We've transitioned to a new documentation portal to serve you better. Access the latest content by clicking here.


To reactivate inSync client, you can add your laptop as a new device or replace it with an existing laptop.  


Before you begin

Before you reactivate inSync Client, ensure the following:

  • You have the inSync Server URL and your inSync account credentials.
    • If you do not remember the email address for your inSync account, you can refer to the inSync account activation email.
    • If you do not remember the password for your inSync account, you can contact your inSync administrator. Your inSync administrator will reset the password for your inSync account. You will receive your new password in an email. After you log on to the inSync client by using your new password, you are prompted to reset your password.
