General

Purpose of feature: managing restore from the Website database (Web DB) of your App database (App DB)


Local TOC

When to use (top)

When you - doing the last two tasks with the Account Manager - have:

- and you have done some uploads (with your Primary device), you are ready to download your tracks/notes from the Website, if needed.

A download replaces your database in the App (App DB) with an exact copy of the database at the Website (Web DB).

Download to a primary device (top)

If you tap   Download   on you primary device, two situations are considered:

Download to a clean primary device (top)

'Clean' means nothing needs to be updated. In this example, nothing was done after the Third upload example was completed:

Download to a clean primary device

After   Tap here if you want to proceed   you must confirm:

Download to a clean primary device, confirm

- and if you tap 'Yes', a receipt page is given:

Download to a primary device, receipt

Download to a dirty primary device (top)

Else, if anything was changed but not updated (in this example, a Track was created):

Download to a dirty primary device

The warnings shown depend on the changes done. If you in continue - spite of being warned - this dialog opens:

Download to a dirty primary device, warning

- and if you persist, a receipt page is given, exactly as above.

Download to a secondary device (top)

A device is set secondary by setting the Device is primary switch OFF. This can only be done on a 'clean' device, so compared with downloading to a primary device, there is only one situation here, after tapping   Download  :

Download to a secondary device

Confirmation and receipt page like above.

Volume of a download (top)

Since a download copies the whole Web DB over the network to the App DB, this could be time consuming. However, experience shows that download of more than one hundred tracks on a fast network takes only few seconds.
