I don't understand what you are trying to do here, but anyway, here is an explanation: When you create a contact on a Google Account, that contact is assigned to that Google Account, so that it syncs. When you remove that account, Android associates that contact with the Google Account, and removes it from the phone.

I am trying to figure this out as well. I was keeping copies of photos on our respective personal laptops and then using something like Microsoft Sync, but didn't like it. Then went to BitTorrentSync which seemed to work well. Then I would use the desktop app to keep photos in sync with each person's Google Photos account. Then I decided to setup a ...

Well in the end, I managed to fix the problem by removing my google account from the android device. Then I opened up Business Calendar and it was still showing the dead task list on the device although the calendar and other task lists were not present. I removed the traces of the tasks and list which was dead and then I think I reinstalled Business ...

Wifi credentials are actually not stored very securely at all, (plain text!), but in a system folder, meaning that only a rooted app could access it. Google's backup is your best bet. It's stored in the data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf file, for the record. If your phone is rooted, there are apps like Wifi Key Recovery and Wifi Password Recovery that ...

This feature is built into Google Services, although my experience is that it sometimes struggles when moving to a new device or if you have multiple devices. On the device that has the Wi-Fi Settings you want to keep, go to Settings -> Backup & reset there is a Back up my data option which includes Backup application data, *Wi-Fi passwords*, and ...

Several of the apps you list most likely came pre-installed with your device (e.g. Gmail, Google, Google Talkback). Keeping that in mind brings up the question: How did they end up being associated with your account? Which leads to a possibility to achieve what you want: Delete the "old" Google account from that device Wait a little. It usually doesn't ...

I am posting this as an answer to my own question, instead of just a comment, because I've found a solution. In fact, the solution is to use the very same tool I was using, because they have recently updated it (version 7) enabling syncing of MTP devices. Free File Sync It works just as expected, and it's extremely easy to sync. The only downside is that ...

The only way I've found to do this is by using the FTP protocol over a shared WiFi network. Apps like ES File Explorer have the ability to run as an FTP client or server on the phone, and then you can use an app like Filezilla as a server on the computer. This works for folders, and Filezilla does give you some options ("Overwrite if source file newer", or ...

If you add Facebook IDs to the note field of your contacts (or you have been using a HTC Sense device which had probably done it for you), you can try ContactSyncDuck for Facebook. Disclaimer: I am affiliated with this application.

Here two years later, Goodsync has added an option to sync through MTP, and it works like a charm. Its a beta feature in v9 and will probably be in Goodsync 10, and it costs money. Be noted though that Goodsync support is bad in my experience. Goodsync can also sync the dir through wifi. MTP requires a cable so in not automatic. Using wifi it can be ...

I found a 'near' solution for my Moto-X (2014) running OS 5.1. Go to Accounts, and turn off Auto-Sync Data Go to Apps, find Contacts Storage and Clear Data Go to Accounts, Google (all of the sync toggle should be off at this moment) Sync only the Contacts by touching the Sync toggle button, and wait patiently until the sync arrow symbol stop (meaning sync ...

They are probably synchronized but not visible in contacts, try looking into Contacts settings something about contacts to visualize, or accounts.

If you want to stop syncing the contacts, go to Settings->Applications->System->Google Contacts Sync->Disable->OK. I had a similar problem wherein I got force close warnings every 3-4 seconds. If more than one apps are syncing your contacts then you must also uncheck those features from Accounts group in Settings. Or you can just turn off background data.
