SyncToy 2.1 ; Windows 7 ; 32bit ; fails when using Task Scheduler but works manually

    السؤال

  • I have established a number of folder pairs between a local disk and a NAS drive and can successfully run a synchronisation manually - both from within SyncToy (ST) and from a DOS window.  However, if I schedule ST using the W7 task scheduler the task is scheduled properly but fails to run. The scheduled task runs under my User ID - the same one I use to run ST manually.  The NAS drive is also used successfully by ST 2.0 on a Win XP 32bit machine connected to the same network

     

    I see the following in the History tab in Task Scheduler:

    The following is from the ST log:

     

    SYNC: 06/17/2010 16:12:00:480: Starting SyncToyCmd, version 2.1.0.0, built 19-Oct-2009 2:58:16 AM.

    SYNC: 06/17/2010 16:12:00:612: *** Failed to execute folder pair Communal Work Area. Could not locate folder M:\Communal Work Area\.

     

    I would love some help on this one :-).  Other people seem to have ST 2.1 running properly on W7 so I presume I am doing something dumb but what?

     

    Additional piece of information I forgot to include: the "M" drive is the target drive, i.e the NAS drive

  • I am having the exact same problem. I thought it was my cheesy setup of a hard drive attached to the USB port of my Linksys router so I bought a real NAS drive. That one failed exactly like your did (same error). Please post back here if you find an answer and I will too.

  • Same issue. Using a NAS drive. Works fine when logged in, but not using the scheduler (Windows XP). Followed instructions in terms of making sure the scheduler has a proper username and password. Still no luck.

    Now, all shares on the NAS that are not secure work fine (e.g. ones not requiring a login), only the one that is password protected fails.

     

    Help? Direction? Something?

     

    Tx.

  • Having the same issue on a brand new HP XPS8300 with Win7x64.  Same error and log.  My backup drive is not a true NAS but connected to my wireless router's USB port.  Kicking off the folder pairs manually works without issues, but the scheduled task is not working.
