    Just upgraded to 650 and have almost no memory. No pictures, no spreadsheets, no extra programs, and still have only 3M of space left. Tier 2 says it's because all my 600 "stuff" came over. This can't be right. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    If you just synced your new 650 to your 600 userid -- it probably is right:

    http://treo.discuss.treocentral.com/...ad.php?t=99450
    (Since you have already synced your 650--skip the first step, which is performing a last hotsync of your 600.)



    Also, at the top of this forum there is a sticky thread for new 650 users -- it has alot of good info.

    Good Luck!

    Cheers, Perry.

    It's always a bad idea to "upgrade" and OS and move stuff from one machine to another. Undoubtedly there will be corruption.

    Procedure for upgrading from one Palm Device to Another:

    1. Synch old Treo for last time.
    2. Go to C:\ProgramFiles\Palm\[your username] and copy the entire folder soemwhere else just to be safe.
    3. If your old Treo stuff is in C:\ProgramFiles\Palm install new Treo 650 Palm Desktop to C:\ProgramFiles\Palmone
    4. Hard Reset your new 650.
    5. Hotsync new 650
    6. Install ROM Update
    7. Copy the following files:

    address.dat from C:\ProgramFiles\Palm\[your username]\address to C:\ProgramFiles\PalmOne\[your username]\address
    memopad.dat from C:\ProgramFiles\Palm\[your username]\memopad to C:\ProgramFiles\PalmOne\[your username]\memopad
    todo.dat from C:\ProgramFiles\Palm\[your username]\todo to C:\ProgramFiles\PalmOne\[your username]\todo
    datebook.dat from C:\ProgramFiles\Palm\[your username]\datebook to C:\ProgramFiles\PalmOne\[your username]\datebook

    8. Hotsync ... RTFM and use the phone this way for 3-7 days to make sure no issues. Download latest versions of all your programs in menatime. Get Dataviz tech tool.
    9. Install Northglide's Uninstall Manager to track your program installations.
    10. Install PowerRUN or an equivalent to move programs to card.
    11. Install Dataviz tech tool to move Docs2Go to card
    12. Install Programs from Palm CD ... one program at a time...that is one program per HotSync
    13. Again use for 3-4 days to look for problems.
    14. Go thru your programs list and rank programs from small and uncomplicated to big, heavy memory users. Any hacks or progranms that require they be installed in main memory best left to last. Again one program per Hotsync so UM can track what files go in with what program. Only reasoning here is that you can probably get away with installing 6-7 small , simple programs per day whereas something big or which ties into system calls should be left to last and be installed alone. This will better enable you to diagnose any conflicts.
    15. Install a few programs per day making sure no problems have surfaced, again starting with smallest/simplest to largest/most complicated.
    16. If you can manage, I'd leave biggies like TomTom, EDGE, Snapper /Chatter to last and install those last few 1 program a day.
    17. If at any point problems kick up, you can easily retrace your steps with UM to find the offending program.
    18. Make sure you have a backup progam installed. Check Best Utilities thread for listings and url's.
    19. This shoulda been listed earlier but any programs that tie themselves to a specific device will need new registration numbers.
    20. Delete the OLD [B]C:\ProgramFiles\Palm\ directory not the new PalmOne one you just created.


    Jump back on TC with any questions and search the threads for answers. Most issues have been addressed previously and answers should be "ready and waiting" on the boards.

    I appreciate the help, but... I can't open any of the huperlinks... and Sprint already had me hotsync my 600 info to my 650.... So now are there any suggestions? There is no way that I have only 3M of space left. Like I mentioned, there are no worksheet, pictures. etc... any help is appreciated!

    Start at step 2 in the detailed step by step in Message 3 above or follow Perry's abridged version.

    Install the Treo 650 Desktop from it's CD -- it put's 650 conduits into place.
    Hard Reset your 650, creating a "just out of the box" 650 (unless it is just out of box)
    Rename your backup folder on your PC to backupold
    (Programs>Palm>userid>backup to backupold)
    (Hopefully that's the path that Handspring used, but you get the idea.)
    (The backup folder houses the 3rd party software you have installed in case a back up from a hard reset is necessary -- renaming the folder takes it out of the loop.)
    Hot Sync the 650 to your userid.
    You should have a clean Treo 650 with only your PIM data brought back from the 600.
    (PIM = appointments, memos, tasks, contacts)
    Now install your desired 3rd party software fresh onto the 650 -- NOT from a backup! (Also, get the newest version, while you are at it.)
    When you Hot Sync again, a new backup folder is created, with the freshly installed 3rd party software backed up the way the 650 likes it.)

    You should be good to go. (Do not HotSync the 600 to this userid again -- that will mess things up.)

    Cheers, Perry.

    Perry:

    Does this advice apply to the Mac, if you know? any Mac related advice would be appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    David
