How to avoid updating the gypsy but still being able to transfer files. Only for windows users

Yes - you can do this but only when you are using windows. Unfortunately does not work for Mac
When you connect the powered on gypsy to the computer  and then run gypsy sync then you will not be able to avoid updating , as this is the first thing that the sync does
But if you instead run the gypsy sync. Yes - it will throw up an error that there is no Gypsy connected . But then connect the G and switch it on - then  it will just refresh the data and not do updates.
I always do it this way as I do not want the update to take me unawares.
When you want to update just drop down the File menu and press check updates and lo presto - updates !!

As I have mentioned before only works for windows users. Mac users - try blocking the internet and see if that works.
