    Hi! I’ve just installed Akrutosync and set it up to sync over home wifi. Calendar has synced to phone but only 610 of 1703 contacts have transferred to phone. Sync screen on PC says sync failed after 580 contacts.

    I tried to force sync from the phone and it added 5 more then failed again. I did it again and it added 5 more again. And so on. How do I get it to complete the sync? phone and laptop are both connected to the wifi fine.

    Hi David,

    Please reply via email to
    Please include the original message that you posted in Akruto Forums.

    Before we proceed, we need to verify the following:
    1. The latest screenshot of AkrutoSync’s current screen from your computer

    2. What is the make and model of your phone? If it is an Android, what is the Android version (Settings > About phone/device > Android version)? If it is a Windows phone, what Windows version? If it is an iPhone or an iPad, what is the iOS version (Settings > General > About > Version)?

    3. Are you using Outlook 2002/2003/2007/2010/2013/2016/Office 365 with Outlook 2013/2016 on a Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 computer? Is it a desktop or a laptop? Wired directly to the router or connected via Wi-Fi?

    If you are not familiar with ‘how to take a screenshot and attaching it to the email’, please use this guide:
    1. Press the “Print Screen” key on your keyboard (also labeled as “Prt Sc” or “PrtScn”). This will capture an image of your entire screen.
    Or you can Click on the AkrutoSync window then hold down the Alt button and press Prt Sc. This will take a picture of the “active” window on your screen. An image of the window will be copied to the clipboard. You will not receive any confirmation that the screenshot has been taken.

    2. Paste the screenshot. Once you have made the screenshot, you will need to paste it to an editor. Open Paint from the Accessories section in your Start menu or search Paint in Windows Search. With a new blank canvas open in Paint, press the Ctrl and V buttons together to paste the image onto the canvas. You can also right-click on the canvas and select Paste.

    3. Save the screenshot. Click File, then Save to set the name and file type of the image. You can select the JPG or PNG file type. Select and remember the save location, then click Save.

    4. Attach the screenshot that you saved as a reply to this email.

    Alternatively, you can refer to the guide for taking a screenshot here:

    For AkrutoSync version 5.2:
    The new version allows the program to be minimized into the Taskbar Notification Area (near the system clock).

    Also added a capability to take screenshots right from AkrutoSync to make support’s life easier. To take a screenshot, the small icon in the top left corner of the AkrutoSync window (or press Alt+Space). A menu will open; select “Take screenshot”. You will be offered to select a file name and location for the screenshot file. The default location for the screenshot file is on the desktop and the default file name is AkrutoSync Screenshot.png.

    We will wait for your response.

    Many thanks for your extremely helpful reply, Alf. I’m happy to say that sync started again the next time I started up my laptop and it has completed successfully. So everything is fine now and I am pleased with Akruto sync.
