When synchronization is complete, you may plug in the device to another computer (Windows or Mac).

Whether on launching Heredis or during work, Heredis will inform you if a new genealogy or a newer version of the genealogy exists on the device you have connected and will propose to synchronize your computer with this genealogy. So, when you work, just think of plugging your USB key or external hard drive disk.
