Customizing HotSync application settings (Conduit)

What is a “Conduit”?

For each application, you can define a set of options that determine how
records are handled during synchronization. These options are called a
“conduit.” By default, a HotSync


operation synchronizes all files between

your CLIÉ handheld and the Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software.

In general, you should leave the settings as they are to synchronize all files.
The only reason you might want to change these settings is to overwrite data
on either your CLIÉ handheld or the Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software, or to
avoid synchronizing a particular type of file because you do not use it.
In addition to the conduits for Date Book, Address Book, To Do List, and
Memo Pad, the Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software offers System and Install
conduits. The System conduit backs up the system information stored on
your CLIÉ handheld. The Install conduit installs add-on applications to your
CLIÉ handheld.
