Migrating To New Phone

Postby Small Shiny Objects » Tue Feb 25, 2014 9:09 am

I'm expecting my new phone to arrive later today and I am wondering what the cleanest way is to move my databases to the new device. I assume I could just copy the individual databases from the HanDBase folder on my old phone to the HanDBase folder on my new phone, but I'm not sure if somehow using the Windows Desktop program would be cleaner. If it is cleaner to use the Windows Desktop program to migrate my files to the new device, please point me in the right direction for instructions on doing that.

Definitely a copy of the HanDBase folder from one device is the easiest method on Android. If you had the conduit on Windows you could also copy the files in the user's HanDBase folder to the install folder of the new device (assuming you set up a partnership and do a sync before hand). Then on the next sync the files would be installed/copied over. Honestly not sure that is any easier than just copying right from the device though if you have the ability!
