Synctoy configuration in user profile RRS feed

  • Question

  • Having recreated a users Windows XP profile the Synctoy pairs have had to be recreated and it's now not clear what state the files are in.  I have a copy of the old user profile but don't know where to find the configuration data for the Synctoy jobs and the files which show the activity.  Can I just move them over and continue with Synctoy as before...?

  • The folder pairs info for one user should locate at [system diver]:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\SyncToy\2.0\, all the folder pairs info saved at file SyncToyDirPairs.bin.
    You can use the previous SyncToyDirPairs.bin file replace the current one, then all of the folder pairs will be restored. But you need to use SyncToy UI run sync/preview once at first. That will help you fix some issues(such as some folders do not exist) if there are.
