    Creating a pair in SyncToy that includes a NAS (network accessible storage)


    Prior to my laptop moving from win 7 to Win 10, I had no problem creating a SyncToy pair consisting of a NAS (a WD My Cloud) and an external HDD. Now when I attempt to create a pair, and thus browse the list of folders, the NAS is not visible in the list. The current version of SyncToy is 2.1.0.0, built 19/10/2009. How do I overcome this please?


    TIA .... Greg

    SyncToy 2.1(x64) Question: SyncToyCmd.exe not working with WD MyCloud NAS drive?

    I recently purchased a Western Digital MyCloud NAS drive to use as backup. I have SyncToy 2.1(x64) installed, and I want to use Task Scheduler to execute a task every night to run the backup. However, SyncToy does not seem to work properly when running the
    command mode for a folder pair. Even though I have already initialized the SyncToy folder pair by running it manually, the program gives an error message when I try to run it from command line. I get the following result: "SyncToyCmd has detected that the
    folder pair DocumentsBAK has not been synchronized yet. Please run SyncToy.exe to complete the initial synchronization."

    Here is my setup on Windows 10:

    I have the MyCloud drive connected properly to the network through the router.

    I have set up the folder pair in SyncToy 2.1(x64) by using the Browse buttons to select the two folders:

    - Left folder = the Documents folder on my internal hard drive

    - Right folder = the BAK folder created on the MyCloud NAS drive

    I named the folder pair DocumentsBAK.

    I also have another folder pair set up to sync some files on my PC to my wife's PC.

    I open a Command window to test it out as follows:

    C:\Users\JDA>cd "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\"

    C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1>SyncToyCmd.exe -R

    SyncToyCmd has detected that the folder pair Jon Documents to AutoBAK has not been synchronized yet. Please run SyncToy.exe to complete the initial synchronization.

    The folder pair to sync the files to my wife's PC runs OK. I get the error message only with the Folder Pair to back up to the MyCloud NAS drive.

    When I run the Folder Pair directly through SyncToy 2.1, it runs properly.

    However, when I try to run it through the command line interface SyncToyCmd, I always get the message shown above.

    Am I doing something incorrectly, or does the Western Digital drive cause the problem?
     
  3. Network attached storage (NAS)

    OKAY... I get the laptop thru all the updates by using the troubleshooter. Now I still cannot see my NAS in file explorer BUT there is one file listed in quick access that is on the NAS. If I open file location I can see everything on the NAS (WOOHOO)
    but if I close file explorer and reopen it the NAS does not appear(?).

    I am sure there is a small tweak that needs to be made but at least if I don't loose the quick access I will be able to access my files.

    One step forward!!!!

    Thanks,

    Len

    Accessing files over Network NAS drive

    I bought a new laptop on Feb 1. It had Windows 10 installed when I got it.

    I set everything up and installed my personal stuff and set the wifi adapter to "private" in the network and sharing options.

    Everything was fine. I had direct access to my WD MyCloud NAS storage drive.

    On Feb. 2, as I shut down for the night, there was an update. And the next morning, I had no access to my NAS drive.

    The drive appears in the file explorer, under network, and several locations on the drive have shortcuts in the Quick Access menu, but nothing on the drive can be accessed, except through the web interface. There is no longer any direct access.

    I have tried a large number of fixes I found through Google, including adding a credential and editing through services.msc (making a list of things "automatic" loading rather than "manual."

    Nothing has worked.

    How do I get my NAS drive back?
