Re: Restoring data saved on a Flash Card

The battery backup can be replaced by sliding the side IR cover down and pulling the plastic side tab which holds a button battery of size 2032. You can get a 10 pack of these batteries for $1 of you look on the website which sell cheap LED lights.

Here are some links and the FAQ about backs and such:

Sharp wizard. Batteries dead. can you retrieve information???


Depends. The Wizards had backup battery. As long as it is still good, then your data is safe. if you saved / copied / made backups to the compact flash card (Type 1 option) as well, then you have a copy there that you might be able to use in a computer. Sharp used a different, not quite proprietary, format for storing data though. You may be able to see the data on the computer, but won't be able to open the individual files.

If your backup battery is dead, and the main batteries are dead, and you don't have backups on CF, then your data is likely gone.

Possible to restore data after a Hard Reset?


look here for your files
C:\Program Files\palmOne\[username]\Backup
and
C:\Program Files\palmOne\[username]\address


Now that you've made this mistake once, you probably want to get a backup program. I use the built in backup in Resco Explorer. They also make a stand alone application.

For your SD card backup might look at Bluesync.
For a free option you can use the PFB (palm file browser), but I would still manually backup the card with a cardreader attached to the pc on occasion.
