I waited until some of the bugs were worked out and took the plunge today. I moved (did not replicate or duplicate) one folder into the sync folder in a pretty large database as a test. The entire database started syncing, not just the folder in the sync folder - I watched for a minute to be sure that was really happening - the progress bar made it clear the whole database was syncing - and then I cancelled - a lot of random files from the database are now on the iphone. The files include some that were in the folder I moved to the sync folder - but many more that were not.
I am not sure how to proceed - I have searched the forums and have not found this problem. I need to get the random files off the iphone but moving files from the sync folder on my mac won’t do that - and I need to get this working with just the sync file.
I am doing this with an iphone gs and original macbook air with 10.5.8 OS.
Thanks for any help.
