I am getting the error "Source folder xxxx not found". I have a simple home network running Win7 and run FreeFileSync on the main computer. The "not found" folders are on one of the other computers. I can access those other folders from the main computer using Windows Explorer, no problem. I can run the sync option and it apparently finds those folders but when you hit enter to actually run the backup you get the error message. I have used FreeFileSync successfully for years and this is the first occurrence of this issue.

When a folder is not found, you should already get a warning message during comparison (unless the warning was hidden => undo via menu->tools)

I am not seeing any additional warning messages. The fact remains that I can navigate without any issue to these source folders but for some reason FreeFileSync cannot. I have had the messages before and at some point they go away and the file save completes successfully. This time I cannot get past the messages.

Perhaps you've set "Ignore errors" in sync settings.
