Chapter 5. Using .Mac Sync > Performing a Manual Sync

Performing a Manual Sync

If you've set up your .Mac Sync preferences to Automatic, Every Hour, Every Day, or Every Week, your computer will automatically synchronize your data on the schedule you've set. If you've set it to Manually, however, you'll have to be the one to initiate a sync.

To manually perform a sync

1.
From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.

The System Preferences application launches, and the main System Preferences window opens.

2.
Click the .Mac icon.

The .Mac pane opens, with the Account tab selected.

3.
Click the Sync tab.

The .Mac Sync preferences load.

4.
In the lower right corner of the .Mac Sync preferences, click the Sync Now button (Figure 5.13).

Figure 5.13. Clicking the Sync Now button forces a synchronization to happen immediately.


Your Mac synchronizes your information with your .Mac account.
