    I use NO backup utility.

    Every now and then (when I want to record a backup point) I simply copy the Palm backup folder under my user name to somewhere else.

    Experience has shown that, for my device, only VoiceDial needs to be restored separately.

    I've never had a problem with the calendar or anything, but, if I ever did, I could correct it anyway since I sync with two PCs, so one acts as the calendar backup for the other.

    I suggest that even if you use a backup program you also do this - it cannot fail! The main advantage of a backup program is to catch the bits and pieces that do not end up in the Palm backup folder. Once you know what those are, you can handle them separately anyway.

    I only started this thread because of so many threads about problems restoring from some backup program or other.

    This method is about as old as the first Palm Pilot.

    The backup programs are used because you can use them to perform a restore when away from the PC. And yes there are those things that backup programs capture that are not part of a hotsync. Also a restore from the backup programs is MUCH faster.

    The restores work fine for most, but so does a restore from hotsynced files and even with that some people have issues now and then.

    Personally I keep copies of both.

    Try my free SD card backup program. It's free, and restore everything. Rom included.

    Most backup software, and even the desktop sync, don't backup the phones rom. Plus if you out on the street you have no access to your backup on your computer. Try mine out "it's free, but slow".

    What's the point of backing up the ROM? You can't restore it even if you want to, and it's never "lost" like the contents of RAM can be.

    Some Apps install themselve into ROM, plus you can install a app into Rom. YOu can also delete a app in ROM. I rather have it backup just in case.

    it's a Backup program!!!!
