New PC With Old Data on My Phone

Postby fblittle » Wed May 15, 2019 10:51 am

I am looking for instructions to re-install HanDBase on my new PC and keep the Data on my Phone to sync with my new PC. Where can I find instructions to re-install HanDBase When the PC is new but the phone has Data to send to the PC. I copied the PDB files from my old PC but when I tried to put them in the PDB directory they disappeared after the first sync.

Hi there,

You can just reinstall the desktop software without worrying about the databases on your phone. They don't interfere with one another and even after you have a sync partnership going you can reinstall the desktop whenever you want!

I synced my phone with my Desktop App and the handheld databases weren't transferred to files in the folder: C:\Users\fblittle\Documents\HanDBase\Note8\
When I sync it goes through all the Databases on my phone but doesn't install them on the Desktop app. I then looked in the Backup folder and found that it did make a backup copy of all my handheld databases with the date and time in the file name. The folder Archive has a copy of each database in it, but these files were from a couple of weeks ago and were not updated when I tried to sync today. The databases on my Handheld have not been changed or corrupted.
Do you know what I did wrong, and what I should do to correct this? Should I delete the Desktop app and re-install it?
Sorry for all the questions I am afraid that the databases will be deleted if I do the wrong thing.

I have deleted and reinstalled HanDBase Desktop software several times. Each time I Get the sync already set up. I have first uninstalled Handbase then I have deleted all the folders related to Handbase in
C:\Users\....\Documents\handbase\, and
C:\Program files (x86)\Handbase4\, and in
C:\Users\....\AppData\Roaming\handbase4\
Each time the relationship to my phone is still setup as "Note8" (It even knows the database tables in Sync Settings before the first sync).
I can not get the phone Databases to show up on my HandBase desktop application.
The Handheld (Phone) databases are syncing to the backup folder as a backup file which I then tried to install to my phone but that just cleared the database tables (PDB files) out of C:\Users\....\Documents\Handbase\Note8\ after the first sync.
Can someone point me in the right direction? I have gone through the manuals and can't find anything relating to sending the databases from the handheld to the desktop. Will I have to delete the Database tables from my phone and reinstall them from the recent backup files?
