    Don't know if you are familiar with acronis ghost or norton ghost, but it basically works like those programs. No matter what you mess up, you can perform a full restore of your device. Obviously, a computer and a mobile device are different, but the end result is basically the same... you "go back" to a previous time...

    So far I've not had an issue yet that sprite backup was not able to resolve.

    We can get technical, but what is important is the end result... unless you have an issue that falls outside the norm.

    Yes.

    Sprite backup was made by the folks who made Norton Ghost, but it does not backup "everything" like Ghost. It does not make a complete "image" of the entire device. Just a backup of everything you put on it. So after a hard reset, you could restore the backup to yes, get back to where you were before. To have the device setup just as it was when you ran the backup.

    Not new to Treo. Got new Treo PRO. Cool on the Sprite backup. Will try...but 1st. I seemed to have lost my 'notepad' abilities. The icon has disappeared from my Programs list. Now all my files are not being recognized. Was trying to just simply reinstall the basic 1 that comes in the windows mobile package. 2 things: Should I Sprite now w/o out NOTEPAD app? Can some1 direct me to where 2 redownload NOTEPAD.

    Possible to use my Micro SDcard from a 800w to a Pro and just restore basic 800w PIM info to a Pro? What about SMSes?

    Yes and yes on restoring the PIM files - those are the same. From there you are better off installing applications one at a time. Doing it this way also allows you to ensure you are using the latest updates.

    What about SMSes...I can't seem to find the file names on my 800w. I know they're there, but just looking for the actual name of the file(s).

    Thanks for posting. I'm hoping this is just a fluke and not a "feature" of service.What about the full version of Sprite?

    While were on the subject, Microsoft MyVoice doesn't seem to have that note pad feature either.
