troubleshooting Question

synctoy keeps creating new processes (memory leak?)

Hi Everybody,

I have a problem with Synctoy - it does not close its processes, and each scheduled run starts a new process. In a few hours my server runs out of resources (mem + page file), becomes unstable and eventually unusable.

Does anyone else have a similar experience? I feel it's important to note that I'm syncing in heterogenous environment (Windows, Novell and NAS shares).

Also, synctoy window closes after the number of operations is computed (never goes into the actual process of syncing), however the process is still in RAM (evident in Task Manager).

Any help would be appreciated.
