MissingSync replaced Hotsync; I want it reversed

How can I get rid of MissingSync's conduits and replce Hotsync's? I somehow erased Memos and Contacts while syncing with MS. I want HS back, but dont know where any of the conduits are (maybe they're there?), but when I click HS in the Dock, it has the queston mark, and it all happened with MissingSync. I'm afraid just putting MS in the Trash will not fix HS, and disabling MS for syncing does not work. The only reason I downloaded it was for Internet Sharing via BT (remember earlier thread, LifeDrive with BT and WiFi; 72 with BT)

Re: MissingSync replaced Hotsync; I want it reversed

I think you are being a little rash by jumping to get rid of it without even looking at information like this. But if you are determined to switch back to Palm Hotsync, I would completely uninstall TMS (it has an uninstaller, and there are also instructions on the Mark/Space site), delete your current install of Palm Desktop (set your User Data file aside first), and then reinstall Palm Desktop as root and restore your data file. There might be an easier way if you could locate the disabled conduits, such as by using the Find command (could they possibly be in /Library/Application Support/Palm Hotsync/Disabled Conduits/ by any chance?), but if you don't know what you're doing, and it kind of seems like you don't, I would probably recommend just starting fresh.

I updated the Palm m130 to Z22. I lost all my addresses on the m130 whe installing the Z22. Is there anyway to retrieve the lost file?!


The solution to this problem is.. if the m130 still has all the data, then

you need to perform a custom hotsync to overwrite all files on the computer

  1. Click on the ‘Hotsync Manager’ icon and choose ‘Custom’.
  2. Highlight the ‘Datebook’ conduit and click ‘Change’.
  3. Select ‘Handheld overwrites desktop’ and click ‘OK’.
  4. Repeat these steps for the ‘Address’, ‘Todo’, ‘Memo’ and ‘System’ conduits.
  5. ‘Install’ and ‘Install Service Templates’ should be ‘Enabled’.
  6. Perform a ‘Hotsync’ operation by pressing the button on the Hotsync® Cradle, or Cable.

Now that the files are on your computer you need to sync them into the new palm

Same steps but this time Desktop Overwrites handheld

  1. Click on the ‘Hotsync Manager’ icon and choose ‘Custom’.
  2. Highlight the ‘Datebook’ conduit and click ‘Change’.
  3. Select ‘Desktop overwrites Handheld’ and click ‘OK’.
  4. Repeat these steps for the ‘Address’, ‘Todo’, ‘Memo’ and ‘System’ conduits.
  5. ‘Install’ and ‘Install Service Templates’ should be ‘Enabled’.
  6. Perform a ‘Hotsync’ operation by pressing the button on the Hotsync® Cradle, or Cable.

Is Palm Desktop Required when using Outlook?


to be able to hotsync with outlook u need to install the Palm Dektop, and while installing check the option synchronize with outlook. this will install conduits that make the hotsync with outlook possible, and don't forget that only the conatcts, calendar, memos and tasks are synchronized with outlook, the rest (if it is interisting u ) will be synchronized with the PDS. good luck

Zire 72 Won't Sync Notes


I feel your pain as I'm having even more problems than you, see my post. However, having learned quite a bit about this topic, I suggest ensuring the Hot Sync is set for the desktop to overwrite the PDA as opposed to PDA overwriting the desktop, which sounds like what's happening. That's the only suggestion I have. Hope it works out for you.

Hot sync does not work


"PLEASE SET SYNCHRONIZATION OPTION ENABLE SYNC WHEN OUTLOOK IN UI IN ORDER TO SYNC IN OFFLINE MODE" Just go to your Hotsync Manager icon Click Custom Click each Outlook conduit ex. Calendar Outlook Click Change Click Settings Check the Box that says Enable Synchronization when Outlook is Offline Then do same process for Contacts, Tasks and Memos. Wherever your updated data is..make sure you set Action of conduit to example: Desktop Overwrites HH (if your OUTLOOK has the most updated data.) Hope that resolves your problem.

Problem syncing with two computers


The HotSync Manager was not designed to work this way. While it may seem like a good idea to do what you are doing, I would never consider doing it. HotSync was designed to be a one-to-one relationship between a set of data on your PC and a set on your handheld. You are giving contrary messages to each PC by using it this way. If you synch to an exchange server (via your Outlook account) you can get away with doing this because PocketMirror or the palmOne Outlook conduits and other conduits have settings you can make to notify HotSync that you are 'two-timing' :-). However if you synch to Outlook in work and then to Palm Desktop at home (I suspect this is your scenario), I disrecommend this. I recommend setting the Home PC to be a slave. That is, I set the conduits at home to be handheld overwrites desktop for the four personal information conduits - Calendar, Contacts, To Dos and Memos. Then when I am at home if I want to change some data, I add it to the handheld not on the PC. That way you have a kosher set of data that is up to date on the handheld and on your work PC. When you synch to the home PC, this data is cloned to the home PC from the handheld. You can continue as you are but you will always have some uncertainty on your data integrity. Losing precious contacts or not showing up for a key appointment is a bad deal.

MS Outlook syncs calendar, notes but not contacts


Click on the hotsync icon in your system tray and then click "custom". That will bring up the list of things you are configured to sync with (conduits). For each of the ones you have problems with, click that conduit and then make sure it's set to sync the way you want...desktop overrides, handheld overrides, syncronize, etc. Potentially you have some of them selected as "do nothing". What shows up when I click custom from hotsync are the following Outlook Conduits: Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos. If you don't have those showing up, you need to update your Outlook conduits on your PC. If you have them, click to select the problem conduit, then click "change" and select what you want to have happen.
