the FeedReader Connect (FRC) forums don't have a seperate forum for support requests yet. I have some questions about FRC and how it works on my machine; I'd like to post them in the appropriate forum. For now I'll just ask within this topic.
- The regular FeedReader (FR) has a backup utility that allows me to get rid of unnecessary articles, thus making the FDB database file smaller and improving speed in FR. Is the same tool available for FRC?
- In FRC I've set up an FTP server to synchronize articles between two machines. I was under the impression that FRC also synchronizes the Read/Unread status of each article. However, when I mark an article as Read on one machine, close FRC and open it on the other machine the particular article is still marked as Unread. Is that regular behavior? If not, how do I correct this? How do I make sure that FRC synchronizes the Read/Unread status? Can I enforce an upload when I quit FRC?
- I don't understand the difference between the archive and the database. Can somebody explain it to me? I thought that an archive size of 50 items meant that FRC would delete the oldest article when the 51st arrived. That way the FDB database file would never contain more than 50 articles. However, I've set the archive to contain 50 items and still the database contains more than 300 articles. Is this exprected? If so, how do I make sure that my database will never contain more than e.g. 50 articles?
- If the database is not the same as the archive then what is the archive?
