliInvoices\) completed at 9/22/2017 9:20:52 AM.
    SyncToy action was 'Contribute'.
    SyncToy options were:
        Active for run all
        All files included
        No files excluded
        Do not check file contents
        Include read-only files
        Include hidden files
        Include system files
        Backup older files (send to Recycle Bin)
        All subfolders included
    SyncToy run took 00:00:02:870.
    Copied 0 bytes in 0 files in 00:00:02:870.
    Bytes per second 0.0, files per second 0.0.
    Avoided copying 455,161,840 bytes in 1,184 files that did not require action.
    Saved approximately 00:15:10:00 by not copying all files.

    BUT when run from the Task Scheduler, the result is

     *** Failed to execute folder pair StampliDataSync. Could not locate folder T:\blahblah\StampliInvoices\.

    Notice the offending added "."?  I've tried deleting the task and recreating it.  Same broken result.  I'd appreciate some help with this one.  My apologies for the poor formatting here.
