    For years I have used MPE to sync phones to Outlok PST files. It runs as an android app and on windows desktop. It populates the default gmail account calendar and contact buckets on the phone. It syncs changes between outlook and the phone. I have never synced to Google but of course do have an account for the phone .

    I never use outlook anymore so it is more of a backup now, phone to outlook pst.

    I also now have multiple android devices like tablets and miss having the data there.

    If there is anyone using MPE curious if anyone has turned on google sync to also have the data in your Google account so devices could share. In the past just using phone and outlook made sense but perhaps no more.

    Not sure if this is doable going forward or if I just need to move wholesale.
    Thanks,

    Ive used MPE in the past, and used Google sync at the same time. They don't conflict with each other. If the devices all sync to the same Google account, they'll all stay in sync, otherwise you'll have to use something like MPE to keep them synced to each other.

    @Rukbat,
    Thanks!!!! Phone and tablet are on same google account. If I could bother you with a few more details....
    How much history does Google sync for the calendar? I have a long long time in there. Is this a setting on the Google web account?

    Would this process make sense? Sync phone to outlook via MPE as always.
    Turn on Google sync for phone which would populate the empty Google calendar and contact buckets in cloud.

    Then, if I turn on google sync on for the tablet, it should sync that same data to the tablet?

    And any later change to phone or tablet syncs to cloud and would eventually sync to outlook when I periodically run MPE to sync there?

    I back my photos and texts too with mpe but could turn on Google photo backup too. Being sucked into the collective!

    Thanks a lot,

    @Rukbat,
    Just a polite bump, wonder if you had any input on my questions. I feel I am very close to finally putting this transition/backup plan together and just need a few more nuggets of info.

    Thanks!
