    I've changed this from "how to update to the new sync" to simply "sync your firefox bookmarks..."

    "Old Sync" went away as of September 30 so there is now only one Sync. Alluding to two versions of Sync will just be confusing to new Sync users.

    On second thought, we already have an article on how to set up Sync. We probably don't need this "update" article. Archiving it then before it confuses any users. If anyone disagrees, chime in and we can talk about it.

    This article has a "See also" link to How do I recover my old Sync bookmarks?. Since "See also" links are reciprocal, that article is linking to this archived article.

    I went ahead and edited the Description for the How do I recover my old Sync bookmarks? article to remove this article from "Related documents" which removed both "See also" links.

    P.S. The How do I recover my old Sync bookmarks? article probably needs to be archived as well, since it has this "Needs change" entry:

    Old Sync server won't be available indefinitely. Need to archive this when system is deactivated.

    Alice I agree, do we need one for the current sync? I have not seen too many loosing bookmarks, unless they wiped their computer.

    Hi, rachel.

    I don't use sync but the How do I recover my old Sync bookmarks? article is about accessing your old sync data. It then links to this article to explain how to transfer your synced bookmarks and other data from the old sync server to the new one.

    Joni (or another person familiar with sync) should really do a review of all sync articles, to see which should be archived or updated.
