    Sorry about this...but I'm still on the prowl for an SD backup app that actually works; i.e, I can actually Restore a blanked or new 700p from it. Probably has been covered before; so if you can just give me a link, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    only backup card that ever consistently worked was with the Handspring Visor.

    NVBackup is free and it works perfectly (and it's free, did I mention that?)

    I have hard reset both my Sprint Treo 650 and 700P and restored them both completely from the backups created on my SD card by BackupBuddy VFS.

    (But, I believe, all the major backup programs out there for the PalmOS do this . . . . . so maybe I do not understand the question.)

    I use various backup programs, including NVBackup (free and totally reliable), BackupBuddy, RightBackup, the online Backup.NET, and the new online PalmBackup.
    NVBackup is free and works perfectly. I set it to automatically back up my Treo 700P every morning at 6:15 and to reset it afterwards (so I have a clean memory cache to start each day). I have seven cycles of rotating backups, plus every afternoon when I have a moment, I do another rotating manual backup.
    In the past — as I went through three unstable 700Ps before getting this presently stable one (Palm, are you listening?) — I relied on NVBackup for every restoration. No problems at all.
    So I continue to use RightBack occasionally and I continue to have Backup.NET working in the background. They’re backups for my flawless NVBackup. I continue using them because they’re now free to me (having paid already), but when my Backkup.NET subscription runs out, I suspect I’ll let it lapse.
    The new PalmBackup ... Seems to work, but does anyone know how it could be used to restore anything? I haven’t found any instructions about that ... So it seems a tad useless ...
    NVBackup: free and flawless. Why fuss with anything else?
    (Of course, I also synch daily, including backing up my SD card.)

    One more for you, Resco backup. works flawlessly, dumps db cache, and is 100% reliable. Easy.

    BackupManager does not support the restoration of the Java environment. If Java is important, then Resco Backup or NVBackup are excellent solutions. I use Resco Backup. As a note, I also have BackupManager and no longer use it.

    I second Resco Backup, but also consider Resco Explorer where you can get an excellent file manager (the best imho) and a manual version of Resco Backup.

    Fortunately, I have a built-in card reader on my laptop. You can also buy a card reader for about $20. Before my new laoptop, I used a SanDisk MobileMate SD+.

    I backup my SD card weekly to my laptop and back up my laptop weekly to an external hard drive.

    Good Luck

    Another way would be to use something like Card Export application that allows you to put files on your sd card via the hotsync cable and I assume backup the sd card itself
