    Which applications do you use that may be accessing the Contacts database?

    The database may be corrupt. Run dbScan (latest version from http://www.pimlicosoftware.com/), Select Neither, Menu, Options, Remove all deleted records.

    I don't have that problem myself, but if dbScan didn't do the job, you might want to try FixAddressDB (attached); it's by HobbyistSoftware. This is what he says on his site:
    "Fix AddressDB is a utility that forces the treo 650 to rebuild the AddressDB which provides compatibility with most contact-related applications. Useful when the Treo650 corrupts this file (unfortunately too frequent). Requires Treo650"

    Oh, one more thing...you didn't get rid of your Business and/or Personal categories did you? If you did, add them back; according to CESD (the creator of DateBk5) the absence of these two categories can cause a shuffling of of the others.

    anybody tried this? does it work? Have used dbscan & it worked,but I"m still apparently having a contacts issue as my address db shows something like 256k & my Contacts DB shows 8 MB.

    Best I can tell you is to go back to the other thread and use the solution I mentioned there. Other solutions may work, but don't know for sure. I know the one I did worked.

    I 'think' you can force the 650 to rebuild the addressdb file just by deleting it.

    I 'think' it gets recreated by the OS when a program (that's not familiar with the new contactsdb) tries to access it.
