First, we must figure out what SyncToy is. SyncToy is a folder synchronization software launched by Microsoft. Version 2.1for XP systems has came out, when we use this program for the first time we may not know its exact usage, I carefully studied in its synchronized ways, there are three kinds of ways, as long as we understand this 3 ways, we can better use this program.
SyncToy has no scheduled tasks, if you need to perform timing functions you need to call the Windows “Task Scheduler” to complete, the way is:
Control Panel >> Scheduled Tasks >> Add Scheduled Task. Set a time, just select a program first, after the setting was complete, modify “Run” in the advanced properties, the content is “C: \ Program Files \ SyncToy 2.1 \ SyncToyCmd. exe “-R Folder Pairs Name, where” Folder Pairs Name “is the name of the synchronization task of Sync Toy,” starting at “content is:” C: \ Program Files \ SyncToy 2.1 “. Thus we complete the set-up of a task plan.
Of course, if you do not need to perform timing synchronization, this step can be ignored, you can perform it manually in Sync Toy.
The wrong way to uninstall Sync Toy is to locate its folder, right-click it and select “Delete”, while quite a number of people are still doing this.
Proper uninstallation methods:
Here I use Windows 7 system as an example as Windows 7 still the most popular operation system.

3.Search for SyncToy in the list, right-click it and select Uninstall.
