Help HTC Sync - Where's my stuff?


Android Enthusiast
As a recent convert from Windows Mobile with ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center, I chose the Evo expecting HTC Sync to work at least as well to keep everything synchronized.

I have since learned to be sure I have a fresh Outlook backup before I start, because HTC Sync has wiped out the calendar and contacts on my phone and PC before.

I can usually get People and Calendar to sync okay now, but do the Bookmark and Gallery syncs work for anyone? I have both turned on, but never see any results.

According to the program, Gallery is supposed to copy my "device Camera shots to PC". "File will be saved to /My Photos/Device Camera Shots". I've searched my whole PC and don't have either of those directories anywhere. If I create them, will it work? If so, where should they be created?

I have it set to "Sync all bookmarks from Firefox", but when I open the Internet app on the Evo, there are no bookmarks. The browser acts like it's Opera, but there is no Help/About to confirm that. Is there another browser that HTC Sync is copying them to?


Hi. I had problems with sync DesireZ and firefox bookmarks.
1. It will sync bookmarks from the device only to the HTC Bookmarks folder in FF.
2. You must close all FF browser windows before syncing
Hope that helps?

Thanks Hareti, with Firefox closed, I now have eight bookmarks on my Evo and an "HTC bookmarks" folder in Firefox. How did you ever figure that out? I wanted and expected it to copy my Firefox bookmarks to the Evo, but I guess I can live with this.

Does anyone's camera shots sync to their PC, and if so, where are they?

Just in case anyone else is wondering where to find the synced photos, they are at
C:\Users\[My User Name]\Documents\My Photos\Device Camera Shots
Thanks for that! :D On my Windows 7 box, that path also translates to [My User Name]\My Documents\My Photos\Device Camera Shots.

I have show hidden files and folders on now, so I guess that's why I couldn't find it before.
