Apple Newton Connection Kit for Macintosh

The Newton Connection Kit allows your Macintosh to communicate with your Newton. You can backup and restore Newton data, examine the data on your Macintosh and download Newton software applications to your Newton.

The first time the Newton Connection Kit synchronises your Newton with your Macintosh, all the information from your Newton will be copied onto your Macintosh's hard drive. After the first time, synchronising will copy only new or changed information from Newton to your Macintosh or vice versa. When synchronisation is completed, the identical information exists both in the Newton folder on your Macintosh's hard drive and in your Newton.

When you synchronise, all information you deleted since the previous synchronisation is stored in an Archive file on the Macintosh. The entire file left by the previous synchronisation will be stored as a file called "Backup."
