SyncBack Freeware running 39 times in background - and program not responding

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

SyncBack Freeware running 39 times in background - and program not responding

Post by adchesney »

Dear Folks,

I'm secretary for a small charity, so I've used the freeware version for a few years - all without problem.

I sync between My Documents, OneDrive and GoogleDrive...again all without problem UNTIL some few days or weeks ago.

It appears that SyncBackFree is not closing down after running in background, so on my task manager it is showing 39 times (see attached file).

I have today upgraded to the latest version, but this has not resolved the issue.

It was only that I noticed a pop-up window about "locking files or folders" that prompted me to look into this.

There are no reported errors in the Sync. I'm running Windows 10 64Bit

Any ideas?
