I uploaded 213 titles maybe 2 years ago and managed to get those online.
Tonight, after a long long absence, I added another 90 or so titles.
Now I seem to have two separate lists, one online with 213 titles and the other on my PC with 90 titles.

I tried to sync but the two options offered are not clear: one option is to "overwrite"  the online DB with the local one and vice versa. I am terrified of loosing one of the lists. I just want all my titles together online and accessible from anywhere AND also on the PC.

This is not happening right now. I downloaded Invalos.4 but afraid to install.

So the PC program (3.9.x...? Since you haven't installed four yet?) only has 90 titles inside. Then the question is, how did you upload the 213? Using the software on your phone?

Are the 90 titles you added to the PC included of the 213 you previously uploaded online?

Once you answer the above questions, it may be possible to merge the two lists.


P.S.: If you currently have an older version on your PC, then it is fine to install DVD Profiler 4 there. The 90 titles will be kept and as long as you don't start an upload the 213 titles will remain online for now.

This is one way to do it:
1. Make a back-up of your local (90) collection to a back-up file (menu: File -> Backup...)
    Effectively you now have a local backup (90) and a online back-up with 213.
2. Restore the 213 from your online collection to your local PC collection
    (This will overwrite the 90, but that is why you needed the back-up made in step 1)
3. Open the restore option (menu: File -> Restore...) and select your back-up (90) file from step 1
4. ATTENTION Do NOT select full restore -- that would indeed overwrite the downloaded 213
5. Select partial restore and select all profiles that are in the list
6. Perform the restore, the 90 will be added to the 213
7. For safety, make a back-up but, of course, do not use the same name as the '90' back-up (!)
8. Once you're comfortable with your full local collection, now as intended, you could upload again to your online collection

Alternatively, you can create a new (!) database on your local PC (menu: File -> Open Database...) and download your online (213) collection into this new database. Create a local back-up file of the downloaded collection.
Then start playing around with the restore option (steps 5 and 6 above) to merge the two collections.

If it is important, say it. Otherwise, let silence speak.
