File and folder sync hits PC Suite

Thanks to IM's Stefan for pointing us towards v6.84 of PC Suite, out today with 'the synchronization of files and folders between PC and phone'. Please comment if you install and try this!

Read on in the full article.

Great to see features continuing to be added to PC Suite. Folder sync is something I wanted for a while.

It's a shame all the drivers (phones etc.) have to recognised again / connections set up though. Store Images continues to grab every image in site (i.e. if you store images on your phone and want to keep them there don't use delete after copying to PC option).

At least its all very painless these days. PC Suite really has come on since the early days. Definitely one of the most under valued bits of software.

Good start.

What you really need is some more advanced options. Like:

Allowing you to map several folders, not just the one.
Select specific files, files based on extension etc.

By the way, does PC Suite let the nokianternal memory & storage appear as disks on your pc. So you can use a 3rd party file sync. tool ?

One Way Sync

Has anyone actually tried this new version? On my N95 it only seems to sync from the phone to the PC!
Change a file on the PC, dont touch the phone, and it is over written by the phone version!
Not a lot of good, and I cant find an email address for Nokia support!
Bah!

great stuff!

Nokia, a big thanks to you!!!

This is something I have been dreaming of for a long time! Great that you added this feature!

Even if somenthing does not work (as it often happens with everything new), it's very good that the feature was at all implemented and I am certain that all bugs (if any) will sooner or later be removed!

I could not get the file sync to work with Toshiba bluetooth stack version 4 (even though they say it is compatible). It was saying it could not create the briefcase folder on either the phone or the memory card on my 6680. It eventually hung the bluetooth manager. Upgraded to version 5 from Toshiba Website and now works, although so far have only synced a file on the PC to an empty folder on the phone.

Syncing

I repeate my question, has anyone actually got this syncing both ways? Cos even after a complete uninstal/install, it still doesnt work.

Beautiful! I just tried the file transfer and it worked perfectly.

I'm also pleased at the stability of the new suite.

Have to skip Wizard to get the file synch options

Strange - I've just updated my PCSuite software (and About confirms that I have version 6.84.10.3), but Synch Settings still only asks me which PC (i.e. email) application I want to use ... the answer to which is "None" - not an available option.

Is it only possible to get to the menu in your screenshot if you also synch with an email / address book application?

Never mind - just answered my own question: you have to skip the Wizard (an option I hadn't spotted before) ... and found that sadly the file synch is pretty simplistic, and doesn't give you any choice about which folder(s) on the phone to synch - it has to be either C:\Data\Briefcase or E:\Briefcase, so you can't use it as a way to keep all your files in synch.

Oh well, I suppose it's a step in the right direction.

Yes it synchs only one way E90 to PC unless I reboot my PC or logoff and logon my PC session. Then it works the first time and then I have to repeat the whole reboot....

File sync does not give precedence to date

FYI:

To the poster asking if anyone had actually gotten the file sync to work as described: I have not. :-)

In PC Suite Version 6.84.10.3 older files on my phone (E61) will overwrite newer files on the PC. I carefully tested this prior to actual use, fortunately.

I can only use the file sync feature to add entirely new file files to either the desktop or the phone.
