  • Palm Advanced Housekeeping II Points to Cover: A Hard Reset completely clears the device. Afterwards, restore your data by performing a HotSync™ synchronization. If your device had additional applications such as games and third-party software, you will need to reinstall them. Each file has a backup bit that tells HotSync™ manager to store a copy of that file on your PC’s hard disk. Use a shareware application such as BackupBuddy to turn the backup bit on for all applications that you want to ensure will be on your device after every HotSync™ synchronization. Note that some applications have multiple files.
