Viewing Your HotSync Log File

Top  Previous  Next

To view your HotSync Log file, follow these directions.

NOTE: On newer versions of Windows and newer versions of Palm's HotSync Manager, the screens and terms may be a bit different, but the steps are about the same and you should be able to accomplish them.

 

1.  First, verify the HotSync Manager icon is on your system tray.  This is what it looks like:

HSMIcon

(If the icon is not present then HotSync Manager is not running.  Try selecting Start/Programs/Palm/HotSync Manager, though this may be different for your installation.)

 

2. Next, click on the HotSync Manager icon, and choose View Log... from the menu that pops up:

 

ConduitHotSyncViewLogFile

 

 

3. In the window that pops up, you can scroll up and down to see the log entries.  Look for the most recent (at the top) log entry for Time Logger Conduit that lookssomething like the one below.

 

Color has been added for emphasis.  This shows the actual location where both Descriptors and Time records were transferred, merged and/or deleted.
