Tungsten E Crashing!
      #17716 - 11/28/04 07:54 PM

My husband and I bought Tungsten E PDAs last November and both of us have just experienced a similar problem within a month of each other. Our palms had full battery charge in the evening and when we turned them on in the morning there was no power response when they were turned on. We plugged them in to charger and they did power up, however, it had reset itself somehow and was asking to go through the start up process. I have lost all of my information that I had on my palm and so did my husband! Argh! Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a back up memory source to save your information? Do I need to buy an old school daytimer? Please help! I have sent it off for servicing but I fear they won't help. I know I can sync up with my home computer but we have been hit with three viruses this summer so I don't trust that method either. Let me know what I can do. thanks

It sounds like a program is activating in the middle of the night and locking up your PDA. Try to find which app alarm or other scheduled activity is coming on at night, one that both TE's have in common.

As for backup, I use BackupBuddyVFS Pro 3.06 by BlueNomad at to backup my T3 to an SD card. I run it automatically every night so that my backup is never more than a day old. There are other similar programs available.

For a pure desktop solution, check out our review of BackupBuddy for Windows at . A good antivirus program will keep your PC virus free.
