BackupBuddy VFS Pro supports the LifeDrive?

I keep getting weird emails from BlueNomad that appear to be messages about being out of the office or no longer working for a company that are being forwarded by their listserver. Anyway, part of the message is as follows: ***BACKUPBUDDYVFS PROFESSIONAL UPDATE DETAILS*** BackupBuddy VFS Professional has been updated to version 3.1.4, which you may download here: http://www.bluenomad.com/bbvfs/prod_bbvfs_download.html This update is completely FREE for BBVFS 3.x customers and does not require you to re-enter your registration code if you have already registered; you can simply download and install it over your existing version. New features include: + added option to backup after HotSync + LifeDrive compatibility fixes Bug fixes include: - some password letters were being ignored - fixed problem of backing up files encrypted with the built-in Security app - blank screen/crash on startup - crashes during orphans processing - no scrollbar appeared when there were more than 10 checkpoints in the list - didn't fail gracefully when trying to restore corrupted backup files It is taking FOREVER to download so I cannot tell you whether it works or not.

Re: BackupBuddy VFS Pro supports the LifeDrive?

The readme info needs to be updated. The current readme is actually from the previous version and out of date. It should now look something like this.. (note newest info at top, previous version info underneath) BBVFS 3.1.4 New features include: + added option to backup after HotSync + LifeDrive compatibility fixes Bug fixes include: - some password letters were being ignored - fixed problem of backing up files encrypted with the built-in Security app - blank screen/crash on startup - crashes during orphans processing - no scrollbar appeared when there were more than 10 checkpoints in the list - didn't fail gracefully when trying to restore corrupted backup files BBVFS 3.1, 6.05 * Users may now select which card to backup to on devices with more than one card slot * Backup and Restore of T5 internal drive (!) is now supported * Backup of databases with records > 64K is supported, which will allow backup/restore of Photo/Videos on T3/T5/T650 and "VoiceDial" application * Advanced screen now adds new files to the backup set automatically * Wireless updating (via "About" screen) * Implemented a Palm Source Installer package * Many important bug fixes, including: Several issues relating to compression and encryption "Last Backup" being incorrectly set to "NEVER" No longer will soft-reset if no card is mounted on the T5 TUNGSTEN T5 SUPPORT This build includes further refinements to backup and restore on the T5 but we have confirmed with PalmOne that there are some issues with the T5 NVFS implementation that require a patch from to completely resolve. We recommend that all users download and install the T5 patch that is available here: http://www.palmone.com/us/support/d...ent5update.html Alternatively T5 users may want to try a program called "DBCache Tool" which you may download here: http://www.jade.dti.ne.jp/~imazeki/palm/DBcT/ LIFEDRIVE SUPPORT We are aware that this release contains some remaining issues with the new PalmOne LifeDrive and we are working to resolve them. Please contact support@bluenomad.com if you'd like to help with testing. BBVFS 3.07, 1.05 BackupBuddyVFS 3.07 is being released with preliminary support for the T5/Treo 650, although there are still some outstanding issues that we are continuing to investigate; specifically: * Power Users with a (near) full device especially may experience "out of memory" errors and/or random resets; restarting the backup or restore operation will usually allow it to reach completion. This is due to issues with the new "NVFS" file system on these new devices that developers cannot currently work around. We hope that palmOne will issue a patch to fix this, and we will continue to try and find a work-around. * Photos and Videos will not be backed up on the Treo 650/Tungsten T5.

Palm lifedrive wont' boot stuck on palm screen


This sounds like the issue where the LifeDrive is stuck in a loop. You can see how to break the device out of the system loop on the Palm Knowledge Base article (26419) located HERE.

Hope that helps get you up and running again!

Palm LifeDrive not charging


I had the exact same annoying problem. Easy fix though. Get the palm universal cradle. The power connector is either worn or loose and making partial contact. So when you use the normal adapter there might be a position that works but generally it won't. When you use the cradle the weight of the LD presses the contacts more and it will behave.

I went through a couple of chargers before getting the cradle and fixing it once and for all.

My Lifedrive won't boot up


Seems the LifeDrive Micro Drive is the killer on these Palms. Mine did the same thing and after extensive online research I found that the micro drive can be replaced with a Compact Flash card which is much more reliable. Apparently there are only certain CF cards that work with the LifeDrive though. I have found at least one retailer that sells a compatible CF preloaded with the Lifedrive software. The route I took for repair was to send it out to a guy that advertises his service on eBay. You send in the LifeDrive, he diagnoses it for $5, and can install the CF card with software for $89 (he waives the $5 if you have him fix it). I am looking forward to getting mine back in permanent working order! Here is the link:

Versamail Errors


hi first of all here are Support Knowledge Library links: http://kb.palmone.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE?New,Kb=PalmSupportKB,ts=Palm_External2001,case=obj(39328) there are two main reasons your mail will not get sent from VersaMail: 1) The outbound email server is not allowing your mail through. The server thinks your email is SPAM. Go to the section on Outgoing Mail server issues: http://kb.palmone.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?St=95,E=0000000000299122694,K=3846,Sxi=5,useTemplate=Case.tem,CASE=39211#outgoing 2) You have entered some of the information incorrectly in your setup and need to check for typos and verify the settings with your ISP or carrier. follow all the instructions home page: http://www.palm.com/us/support/lifedrive/ good luck

Setup Versamail with Outlook 2000


I use Versamail with my web-based, non-work email account (which is what it sounds like you have - web-based at least). I don't sync Versamail, I just use it to dial in to my account and download/send emails.

Lost all contacts, memos, tasks, after LifeDrive Update 1.0


This morning I downloaded LifeDrive Update 1.0, and when I did a HotSync afterwards, I got an error message saying, Handheld Tasks application database version not supported. Handheld Notes application database version not supported. Now my contacts, memos, tasks, calendar entries and possibly other items are all gone!! This is the core data that is the reason why I use a PDA! I would be totally distraught, except that the data does still seem to exist in Outlook on my PC. I am running Outlook 2002, SP3 on a WinXP machine. Can anyone help to fix this problem? thanks,

Lifedrive calendar - private items


Fix in Outlook?? Isn't there a way to keep private appts from showing in Outlook? Perhaps you could change the setting on that side? Did you have trouble getting your LifeDrive to sync w/Calendar in the first place? I've managed to get all BUT calendar syncing (and it's the MOST IMPORTANT part of Outlook that needs to sync!!)... any advice?
