You can install the new 3.0 version over an existing 2.x version
without uninstalling 2.x first. But before you do that, make a backup
of existing sync tasks. To make a backup, copy all *.STF and *.SDB
files from your current sync task folder to a safe place. Like this:
Old sync tasks can be used as-is, and further edited with 3.0.
But after editing, you CANNOT use the same sync tasks with an older
version. Rather, you need to restore them from the backup.
The new 3.0 version cannot be installed in parallel with an older
2.x version, as the new version replaces the existing installation.
So if you want to test the 3.0 version, and keep your existing 2.x
installation intact, you need to install 3.0 on a separate computer.
Possible errors when using old 2.x sync task
If you get the error message "Path/File access error"
when trying to save a sync task after editing, or after completing
a sync run, you need to manually change the permission settings
for the sync task (*.STF) and SyncDB files (*.SDB). To change the
permissions for multiple files, you need an elevated command prompt.
1. Click Start-menu
2. Type: cmd
3. Right-click cmd.exe when it shows up under programs
4. Select Run as administrator
5. Change to the folder where your sync tasks are located, like
6. Now enter the following command:
icalcs *.* /inheritance:e
Now all of the files should inherit their security settings from
the parent folder.
