So, I was doing a hot sync [on a Sprint Treo 650] before installing some software and I get the message (see below).

After that:
(1) I get soft resets even just starting Versamail
(2) No internet (Blazer) connection (via Sprint.)
(3) All my registrated software became unregistered
(4) All the preferences in all (?) my software - gone.
(5) BackupBuddyVSF says I never did a back up.
(5) Even the Owner screen was blank.

I could have reloaded all from a backupbuddy checkpoint, but I decided to be a bit stubborn.

So, with the knowledge from the treocentral site, I

(a) deleted (with filez) all those Multimail-ish files

(b) Did a Vision provisioning ##data, etc

This fixed Versamail, Internet access. Good enough. I then "just" entered alll over again all those preferences (including, of course, all my Versamail info).

Oh, what do I have installed? "Everything" (including Butler 2.81) (actually the only "messy" thing) - running it all using Zlauncher from a 1 gig Lexar Media card. I had maybe 6 megs free - to be "safe."

So, thanks, treocentral!!
