Restoring system settings after an OS migration

How does inSync client help with OS migration?

If your organization mandates operating system migration, you can use inSync client to restore your backup data and system settings. However, inSync client restores only system settings only if your administrator enabled system settings backup for you. 

You can restore system settings at the time of activating inSync client. Because inSync only backs up system settings that are modified, a restore of system settings only involves modified settings.

At the time of inSync client activation, you can choose to restore system and application settings. After a restore completes, you must restart your device to allow the changes to reflect. 

Note: Before initiating system and application settings restore, ensure that the operating system and the applications on the new device and the device from which settings are being restored match the supported restores requirements.
