Question about Palm LifeDrive Handheld
I have been using Palm Desktop for quite a long time and have not synched a handheld for at least two months. The other day, I went to my Palm Desktop Contact list and discovered that half of the 1,500 contacts were missing.
This wasn't a random loss; the names starting with N through Z were gone. I still had/have A through M. I had no luck when I renamed the current file and made the backup file take its place.
(1) Any idea how this could happen?
(2) Is there ANYTHING I can do to retrieve the data? (I can't synch it with my handheld, which has not been charged and therefore holds no data). I also tried a Search for other possible Palm Contact files, but had no luck there, either.
Ideas anybody? Thanks.
Same problem. Still can't find a solution from Palm.com. What causes this corruption/deletion? anyhbody have ideas? Any data techs out there?
Missing files can be reason of power interruption or virus attack (less likely). However you may try to sync back if you have used Palm Desktop before.

I'm afraid I've found the solution to my problem (Dr Ben above). My desktop hard drive was packing up. Hope nothing so cataclysmic is causing your problems.
