This is about the most important utility included in the
package. Your roadwarrior is not going to be immediately
productive if you cannot easily synchronize important
documents, files and contacts with your desktop PC.
Intellisync Connection Setup
Puma Intellisync allows you to
sync documents, folders and do file transfers via infra-red,
parallel or serial port. The tool also syncs with your PIMs,
such as Lotus Organizer 97 and MS Outlook 97/98, for contacts,
tasklist and notes.
File Synchronization In
My test went on smoothly via
parallel port cable; the only MAJOR gripe being that
Intellisync does not sync emails at all. Otherwise, it interfaced
very well even with Outlook 2000.
Transfers are also very straightforward. Once both your
desktop and notebook have the Intellisync File Transfer
program opened, connection will be automatically established
and everything else can be done with drag-&-drop simplicity.
Intellisync File Transfer With Drag-&-Drop Simplicity
Also packed in within the CD are recovery tools to reset the
notebook back to its pristine state. Just set in your BIOs to
boot from the CD, boot up from the CD, type ‘Recovery’ and
you are done! So the hassles of a Win98 reinstallation as well
as putting back the pieces of drivers are greatly reduced.
