    i was just looking at my treo saw that my sd apps were present, i hit my phone button to make a call then the dbcache tool kicked in (to automatically clear my db cache) after it cleared i went back to my screens and my sd apps disappeared!

    can anyone else reproduce this??????

    What DB cache clearing app are you using?

    Try a soft reset. I believe that the launcher keeps a file open that contains icons and such. Flushing the dbcache can close this.

    If a soft reset does not work then it may take some weird magic to fix it up.

    It will occasionally happen. I notice it happens more often with Launch-Anywhere, especially after a hotsync to the desktop and a soft reset always corrects it.

    DBScan is used to delete records that you the user delete that do not really get deleted. The symptom hits you when you are trying to sync the PIMs to the desktop and the sync hangs up on the calender or address book. When DBScan has completed its run (I have it run first from the "Neither" option then the others, the PIMs will normally sync without a problem.

    Now, DB Cache is a bit different. It does not deal with the PIM applications. The DB Cache is where applications are loaded to and run by the Palm OS and this is where the dirty work happens. Some applications, especially the older ones, do not work properly with Palm's "new" NVFS file system and because of their inability to work with it, causes the device to crash. Sometimes locking the application(s) into the DB Cache stops the crash (Resco Locker - http://resco.net/palm/locker/default.asp).

    There are other times when the DB Cache fills up, OS does not properly clear the DB cache and and that sometimes causes a crash when some nasty little program tries to access the data in the cache. Yepper.

    There are a couple of applications that monitor the state of the DB cache and clear it when it reaches the "user specified" level. When done properly and when using programs that are meant to work with the NVFS file system, crashes are greatly reduced if not eliminated.

    I have used both DB Cache Tool (http://www.jade.dti.ne.jp/~imazeki/p...ta/DBcT02a.zip) and Reset Doctor (http://www.hobbyistsoftware.com/reset-doctor-more.php) and have stayed with Reset Doctor. I frankly believe Rob's support is very good.

    Going a bit further, device based backup utilities also trash the DB cache and can result in crashes. Applications such as Resco Backup (http://resco.net/palm/backup/default.asp) are designed to work around this. The following is a link that you might find interesting: http://resco.net/palm/backup/aboutbackup.asp

    I have Resco Backup set to lock specific applications when the sync is being done and to clear the DB cache after the backup has been completed instead of resetting it. Resetting the device causes the device to load everything back into memory as it reboots. Clearing the DB cache does just that and does not reload applications back in to it.
