How do I backup my PocketPC 2002 with preference and applications so that I
can restore the device with applications, preference etc on active sync?

Recently my pocketPC 2002 did a hard reset as some applications hanged the
device. I can restore the contact and calendar, but had to reinstall all the
applications. This does not happen with Palm, so looking for a solution
similar to the Palm.

Hi,

Not very familiar with Palm devices but one option would be to use
ActiveSync backup. You can check out the following site for steps:

http://www.cewindows.net/faqs/activesync/backup.htm

Alternate solutions are available via third party software but then these
are a lot quicker. Amongst them Sprite Backup for Pocket PC is pretty
popular.

It doesn't happen on the Palm?
You want a solution similar to the Palm?

What solution do you use (on a Palm) for something you say doesn't happen?

This isn't your palm ... but a lean mean working machine. BACKUP the stupid

My iPaq can do a complete backup with the built in software. The backup
file can be copied with active sync and/or can be stored on the iPAQ itself
in the free "ROM" region. That area survives a hard reset.

Hey! I guess it does. I just installed it an hour ago so I'll forgive
myself for missing it. Not sure if I would want to download to download to
many headers on this connection though.

This is what happen. My XDA just decided to hang-no signal and screen
continues to blink draining the battery. Soft reset did not work and only
hard reset will work. But that means losing all the data.

I did get back all the contact and calendar on sync. But for the app, I had
to reinstall them and set all the preferences all over again. Just thought
there must be a better solution out there.

Thanks in advance for all your suggestion.

Next time you might try removing the battery for a moment and then
re-inserting it. That might force a soft reset and not kill your memory.
Since you seem to be forced to do a hard reset anyhow it's worth trying.
