About syncing music, pictures, videos, and documents

BlackBerry Link lets you keep the media files and documents on your device and your computer in sync so that you can relive your memories or share them with friends wherever you are.

By default, automatic sync is turned on for the new music, pictures, videos, and documents on devices that are linked with your computer. You must manually set the sync relationships for the music, pictures, videos, and documents that existed on your computer or on your device before you set up BlackBerry Link. After you manually sync your existing files, updates automatically sync between your computer and your device for anything new that you add.

If you don't want to automatically sync all of your media files and documents, you can turn off automatic sync. Instead, you can manually drag individual files or collections of files between your computer and your device. If automatic sync is turned off, BlackBerry Link doesn't sync changes to the files that you manually sync between your computer and your device. If there are changes to the files you have manually synced, you must re-sync those files.

If your device loses its connection to BlackBerry Link (when connected by either by USB cable, or over a Wi-Fi network), your music, pictures, videos, and documents continue to sync when your connection is re-established.
