Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Deleted appointments I lost several moonths of appointments on my PDA but not all initially. Then I downloaded a backup from Sandisk in the handheld which didn't do the job fully and provided many duplicated files. There was a large period of time missing still. In trying to sync the machine again I had to change the name of the device. Now almmost all the older appointments are gone on it but NOT in Microsoft Outlook! And there is plenty of memory available on the portable. When I change the rules in the sync area from device to server in the sync window, nothing changes when I sync it. What can I do?

My computer crashed. I have a backup of all my Palm files but am having trouble recovering them. Does anyone have instructions on how to restore backup files on a Palm Tungsten E2?


Palm backups are located in the following directory: C:\Program Files\Palm\username>\ED\Backup\

When you HotSync a PDA that has undergone a hard reset, HotSync will compare the two devices. When it sees that the PDA is empty, it will attempt to reload any backup that exists on the PC. Once this data is reloaded, the PDA will ask to do a soft reset. This is simply a restart of the device and doesn't affect any of the newly installed data. This returns the PDA to working order, with all the data and programs functioning as they were before.

Hope this resolves your problem.

Visor Deluxe does not start


The procedure below shows how to reset the PDA to factory settings after backing up all your personal data.
After backing up your data with HotSync, perform a hard reset, this will erase all applications and returns your device to its factory default settings.

To perform a hard reset:
1. Hold down the power button on the front panel of the PDA.
2. While holding down the power button, use a paper clip to press the reset button.
3. Release the power button.
4. You will get a message warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on the PDA, do the following:
Press the top scroll button on the front panel
to complete the hard reset and display the startup screen.
If you press any other button you will do a soft reset, that will not fix the problem. In that case restart the procedure.
5. After doing hard reset the unit will return to the initial factory state. All third party installed applications will be deleted, and setting will be reported to factor default.




Connect to HotSync and do a backup of the PDA, then do hard reset on Palm.

If the PDA is not detected by Hotsync, then there is an additional problem.

To troubleshoot problems given by third party application you do a backup, then rename the backup folder containing third party application data to Backup.old, and do hard reset.

After that you start restoring applications from backup.old one at the time, when one application jams the Palm, that is the responsible for the error message.

Procedure is described here.

My computer suddenly lost all the data for the palmone zire 72s. Can't figure out why. Don't want to sync in case it deletes all the data from the pda.


First, install Desktop Manager on another computer and sync, just as a backup.

Then, before you sync on YOUR desktop, look for the option on the Desktop Manager to copy from the PDA to the desktop only, so you won't lose your data.

Then, after the sync, change the Desktop Manager back to 2-way sync.

Hope this helps.

Hope this helsp.

They are probably in a format that the pda can not handle.

Lost calendar on hotsync

The information is unfortunately lost.

Unless you synced the palm on another computer, the palm only can back up the information when synced.

So if you sync it and the computer overwrites the handheld, the information never made it to the computer and thus cannot be restored.

The only thing you could check would be the backup folder in the palm directory under your profile name. Palm puts all of the .prc/.pdb files in there when you sync.

Lost almost all Tasks when hotsyncing LifeDrive

sounds to me like your To Do (Tasks) database became corrupted somehow. Unless you have a PC backup or have XP's rollback feature turned on, I think your data may be gone.
