1. INTRODUCTION [top]

Whenever you set up a synchronization task, the default connection method for targets relies on standard user access. If you need the ability to access system files or files owned by another user, you will need full administrative access. This assistant takes you through the steps to convert the selected tasks targets to use Admin Access. Note that ChronoAgent, cloud and file server connections cannot be changed and will, therefore, be ignored.

2. CHOOSE ASSISTANT [top]

From the ChronoSync Organizer window, choose 'Use a setup assistant.' This takes you to all of the assistants ChronoSync has to offer. For this guide, choose 'Admin Access.'
