Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

1 Answer

I lost my calender during a Hotsync.

I synced my calender and lost most of my detailed calender because my computer over wrote my handheld. My computer for s0ome reason deleted a bunch of my calender details. I am not sure why but i may have been due to low hard drive space on my computer.
I sync almost every day so I wonder if my calender from a couple days ago is still on my computer or Treo 650 and if so can I restore it?
My other aspects of the sync were ok. Only most of the calender was lost. I interupted the sync and kept my old data from 2002 and earlier, but this is not much help to me now.

Hi mikeand,

you could check the calendar on your computer using Palm Desktop application. You could restore the data to handheld only if the Palm Desktop show the data you need.

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.

Trouble syncronizing palm TX

If you look on your handheld, tap the Hotsync icon once.
This will tell you the last time your Palm was synced.

Also if you hold your mouse over the Hotsync icon on your computer in the bottom right hand corner, this will tell you a last Hot sync date.

See if the two dates/times match up.

You can do a search on your computer for a "hotsynclog" file, this will give you a detailed list of all the processes that occurred during your sync. I would see if there are any errors listed there.

Also, you may want to make sure the Palm names match up with what you have on your Palm and the computer. When you click Hotsync on the Palm once, a name should appear in the upper right-hand corner. This name should also appear in the upper right-hand side when you upen Palm Desktop. There will be a white box with a name showing and an arrow pointing downwards. Make sure the two are the same as well and see if your information appears then.

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.

Tungsten E - HotSync with Outlook 2003

Don't skip the initial HotSync for secondary computer! Alright, I figured this one out on my own and figured I'd post what I'd learned so that others don't have to endure the teeth mashing, hair pulling, snarling frustration. (self induced as it may be) My experiences have taught me to not always trust a cookie cutter installation wizard...especially for custom app installations (ie: primary = home, secondary=work, total sync, no priority). So, I did not perform the initial sync during installation of the palm software fearing that the new installation would NOT recognize that the work computer was a secondary machine and resultantly wipe out the old palm data from the primary machine. Turns out, as I saw in many other unrelated posts, that it's difficult (if not impossible) to specify conduit direction to outlook 2003 outside of the initial sync (this prompted me to specifically look for conduit direction during install). So, this wizard is one I should have mistake...because of weak program design. By the way...once I specified sync with outlook during the initial sync, EVERYTHING works fine despite not having installed the two "imperative" conduit updates (they were uninstalled after several previous failed attempts at this). Hope this helps
