Once Options are selected, they will be remembered (unless hard reset or total loss of battery power), so there is no need to select Options each time iPAQ Backup is used. In the case of hard reset or complete loss of Battery power, the options setting will require resetting.

Trying to backup my 2415 iPaq. It used to save .exe files. Now, it only saves .pbf files. What's the difference - or does it make any difference at all? Also, I have a second iPaq that does NOT...

an .exe file is an EXEcutable file, it is the file that starts a program. It is not the backup data, but it may be the program that captures it.

Your .pbf files are indeed backup data files by Paragon backup and recovery program.

So, you would open Paragon using its .exe file and it backs up the data to .pbf files. To restore the files, you would open Paragon, and point to the last .pbf file or files to restore.

And yes, you could have Paragon Backup and Recovery on both machines and save the backups to a USB memory stick. What is on the memory stick can be accessed by Paragon on both machines. Make sure it is data only, rather than system files unless each computer is absolutely identical in model and spec.

Wish to reset to factory spects. Echo uncontroled Feedback, Volume keys not working.

There are 2 ways to bring up the Restore function. The first is to turn on your laptop and as soon as you see the Dell logo press the Right Hand CTRL key and the F11 key at the same time. If your laptop was setup this way then you should see the Restore program run from the hidden restore partition of your hard drive.

If the above does not start the Restore process they your laptop was setup with the Dell DataSafe Restore system then follow these steps:

1) Shut down the Computer.

2) Turn on the Computer and start pressing the "F8" Key on the first Dell logo. Keep on pressing the "F8" key on first Dell screen until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.

3) Highlight "Repair Your Computer" and hit ENTER.

4) Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.

5) Enter your Password and click OK.

6) On Choose a Recover Tool Window
Select: Dell DataSafe Restore and Emergency Backup.

7) You should see the following menu:
a. Restore computer and preserve my new or changed files
b Select other System Backup and more options
8. Select: Select other System Backup and more options
You get:
a. Restore my computer
b. Backup Files and folders

Select: Restore my computer..
Confirm the restore and continue..
Select: Factory Image restore

9) Choose Restore without preserving new or changed files and click on Next.

10) Click on Continue.

Your system should then run the DataSafe Restore and your laptop will be brought back to the same setup it had when you first turned it on. This will of course wipe out any data you have saved to the laptop as well as any extra programs you have installed. If you updated any of your drivers you will have to back to the Dell Support site and download and re-install the drivers.

HP-iPaq 2215 battery replacement

Hi, Jim--
When you take the battery out of an IPAQ you're performing a hard reset. I've got 4 different IPAQs and it does the same thing on all of them.
My solution was to back the IPAQ up using the internal backup program (back up to IPAQ storage) and then replace the battery, then restore the last backup.
Saved me a heck of a lot of time. It's been hard to remember to back up everytime I add a program or change data majorly, but it's probably the best thing to do.

Ipaq 4100 problem syncronizing with outlook on new laptop

you are now using outlook 2003 , probably cache , this means all the email is on your laptop. when you sync it will sync all the email (thousands). initialise your ppc (back to factory default). set up the sync via usb cable. then sync via bluetooth . then you are fully sync. now setup an auto backup of your email data (daily). if after some time , you have sync problem again , initialise the ppc, restore from backup and you are back to sync (last full backup). try this , you will never need to do it all again.

Data erased from iPAQ hx4700

If an ipaq loses power , then all data in RAM is lost. It's important to keep it charged. It's also important to do regular backups..... so there are two backup options - one is thru Activesync which will backup to your PC and one is the IPAQ's own backup program which will backup to the IPAQ FILE STORE (area in ROM) or a SD card. I do the Activesync backup every time I sync and then the IPAQ backup about once a week or immediately before a system change. Activesync backup ------------------------ Here is a guide which best explains it this guide suggests doing a full backup, but it's fine to do an incremental backup each sync - this means that only changes will be added to your backup and makes the whole process much quicker. IPAQ Backup ----------------- So under Programs is a program called IPAQ Backup. The default location is IPAQ FILE STORE which is an area in ROM and is not lost thru a power failure nor hard reset. You may also choos to backup to a SD card - a full backup will need roughly 20MB. So in this backup procedure, if you click on 'Browse' you can choose a SD card. A restore can then be performed from the IPAQ FILE STORE or SD card (depending on which location you chose) and so if you are away from your PC, this will be no problem. A restore this way , rather than thru Activesync is also much quicker, so if you have a choice go this route.

HW6515 Phone Option Screen fail to launch

Sounds like it might be time to test things in a vanilla fresh setup.......... -Backup your system via iPAQ backup to an SD card (or ipaq file store if you have room) Warning, following will delete all main memory and set back to factory default! -do a hard reset (hold in power and reset for 20 seconds) -Test programs again, see if it acts the same. You can then restore your setup via iPAQ backup again if needed. You can also poke around the following site for suggestions on tested task managers and today screen apps. (I use HandySwitcher)
