Databases moving around?

Postby fredlef » Mon Jan 18, 2010 7:42 am

Why after a synch do some of my databases move from the phone folder to the archive folder and get renamed with two periods (..). Is this a normal process as when I go back to look at the databases in the desktop version they are no longer available until I move them around again?

Hi there,

What is likely happening is that these databases are not on your handheld. We use the handheld as the master list during a sync. If a database is on the handheld but not the desktop it's added to the desktop folder. But if the database is on the desktop and not the handheld and normal sync settings for 'synchronize' are enabled, we assume it was deleted from the handheld and archive it.

The fact that you have to keep moving it back means it was likely deemed as not on the handheld, so perhaps you can view the Sync log and see what reason it provides for doing so!
