moved Tb profiles.ini file pbm for birdiesync ?

Post by cbhihe »

Hi everybody,
I recently moved my Thunderbird 25.5.0 default folder by modifying its profiles.ini located in C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Datos de programa\Thunderbird.
Upon synchronizing my Android cell phone for the 1st time since the move, I noticed that Birdisync was starting to re write ALL contacts and EVENTS anew.
Can someone explain how to prevent that from happening?
Itis just a hunch but it looks like Birdiesync thinks it has never synchronized my mobile device with Thunderbird before. (??)
Laptop: Dual boot Win XP SP3 || Linux Trusty Tahr (LTS)
Cell: OS Android 4.1.2

Hello cbhihe,

If the profile path is modified, BirdieSync considers that the events are new. It is as if the previous events were deleted and new ones appeared. So they are synchronized again.
With next evolutions of BirdieSync, the fact that the profile directory is moved should not affect the synchronization.
