HOWTO: ActiveSync deletes ListPro .CLF files during synchronization

AA-01749

There is an issue with ActiveSync for Windows Mobile 5.0 that may cause your ListPro file to be deleted or placed in your recycle bin on your desktop PC when ActiveSync synchronizes.

The latest version of ListPro tries to address this problem with the installed My Lists.clf file, but if you have created your own lists on your Pocket PC and then set up ActiveSync to synchronize, the problem may still occur.

To resolve this problem:

  1. Remove the ListPro file from both the My Documents folder on the device and from the synchronized files folder on the desktop.
  2. Push the Sync button in ActiveSync to force ActiveSync to synchronize.
  3. Copy the ListPro file back into the synchronized files folder on the desktop.
  4. Push the Sync button in ActiveSync to synchronize and copy the ListPro file to the device again.
