Re: Can I synchronise my static desktop to a mobile laptop ?

Morning Tatewise, thanks for the confirmation.

Yes, I understand from what you have said previously, the need to migrate settings using your plugin, if I modify customisations in the future.

Thank you very much for your help.

Re: Can I synchronise my static desktop to a mobile laptop ?

Tatewise, I think you have answered my question, ie that OneDrive does not deal with Media (jpeg files) separately from the rest of FH files. So, as I don't intend to store my high resolution photographs in OneDrive, I can delete Pictures from OneDrive retaining only Documents. Arising from discussi...

Morning Tatewise, I've now moved on, remembering that I had to ensure that FH was off, to the point where I was asked whether I wanted the plugin to turn off FH and I selected YES. I then found myself looking at a DOS screen which said ECHO OFF and then asked me if I wanted to continue with Register...

Re: Can I synchronise my static desktop to a mobile laptop ?

Tatewise,

Having gone through the FAQs etc, I'm pretty sure that my next move is to press the "RESTORE all FH Custom and Preferences Settings" button, albeit RED. If I do so and then am not confident to continue, can I come back out again?
