Windows 7: FreeFile sync

15 Nov 2012   #1

Summary Operating System Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 CPU AMD Athlon II X2 250 23 C
FreeFile sync

Good day to all.
Been using this bit of software for a while,Works well just one little matter regarding saving saved file syncs.
Software here...FreeFileSync | Free Security & Utilities software downloads at

When the sync finishes the backup ie: my documents from C drive to an external drive,I have to then save the task to my documents as a file.
''SyncFile My Documents to drive E''.Now if I have a backup for my documents and one for my music and another for my video.
Then we have three files to save to my documents,So this is the problem.
I made a new folder in my documents and named it as FileSync then moved the three saved items into this folder,Then on opening the freesync program it wont recognise the files that I have placed into the folder that I made for that purpose,If I remove the three files from that folder and just place then back into my documents,They are recognised by the software.
Anyone using this piece of kit can help me out here please,Its not causing a major problem just annoying.
Thanks in advance.Forgot to say running windows 7 64bit.
