When my computer goes down I restore the system from a windows image (made by win 7).  Restoring the image brings my computer back to that previous day (eg: day1).  That's good.  The problem though, is that somehow the Logos servers do not update my restored computer.  Instead my restored computer "updates" the cloud and I lose all changes I made since the restore date (day1).

Is there a way to restore Logos4 to current data and settings and layouts?  I know the Logos servers have the info, but how do you tell the servers that they have to update my computer, not the other way around?

Sync works on a timestamp, so what is newest should prevail, whether on your computer on in the "cloud". Exactly how far behind was the image?   What document(s) have not been sync'd to you

Thanks.  From your reply it seems it should be working- and that time-stamp idea is a good way to do it.

 I was quite sure that my recent layouts would have become available after syncing a few times.  Maybe I'm wrong about what I got done in 5 days.

Only the ones you named are sync'd (not the Snapshots).

I gave it some time. Now, to make sure it syncs.  I'm not sure if a Windows Image Restore changes the timestamp to the moment of restoring, making the restoration of the old o.s. "new".

Besides the snapshots (layouts) not being synced, are the hidden resources under tools-program settings getting synced?  I hid a lot of Perseus stuff, but now, after restoring, they are unhidden.
