Sync Connect


Sync Connect is a software program developed by I-O DATA DEVICE, INC. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 8 files and is usually about 10.46 MB (10,964,596 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 71% of users of Sync Connect come from Japan, it is also popular in the United States.
