Question about Palm Tungsten T3 Handheld

1 palm + 2 computers = successful hotsync?

I want to hotsync my personal and professional calendars and address books to one Palm device (a Tungsten T3 ) as separate files/documents/blah, blah, on my Palm so I can keep personal and professional separate. Can I make that happen? I've been trolling through the postings, but I haven't seen this specfic posting listed. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Re: 1 palm + 2 computers = successful hotsync?

Yes and.. no.

It is possible to have one Palm synchronized to 2 PCs (I do this with my T3), just make sure that you don't end up with any "overlapping changes" - items that change on both machines.

However, since Syncing takes a full backup of the Palm, having two completely different sets of data on two different machines is complicated at best. If you are are not careful you could lose all your info by accident. One way to get around this would be to put everything on on the T3 and use categories to separate work and personal items - which is what I do.

However, if you are dead-set on keeping all of your work stuff in one place and all your personal stuff in another, I would recommend that you get a second T3.

My palm pilot battery died. When i replaced the battery all mhy phone #'s and calendar. were gone. Is there a way to restore them?


Hello.

Unfortunately, the only way to restore the address info and calendar is if you have been backing up your info from your Palm to your computer. Use the bluetooth (if you have) or connect the cradle to hotsync and transfer all your info back to your Palm.

Hope this helps.

Recover lost calendar events on a Palm z22


Hi suzbt:
JOY's answer, that you try to do a SYSTEM RESTORE on your Computer to get the data back is a really good one, that I did not think of! All manual instructions, and USER instructions on doing a SYNC with the Palm Z22, REPEAT : 1/ Always have a back up of the hard data 2/ Always check all transferred DATA on a SYNC, "Even if it states 'transfer Successful'", 3/ Even, if necessary, write down the data, ...
There are a few software programs to identify FILE problems on the Z22, listed on my web page:

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

and ways to recover corrupt data, but these are getting more and more difficult to find and use...

User comments on the SYNC indicate that any SYNC is a risky procedure, and backups and re-checking all data is necessary at all times.

I hope that the information on my web site comes in useful in keeping the Palm Z22 up and running!

good luck

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.

How do I copy address book and calendar from Tungsten E to Outlook?


In order to synchronize with Outlook you need to setup the replication to be with Outlook instead of Palm Desktop. On you cd there should be a third party piece of software (Chapura). Install the required software and follow the instructions.

Treo 650 (cingular) and Outlook calendar


Its the substandard conduits that come with the 650. Hi - my issues were different than yours,but similar in that bottom line, my calendar data wasn't syncing correctly with Outlook. I've been dealing with this problem for the past 4 weeks. Sprint's technical support was useless, as was palmone. For 5 years, I have successfully synced my Palm Smart phone to palm desktop at home, and outlook at work - (4 different phones, 4 different companies). It dawned on me - for the past 4 palm devices, I was provided Chapura conduits... The 650 didn't come with them... GUESS WHAT. I bought Chapura Professional XT and all the issues I was having (they were too copious and too weird to go into here) were solved, in one measly synchronization. ALL of them. Don't wast ANY more of your time... Navigate over to Chapura's website and get one of the conduit programs -= trust me... You'll be glad you did.

Cannot SYNC Outlook Calendar and Contacts


Probably one of these issues - your data is there but you are looking in the wrong place. I am trying to sync my outlook calendar and contacts via Hotsync on a Palm IIIc. It gives me the status of OK, but nothing shows up on the Palm. I have set the custom on Hotsync to desktop overwrites handheld, but still will not work. Thanks.
