Where in HTC Sync is the option to disable synchronization upon connecting the phone to the computer?
There used to be plenty of options in the old versions of HTC Sync. By old versions I mean versions like 2.0 that came with my phone. This is the version I have been using for two years now. I just thought I would update to get all the latest bells and whistles. But little did I know that the newest HTC Sync version is just one big splash screen with a picture of my phone on it and one big SYNC button. And it is very resource hungry.
I am downloading the new HTC Sync Manager right now. But I don't think it's compatible with HTC Desire or other older HTC devices. I think it's mainly made for the HTC One series of phones. So I don't expect much from it, but I'll give it a try anyway. Are there more sync options in Sync Manager than in the regular Sync?
What's a good alternative to HTC Sync that I can use with HTC Desire? Which ones are popular? I don't want anything too fancy. I don't need anything that's too much resource hungry and media focused. Just plain sync tool (PIM).
Update: HTC Sync Manager doesn't even start
The first time HTC Sync Manager started it was scanning my computer for media files. I aborted the operation and went to settings to change the language. It prompted me to restart the program so I clicked OK. It restarted and got stock at the splash screen. Now it does that every time and the only way to close it is to terminate the associated process.
Great software indeed... it should not stop working just because the user changes the language in the settings. Looks like I will have to install it all over again to erase any conflicting config files and such.
