Show TPO Basics
Adjusting Sync Policies using Show TPO is a streamlined way of adjusting which quality of photo you want on the device you are currently using.

The Show TPO icons display the quality of photo that is currently on that device. If a Sync Policy has been changed but not yet fulfilled, the icon will display with an orange bar across the top, notating that the device needs to sync.
Adjusting Sync Policies
Show TPO makes adjusting Sync Policies for the device you are using easy. Simply select the current quality icon in the top right of the photo or folder and you will be given the option to adjust the Sync Policy for that selected media.
By selecting the icon on a selected media (photo or video) you can adjust the Sync Policy for that specific media. By selecting the icon on a folder, you will be adjusting the Sync Policy for all enclosed media for that folder.
Additionally, you can adjust the Sync Policy simultaneously for multiple files by multi-selecting them. You cannot multi-select folders.
Mixed Sync Policies
Mixed Sync Policies, distinguished with the above icon, can be found specifically on folders. This icon notates that a folder has media inside with differing Sync Policies. For example, your folder may have a photo set to want Previews but a video set to want Originals. The folder containing those files will have the star icon to designate this.
Disable Show TPO
- Open Mylio.
