How to merge or replace your data between the USB portable version and the Windows desktop version?

Once you’ve created your portable version, you’ll want to make sure that any changes you’ve made to the database - on your USB or your desktop - are synchronized and up-to-date with each other. The following three options give you the flexibility to decide how the data is merged.

You can:

  • merge both databases,

  • replace the database on the portable device (USB) with the version that is on your computer,

  • replace the database on your computer with the version that is on the portable device.

Important note: The Sticky Password USB portable password manager version can NOT synchronize data directly with your cloud account (StickyAccount), i.e. with your other devices (macOS computers, Android or iOS smartphones and tablets). It also does NOT support local WiFi sync. The merge or replacement can be done only locally between the USB portable version connected to an USB port and your standard Windows installation of Sticky Password on that same computer.
