Microsoft ActiveSync provides support for synchronizing data between a Windows-based desktop computer and Windows Mobile devices. Using time stamps and user preferences, the synchronization process tracks data changes on both the computer and the Windows Mobile device, then transfers the appropriate data so that each machine has the most recent versions. Outdated or unwanted data is discarded. Windows Mobile provides support for ActiveSync version 4.2 and later.
