Hi H-SC,

Try this way:
        Dim p As New ProcessStartInfo
        p.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden
        p.FileName = "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.0\SyncToyCmd.exe"
        p.Arguments = "-R"
        Process.Start(p)

Open in new window

jpaulino,
never thought of doing it that way.  I was trying to handle it via a dos switch command.  Your suggestion is even better.  

perfect as always!!
many thanks
