Sync Framework 2.1 Sync only subset of database RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

        I have been using the Sync framework 2.1 to synchronize SQL Server CE 3.5 databases on & PC & a Windows Mobile 5.0 device (I copy the file from the device, sync then copy back). This works well but with very large files the transfer to & from the device can take 15-20 minutes which is unacceptable. The application is for asset management where often a user only requires a subset of the full database to work on so I have tried syncing 2 sdf files then deleting surplus data on the file before copying it to the Windows Mobile 5 device. Now when I copy back & sync the sdf files any new additions or updates seem to merge fine but areas that were not included in the subset of data disappear. Is there any way I can ignore the deletes when synchronizing the 2 sdf files?
