The Portatec USB Sync provides the solution for synchronizing Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), PocketPC, and similar mobile devices to a computer system running under the Microsoft Windows Operating System platform. The Portatec USB Sync makes use of a driver in order to allow the host machine to correctly identify the type of device that is being connected to the USB (Universal Serial Bus) interface of the machine. The Portatec USB Sync works in conjunction with the Microsoft ActiveSync software application which must be present and running in the host machine to allow the synchronization process to initiate. Although the device may be detected automatically by the Plug and Play feature of modern operating system environments from Microsoft Corporation, it will still require the computer user to install the corresponding device driver to make it functional under the host machine's framework.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The process of synchronization that is supported by the Portatec USB Sync and its associated driver attempts to create a back up of the contacts list, calendar and other important contents of the mobile device directly in the host computer system. The software for the Portatec USB Sync also communicates with applications like Microsoft Outlook for the storage of contact details and electronic mail messages that may be stored in the mobile device. The synchronization process may work either as a back up or as a restoration in case the mobile device was formatted or data was lost. The software driver also supports the transfer of stored information to other supported devices using the Portatec USB Sync function. The driver allows the application to correctly identify the device and define the location in the device where information can be retrieved. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Portatec USB Sync errors before installing any driver updates.
