    i have searched the site and no luck
    i just downloaded backupman i have a 1gig card
    the question is if my treo crashes and i need to back it up how do i do that using back up man?
    should backupman be stored on the treo or the sd card?
    right now its on the treo . if the treo needs to be backup and eveything is on the card i know that stuff will go back on but if i got backupman on the treo wont that too be erased it the treo crashes?
    i guess i need some more understanding how this works.
    thanks to all those who gave ne advise on the backupman.
    any other backup programs i need to install?
    i see some people are using 2 and 3 of them on their treo

    I think you're asking how you'd RESTORE your Treo if it crashes. If that's the question, then the answer is simple:

    Backup Man is definitely on your card if you've done a backup. Assuming you've done a hard reset, for example, you simply go to the built-in launcher, run Backup Man from the card, and then select RESTORE. It restores fairly quickly. Very simple!

    so you are saying that since i did a back up to my sd card with backupman it(backupman is now on my sdcad?)
    even thought when i downloaded backupman i saved it to the treo?
    just to know how to do it i went to my appilcation and i dont see anything
    please have patience with me im really trying to get this is dont know how to launch anything .
    i quess after i had to hard reset are you saying that the bcakupman icon will show back up and all i have to do is just touch it?
    backupman is saved to my treo.
    i thought that after you did a hard reset all the third party applications where gone? so wont backupman be gone also?

    backupman is installed in the treo - when you backup---everything (including backupman)--- goes to the sd card along with everything you backed up. If treo crashes - everything is on the sd card - so you can use backupman to restore from the SD card - go into applications - all - choose backupman ( it is now on the card ) - choose restore.
    Hope that is clear.

    Another good backup program which has excellent reviews is NV backup 1.12 and its FREE

    Actually, if you had a hard reset, backupman would prompt you to restore soon as the Treo finished resetting. All you have to do it select Yes.

    In my opinion, you're good to go now, especially since youll be on the road. You can backup to your card while on the road and away from your computer and you can restore on the fly if something goes wrong. I'd say you're all set.

    I'd say no to uninstaller, zlauncher can handle that for you. I believe neat freak's good at cleaning up stray files, .db's an such, and something like that's always a good idea. A clean Treo's a happy Treo, and all that.

    Exactly.

    In the launcher, at the top, there's a pulldown menu; change it to CARD; you'll then see Backup Man.

    I actually just used BackupMan to restore my 700 and it worked like a charm! Just a note though...I'd save an extra backup on an SD card that is not inside of the Treo. I ended up losing my last 650 and lost not only the data on the Treo, but also my backup which was on an SD card inside the Treo.

    This backup man program actually is quite a good one - easy to use - now if you have a card reader in your computer - once you have backed up everything to the SD card - copy the SDcard to the computer and put the files in My documents or desktop. Then you will have 2 backups of your data. ( in case SD card becomes corrupt )

    Now you can see that when you do a backup with backup man - IT ( with all of your data) - goes to the SD card and now resides there - in case you need to restore after a crash. Its not that hard - now it is clear! -

    Take the first card out - put the second card in - open backupman - menu - backup to sd card - then store the card - and put first one back in - good idea to do SOFT reset after all of this - ( equivalent to a re-start of computer )
    You can make as many backups to different cards as you want to.
