Ok, I have 2 different sync data, one on my mac on on my pc they are 2 totally diffrent they have diffrent history etc... I was wondering if I sync both devices to one account will the second non mmain sync data be changed to the main one? or can i keep them both seperate on the same account?

Now I understand.

If you set up Sync in both computers and you decide to share let's say Bookmarks. You would see bookmarks from BOTH computers on EACH computer. For example:

At the moment: - Computer 1 has bookmarks X, Y and Z - Computer 2 has bookmarks A, B and C

After the sync: - Computer 1 has bookmarks X, Y, Z, A, B and C - Computer 2 has bookmarks X, Y, Z, A, B and C

I hope it's clear.

The purpose of Sync is to make sure that your data is the same in all your devices (computers, phones, tablets, etc). You can customize what information you want to share between devices but I'm not sure what is the reason to keep your devices synced but separated.

Can you provide some clarification?

Because I dont want one data to overwrite my other data if you can understand. So im afraid if I sync the 2 computers to one account, one computers sync data will be replaced by the other computer.
