  1. You work on your genealogy on your Mac at home and you have installed Heredis 2014. Your file contains 343 individuals and 71 media.
  2. You have a Mac laptop that you take with you when you travel. You have also installed Heredis 2014 on this computer because your Heredis licence permits this.

    been launched. It will also display any USB flash drives plugged on your computer.
  • Select the destination device.
  • The lower part of the synchronization window tells you the direction proposed for file transfer.
    Click Send to start sending your data and your media to your laptop.

 

 

  • Your laptop receives a request for confirmation. You must accept dispatch of data so that the synchronization can be effected.

When the synchronization is complete, the file opens on your laptop. You have transferred 343 people and 71 media, which are now both on your home computer and your laptop.

Subsequent synchronizations

You have added to your genealogy on your laptop. You have recorded three new individuals, and amended two existing individuals and added two media. Do a synchronization to recover the data on your home computer.

  • Launch Heredis on your laptop but do not open the genealogy file.
  • Launch Heredis on your home computer and open the file to be updated.
  • Click the Sync button.

    or

Heredis will identify what information has been modified and will only transmit this.

Advice
If you do not have a Wi-Fi network or if it is not working, you may synchronize with a storage tool (USB flash drive or removable hard disk) that you may connect to your two computers successively to Send and Receive data.
