Lifedrive calendar - private items

I've had a Palm C for a while, synching to my home computer for everything, but syching to work for limited things (avantgo, outlook calendar only). My mom-in-law wants my wife's T, my wife wants my C and so I got a lifedrive to allow them all to shuffle on down the line. With my Tungsten C, it used Chappura and had an option to NOT synch calendar items marked as private. I need that feature (because it's none of my companies business what private calender items i have, and if I sync them to our exchange server they're there for all to see). My problem is that when I set up the lifedrive, there was no such option on Outlook calender synch (under settings). The help for that shows such an option, though the help doesn't match the actual screen in other ways as well (help doesn't show a couple of options that are on the screen). So - anyone have any ideas? I don't like losing functionality when I'm supposed to be upgrading to a newer, better palm.

Re: Lifedrive calendar - private items

You could get this functionality back if you switched to PocketMirror Pro XT from chapura. I know this will cost you $ but it will do the job. The conduits supplied with LifeDrive are the palmOne conduits - they replaced PocketMirror Standard a few years ago for palmOne products.

Re: Lifedrive calendar - private items

Unless I'm greatly mistaken, even if the item is marked as private, it is still stored in the exchange server. Since these are personally private (as opposed to business private I guess) I don't want the entries on the work network at all. I definitely could make them not be visible from my Outlook, but they'd still be findable on the server. I had trouble getting my lifedrive to sync on my main home computer period, had to reset it a few times to get it to behave (but I'm not sure it's not the usb ports there). As far as sync'ing to my work computer & outlook, that went amazingly smoothly. I did have Outlook open when I did the install, so that it would find the exchange profile and all that. I'm afraid that's the only advice I can give - sorry!

Re: Lifedrive calendar - private items

Fix in Outlook?? Isn't there a way to keep private appts from showing in Outlook? Perhaps you could change the setting on that side? Did you have trouble getting your LifeDrive to sync w/Calendar in the first place? I've managed to get all BUT calendar syncing (and it's the MOST IMPORTANT part of Outlook that needs to sync!!)... any advice?

Outlook calendar will not synch to handheld


Here are two resource pages which hopefully will help. The first is Palm support page with an update to download for users of Outlook 2003. The second is a discussion thread of Treo users troubleshooting the same problem. Even if the PDA is different, the issue (and error code) is practically the same, Rather than cut and paste what I think is relevant, read the thread and see if one of the solutions listed helps you.

Let us know how you make out.

PS - What PDA, operating systems (PC and PDA) and version of Outlook are you using?

How do I fix my Outlook Calendar synchronization problem?


Palm tech fixed my problem. It turned out some items in Outlook Calendar were corrupted, thus preventing a synch with LifeDrive. The fix is to export the Calendar items and import them. This process fixes corruption. After doing that I successfully synchronized Calendar with LifeDrive. More specifically. I moved Calendar items to a different folder, thus emptying the main Calendar folder. I exported the Calendar items in the new folder to a CSV (Windows) file. Then, I imported that CSV (Windows) file into the main Calendar folder. Finally,I did a synch and all worked perfectly.

Lost all contacts, memos, tasks, after LifeDrive Update 1.0


This morning I downloaded LifeDrive Update 1.0, and when I did a HotSync afterwards, I got an error message saying, Handheld Tasks application database version not supported. Handheld Notes application database version not supported. Now my contacts, memos, tasks, calendar entries and possibly other items are all gone!! This is the core data that is the reason why I use a PDA! I would be totally distraught, except that the data does still seem to exist in Outlook on my PC. I am running Outlook 2002, SP3 on a WinXP machine. Can anyone help to fix this problem? thanks,

Hotsync with two computers


I just posted a similar kind of problem. With my old M105, this worked fine - Outlook on my work computer, Palm Desktop on my home computer. When I upgraded to Zire 31, I saw that message about 2 computers once during the past week, but never again. I was thinking about using the Install CD again on my work computer to see if there is an option for synching between 2 computers. (synching to 2 different computers seems to be the most reliable backup for one bad synch)

Problem syncing with two computers


The HotSync Manager was not designed to work this way. While it may seem like a good idea to do what you are doing, I would never consider doing it. HotSync was designed to be a one-to-one relationship between a set of data on your PC and a set on your handheld. You are giving contrary messages to each PC by using it this way. If you synch to an exchange server (via your Outlook account) you can get away with doing this because PocketMirror or the palmOne Outlook conduits and other conduits have settings you can make to notify HotSync that you are 'two-timing' :-). However if you synch to Outlook in work and then to Palm Desktop at home (I suspect this is your scenario), I disrecommend this. I recommend setting the Home PC to be a slave. That is, I set the conduits at home to be handheld overwrites desktop for the four personal information conduits - Calendar, Contacts, To Dos and Memos. Then when I am at home if I want to change some data, I add it to the handheld not on the PC. That way you have a kosher set of data that is up to date on the handheld and on your work PC. When you synch to the home PC, this data is cloned to the home PC from the handheld. You can continue as you are but you will always have some uncertainty on your data integrity. Losing precious contacts or not showing up for a key appointment is a bad deal.

Why does pocket mirror trawl through all items when synchronising a calendar


The HotSync software on the Mac was never designed to cope with the scenario where you synch with a PC elsewhere. It assumes that you are performing a recovery synchronization when it sees that the handheld synched elsewhere. The assumption with the Palm OS was always that you synched one computer to one PDA. With more propsperous times, the software has not yet evolved at Palm Source (not part of Palm Inc any longer.) With regards to PocketMirror, there is a setting to allow you to synch to more than one PC. The setting is buried deep in the PocketMirror settings for each of the four conduits. The setting allows PocketMirror to see more than one PC as your route to an Exchange server.

When synching new Outlook calendar items, a "note" is added to the T5 calendar item


I have the same problem. T5 Win XP Home HP Pavilion Desktop Outlook 2003. It seems to only attach the blank notes to recurring appointments. Delete them all (which is annoying) and they come back after a HotSync
