SyncToy Hanging

Due to updates, over time, that have been made to the site and the age of this article, this post may not display correctly. In particular images may be missing or product reviews display incorrectly.

If this is the case and you'd particularly like me to fix it, then please reach out to me on Twitter.

SyncToySyncToy is a good utility (and free). But every-so-often i’ve found it to hang. It will be on one particular sync and no matter how many times I’ve tried, it will not budge.

After much playing the solution is to remove the various oddly named .bin files in the SyncToyData folder in My Documents.

Dunno why and can’t find any reference on the ‘net to anybody else having this issue.
