    After adding my $100 of free handago software, my 650 is now soft resetting like a maniac, so I want to hard reset, then install programs one-by-one.

    The problem is that after I do a hard reset I set up hotsync to install one of the programs, but it just reinstalls my backup file, i.e. everything.

    I don't want to start a new hotsync name because many of my programs are tied to my hotsync name. Can someone explain how to NOT have my backup file kick in after I hard reset? Under Custom, I say 'do nothing' until backup files but that doesn't solve this dilemna.

    thanks...

    go to where you installed the palm software (c:\program files\palmone) and find your hotsync name and rename the folder to something else


    Then when you hotsync again you can re-create that name and start fresh.

    And do consider getting Uninstall Manager (from www.northglide.com). It will be most helpful in uninstalling apps. Also, consider BackuBuddy Pro (for Windows or VFS). It will save checkpoint every time you hotsync in case you need to restore to a certain point in time farther back than you last backup.

    I just had to do a hard reset this weekend too, and I was having the same problem. If you move all the backup files in your username's folder to another location (and I then renamed that moved folder "xxBackupxx"), you can start with a fresh backup routine, and also have all the backed up files available to reinstall one at a time. This enabled me to reinstall some of my apps along with the data and prefs I had spent so much time entering and setting up.
