SyncToy, a free PowerToy for Microsoft Windows, is an easy to use, highly customizable program that helps users to do the heavy lifting involved with the copying, moving, and synchronization of different directories. Most common operations can be performed with just a few clicks of the mouse, and additional customization is available without additional complexity.
SyncToy can manage multiple sets of folders at the same time; it can combine files from two folders in one case, and mimic renames and deletes in another case. Unlike other applications, SyncToy actually keeps track of renames to files and will make sure those changes get carried over to the synchronized folder.
# Better Performance: The speed of file copy operations is significantly increased across the board.
# Improved Robustness: Much more resilient to transient network and file system errors and better error reporting which pin-points which file the sync failed on in case thereâ€™s a fatal error that stops the sync.
# Folder pair configuration backup: Folder pair configuration is automatically backed up under %localappdata%\microsoft\synctoy\2.0. User can replace SyncToyDirPairs.bin with the backup copy to resolve last saved configuration.
# Bug Fixes:
* Fixed the data corruption issue when using SyncToy with NAS drives.
* Fixed the issue that prevented uploading files to SharePoint when using SyncToy 2.0.
* Fixed the issue that prevented delete changes from being synchronized when the sync option is set to â€œEchoâ€.
* Fixed the UI issue where reported file time were off by the difference between local time and UTC when destination is a FAT volume.
