    SyncToy 2.1 error


    Hello everyone. I have been experimenting with Synctoy 2.1 over the last week or so to sync-up two WD (Black) 2TB hard drives that primarily contain 600GB each of raw and completed video projects. This is an awesome little program that is extremely fast!

    One of my drives is installed internally in my desktop and the other is external, connected with USB3. My plan--and so far it's working great--is to keep these HDDs synched. I use the external drive to take on the road with me during trips or in to another room in my house to work on videos, and when I return to my home office, I simply use Synctoy's 'Synchronize' feature to copy over the changes that I made.

    The 'Synchronize' feature allows me to copy changes, deletions or additions both ways so this exactly what I'm looking for. However, I always end up with at least one error like the one in the snippets. The drives are perfectly synched and all of my desired files are always copied/deleted to both drives, but the error still exists. I have done research here and at other forums, and followed some advice to change permissions, but none of that worked.

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    ... interestingly, I just created another Folder Pair using the 'Echo' method and I do not receive any errors.
