Windows 7: Sync Center

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit SP1 updated current

I take it by your reply that the reason I couldn't see my files going the "traditional route" is that the synch center/redirected folders resulted in compressed files? Makes sense, I just haven't seen that documented yet. And yes, I do have my hidden/system files shown.

As to SynchToy, it says on it's download page that it's offered "as is" and is unsupported. Though, as you say, I suppose the offer of money may turn their heads!

Also in my running around, I found some info at Wikipedia on robocopy; sorry I can't link right now but it's easy to find. Have you (or anyone) ever dealt with that one?
