Synchronization Question

  • Ok, I understand it...but my question is when you turn sychron on (let's say I have a tablet with the latest Opera installed), does my Opera on my laptop synchronize to my tablet, or does the tablet synchronize to my laptop. I mean on my tablet I have a different speed dial settings (icons/bookmarks) and have added some bookmarks there that may be different than my laptop.

    I ask this because recently I signed in for synchron on both, and much to my surprise MANY of my bookmarks were duplicated on my laptop. Which computer takes precedence...if I don't have some entries/bookmarks/speed dial BMs on one, will synchronization add those to the other, or will Opera delete those on the other because they are not there on the other.

    I know this may sound stupid, but there are some bookmarks I have on my laptop that I want synchronized to my tablet, and others I do not. it would be nice to be able to mark those bookmarks you want sent to the other and vice versa.

  • Let me say this another way, being that no one wants to weigh in here.

    If I add a bookmark or a speed dial on my laptop, and then 2 days later start synchron, will the system add the BM to my tablet, or will the system delete the BM from my laptop.

    Is there a way for Opera to do the synchron in one direction only, meaning can I set it up so that the tablet ONLY synchronizes to the laptop and not vice versa??

  • Synchronization of a new device should result in both devices having all bookmarks - but I did say "should" and not "will", if possible you might want to back up everything. No, there is no setting for one-directional sync.
