    Take a tour at http://www.hobbyistsoftware.com/reset-doctor-more.php. As a note, I lock the preference file and on the 700p have it set to clear at 4mb and on the 650 to clear at 3mb.

    I would recommend
    Auto backup: on
    Cache management: on (leave with default settings)
    Crash logging: on
    in other tools:
    clean exchange manager: selected
    lock prefs: NOT selected

    that's it.

    You always say that and not locking preferences causes resets...otherwise, not a problem.

    As a note, the default cache management does not completely clear the db cache, though it does clear it to a degree must quicker and more frequently.

    I just tried this app and it crashes my 680 upon launch

    Never had a crash out of it on my 680.

    I'm curious.. I use "Clean Exchange Manager" in Butler, and the default in Reset Doctor is also turned on. Would this cause any problems? I generally turn it off in Reset Doctor, but wondering what would happen if I forgot.

    thanks for your tips here Ben. Previously Id always steered clear of locking prefs in ResetDoctor, but now since having done it, I think my unit has been more stable (not that it was a problem really anyway) and there has been no problem with other application preferences.

    it even inspired me to shift a few more apps across into ROM with ROMTool, which again is supposed to increase dbcache instability, but I cant see any reason not to do it if Im not getting any/many crashes in the first place.

    cheers

    I've had it on for both Butler and PrefDoctor/ResetDoctor since the latter was in beta - never a problem. I believe it's the same code as in Butler so I'd guess whichever one was on would run the check.
    Palm Pilot-->Handspring Visor-->Treo 300-->Treo 600-->Treo 650-->Treo 700p+E62-->Treo700p+Curve (8300)-->Curve (8330)

    Yep, either application or both. I now just have it set for Reset Doctor to monitor.

    Can someone confirm this is the best way to set up this program?!? thanks.

    those are the best settings
    Palm Pilot-->Handspring Visor-->Treo 300-->Treo 600-->Treo 650-->Treo 700p+E62-->Treo700p+Curve (8300)-->Curve (8330)

    Give it a try and see what happens. Locking the preferences, which I do, means those preferences are not immediately updated when changed within the application; they are updated after the application is updated. There are just devices out there that operate better with the preferences locked.

    I have spent HOURS on stability issues and this has been a factor in my device's stability - and stable it is.

    There are more con's than pro's. The help screen Rob has for that function within Reset Doctor is rather informative.

    Give them both a try as I have and make a decision based upon your experience. I lock, others do not.
