Nice program, but v. 2.0.3 is not able to handle Vista-user-folders. For instance: the folders "C:\Users\$user$\AppData\Local\Application Data" or "C:\Users\$user$\Documents\Mijn muziek" can not be found by Toucan. This is because these folders actually don't exist on my Vista-machine, but only exist als links to another folder.

Version 2.0.5 crashes when starting from a Stick (Toucan.exe has detected a problem ...). Starting it from a HDD will cause no problems. ???

@Lucas: Rather than using those links (which only exist for backwards compatibility with XP), you should be using C:\Users\$user$\AppData\Local and C:\Users\$user$\Music instead.

Same with me, doesn't work from the stick.

nothing comes close to rsync. Go check it out then you'll agree.

I have used version 2.2.1 for years and have had no problems at all.
Lucas, PeZett, Midas, Meks: Sorry to hear you cannot work Toucan.
billie: 'nothing comes close to rsync' ON YOUR PC, you mean. I have no need to go to another backup program. Good luck with your rsync software.
