Chapter 6. HotSync, Step by Step > Specialized HotSyncs

6.3. Specialized HotSyncs

Under normal circumstances, the PalmPilot and the PC bring each other up-to-date during a HotSync, including all the various programs' data. But you can tailor the way a HotSync works, depending on your circumstances. For example, you might decide to HotSync only your Address Book, that's the only data you've used all week. By limiting what gets transferred, you speed up the HotSync.

Another example: suppose somebody has completely messed up your appointments in Palm Desktop. Your PalmPilot still contains an up-to-date schedule; using a special HotSync option, you can tell your software not to compare the PalmPilot with the PC, but instead to wipe out the PC's contents, replacing it with what's on the PalmPilot now.
