First, switch the location of the Data Folder to a shared directory. Older versions of Syncrify were used to specify the user's home directory to hold profiles, which won't work in the new version. Run the existing Syncrify client on machine and click the Tools menu. If see a menu item that reads Switch to shared Data folder, click it. See image below.STEP 2
This step will move the Data Folder from user's home directory to a shared location that is accessible to every user on the machine.
It is quite possible that you may not see this menu item on your end. Ignore this step if the menu item is not visible. This means the Data folder is already in the shared location.
Click Open Data Folder under the file menu and verify the location of the Data folder is in a shared path. For example:
- C:\ProgramData\SyncrifyData - On Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 2008
- C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\SyncrifyData - On Windows XP, 2003 and 2000
Uninstall the existing Syncrify client. Although this is not required, having both clients on the machine may create confusion and therefore, we recommend uninstalling the older version. Note that uninstalling a client will retain the Data Folder where all profile information is stored.STEP 3
Install the new service-based client. After installation run Syncrify Client to ensure the schedules have been ported to the new scheduler.
