  • Great tool but I get confused by dates such as "Last run at: 2/1/2009". But that's tomorrow! Oops. No. It was last month!

    Please use the system regionalisation time format, preferably the long one. If that can't be done then please use something that is unambiguous such as 2009-01-02 if you have to use a numeric format.

    Thanks,

    Just a bump to say that this problem is still there in SyncToy 2.1. As Lummo says, a date written as "1/4/2010" could be interpreted as 2010-04-01 or 2010-01-04. Please either use the correct format for the region, or if that's not possible (or worth the effort), use an unambiguous format such as ISO 8601.
