  1. This option allows you to select which data types to synchronize. (i.e. contacts, calendar, task, notes, journals)
  2. This option allows you to set the sync direction. (i.e. ACT! to Device; Device to ACT!; Sync both ways)
  3. This option will wipe/delete all the Device data first, then reload the Device using ACT! Data.
    *Note: Use this option with caution and always make sure you have backed up your data.

4.Deletion Preferences - By default this option is set as "ACT! is primary..." which will prevent the synchronization from deleting any data in ACT!. This is usually recommended, to protect the ACT! database from deletions. New and/or modified records will still synchronize. You can change the settings to synchronize deleted records in both directions if desired.
