Sync taking way too long

The sync function seems to be going through every database every time. Is that correct? Why would it not just check those databases that have changed since the last sync?

Hi Jesse,

If the BlackBerry version used the PDB format, we could just check to see if it was modified before sending it down. In actuality, we have to create the equivalent PDB file first which involves both the BB app and the Desktop, which results in a PDB file on the desktop. Then we do a comparison and if there are no changes, we move on without any further loading or syncing. But this process is indeed rather slow, especially compared to other platforms!

Are you saying that there is nothing that I can do about this? Can I convert to a different format? If so, how do I do that? Or, am I stuck starting the process an letting it run over night?
