    Running BackupMan v 1.55 on my Treo 700P, same version I had on 650 and seems to work fine.

    Recently switched to Chatter for email, and start getting a "low memory" warning from that app. and it appears related to my daily backup using BackupMan v 1.55, which seems to eat dbCache after running a backup. Performing a soft reset fixes the problem.

    I have BackUp Man set for auto backup each night, and each morning I've found a Low Memory warning in Chatter. So after a reset, I scheduled backupman to run this morning. Everything seems fine, then after a couple of minutes following reset, Chatter displayed the low mem message again.

    After the latest message, here's what console/mem shows, prior to resetting:
    Dynamic Free: 4898064, Max: 2501424
    Storage Free: 27750400, Max: 27750400
    dbCache Free: 124304, Max: 100256

    After reset I get:
    Dynamic Free: 7621256, Max: 4948552
    Storage Free: 27734016, Max: 27734016
    dbCache Free: 11122232, Max: 11084312

    After running BU Man again I get:
    Dynamic Free: 5129816, Max: 2549296
    Storage Free: 27631616, Max: 27631616
    dbCache Free: 307024, Max: 159168

    So Dynamic and dbCache both take a pretty big hit.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know if the 2.1 version of BackupMan has the same issue?

    Alternatively, is there any program out there that will allow you to schedule a soft reset? I have mReset, which is handy, but it can be scheduled AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK.

    This subject has been discussed many times here. You can get some info by using Search and also on the BackupMan vendor site.

    If you want to schedule a soft reset you can use LookatMe and Mreset. I have Backupman 2.1 and I have had no memory issues. I do not use Chatter, but I plan on trying it out so I will continue to check in on this thread. Good luck!

    Also check the Meminfo thread. You can flush out the NVFS db cache. Supposedly improves stability.

    Thanks! Going to give LookatMe a try to autolaunch mreset and see if it helps. Also looking at the other thread.

    I was a longtime Backupman user and I switched to NVBackup due to memory issues with Chatter on my 700p. I still use Backupman to do a manual backup now and then, but I use NVBackup for my scheduled backups.
