    I backup mine daily with BackupBuddy to the external card and its finishing act is the killing of the orphan files. Ben

    Hiya, Unless they finally released the updated version of backupbuddy, it does not work properly for palm 5.0 and will not back everything up. They openly state this and are working on a new release of it. But unless they have come out with the new one and you have a crash, you will be in for a rude awakening. take care, jay

    Ps. As to the orginal ? I understand that filez is supposed to work but I do not have any 1st hand experience with it.

    The desktop version of BackUp Buddy works fine with OS5 devices. But the card-related backup version of that app is a recipe for disaster for OS5 devices. There's a 30-day fully featured trial version of the desktop available. You may want to install it, run a "sync", and let it kill your archived files-- which will wind up in an "Archived Files" directory under your user name, under the Palm directory.

    Note: just after installing the desktop, be sure to tap the "options" so the app will do precisely what you want when you sync.

    Try the new FileZ 5.3 Beta 4. I don't know if it can delete orphan files, haven't tried yet, but it is a much improved version of the old FileZ.

    ...in that case try Pocket Folder 1.7 Beta. I've been able to delete orphan files when you set view w/attributes vs size of file. Pretty neat familiar "Windows" type of interface.

    I would like to know this also. Using FileZ, you get an extremely long list of files and the only way to identify anything is by filename. Some orphaned files cannot be identified this way because they are not named the same as the app they were associated with. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated because i am already running kinda short of free space on my T600.

    You can get Cleanup for "just" 10:

    Here is what I did to delete those "Resource DB" tagged files. I used the current version of Filez.

    1. Reset your Treo and press and hold "UP" on the 5-way nav. while it resets. This should prevent all the start up "Resource DB" files from loading.

    2. Start up Filez and you should now be able to delete those files tagged as "Resource DB".

    WARNING:
    Make sure you know what you are deleting because you might really mess up your Treo and might have to hard reset. You have been warned.

    Do not start deleting things unless you are finding good reason to!

    One deleted file you needed and there goes your whole setup!

    Weeks of work ahead for trying to save a second here or there.
