Hi, all,

I am having a very hard time getting SyncToy to successfully sync a folder of pst files from a user pc to a server.  Th pc runs xp pro, and the server runs 2003.  If I use SyncToy, the effects are perfect, but if i use synctoycmd.exe -r from task scheduler to do this, it reports back that no files needed updating (when one in fact does), creates a file on the right hand side with the exact filesize of the file that needs updating and a very long name starting with FSPD, then ends.  What is going on?  Please help...

The folder pair has been deleted and recreated, and all files created by synctoy in both folders deleted.

I was never able to resolve this using SyncToy.  I finally used GoodSync instead, which did the job just fine and also lets you configure the Task Scheduler event from inside the program.
