STUCK at "Preparing List of Files"

Post by zzaj2018 »

Here's the mask I have under "Music" for my backup drive:

\Entertainment\Music\<Artist>\<Album>\<Title>

NOTE: I didn't enter the DRIVE letter in the path, since it's "this" drive that I am synching to; do I have to enter that?

The process starts, and says "Preparing List of Files", but never starts the synch.

Please HELP... I absolutely must have those files synched.

Thanks!

Hi,
It really depends on number of files you want to sync and number of files you already have on the backup drive. It can take from 10 seconds to few hours, depending on number of files and connection bandwidth (eg. USB 2.0 only have up to theoretical 480MB/s).

May I ask, what is the intended purpose of that drive? eg. plain file backup drive or portable backup to be used with other PCs or as mobile music library?

Peke,

Thanks for the feedback; it turns out I was entering the mask incorrectly; when I added a : to g\, as in g:\, everything worked again...
