Question

New to Sync, I set up the sync account in my new laptop and linked it to my main computer; now worry Sync will wipe out info on main computer. What do I do?

Not knowing anything about Sync but enthusiastic about its advantages, I followed the directions for setting up a Sync account in my new laptop. Then realized I should have started with my main computer which has all the data that I want to transfer to the new one. However, Firefox won't let me set up the sync account in my main computer because it says I already have an account. It gave me a code to link the main computer to the new one, and I did this. Now I'm afraid to sync for fear that this will wipe out the info in my main computer rather than transferring it to the new one. Is this true, and if so, how can I start over and get Firefox to let me establish the sync account in my main computer?
