Thank you for reporting these issues and for not leaving a
negative review!! I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

data, because for a lot of people the cloud data will be the
In the default option cloud data and local data get's merged.
Doing this, Timelime detects duplicate data. Also If there is a
conflict (when local data has been edited on a device after turning
off sync) the user is prompted, and given choices to resolve the
If you want to completely replace local data when connecting to the
cloud, please go to Timelime's backup preferences first and choose
"Clear all data".
