When two PCs are synced does all info from both PCs end up on both PCs or is just the data from the PC that initiates sync go to the PC that is paired with it?
I have an old PC has lots of bookmarks that I want to sync with a new PC. Unfortunately, the old PC will not display captcha so I cannot use it to initiate a sync account (no captcha display is a separate problem that I have had for a long time on the old PC and none of the fixes in the forums solve that problem.) The new PC displays captcha OK (same OS, same configs as old PC but it works - go figure.) If I initiate sync from the new PC and then pair with old PC will the bookmarks, etc. from the old PC migrate to the new PC? Or will the handful of bookmarks I have already set up on the new PC migrate to the old PC? Or will both PCs end up with everything? Seems like a simple question but there is nothing in the forums or Help pages about what actually happens when two (or more) devices and paired.

hello ralph, i think the short answer is: both pcs will end up with everything.
You can set what happens with the first sync via the Sync Options.
- Merge this device's data with my Sync data
- Replace all data on this device with my Sync data
- Replace all other devices with this device's data
The default is "Merge this device's data with my Sync data"
