I synced my new SPV M700 with my work PC today, it did it again and created duplicates of every single item in my Contacts (that took at least 10 mins), it’s still working on the Tasks, and Calendar (I dread to think what it will do given the size of my Calendar!).

I did tell it to combine items but that’s because I don’t want it to lose anything… But now I’d have to spend several hours de-duping…

I’ve found several tools which I’m going to try in the vain hope that they’ll sort the problems out..

Update: The DupeDeDupe software sorted my Contact out free of charge, and it’s probably quicker just to change the view in Outlook and remove the Calendar items by hand!
