Palm Treo 750
WM6 Upgrade lost contacts
I just updated my WM5 to WM6 on my 750. I previously backed up all files with spb backup. When I tried to restore the files after upgrade, it trashed my installation. So then I reinstalled WM6 which was fine (without contacts) Then I unpacked my archive with Spb Backup Unpack to isolate the pim.vol and cemail.vol in the hopes that I could just drag the files back into the root directory. Doesn't work because the file format seems to be different between WM5 & WM6. There is some very techie advice out there using the MS emulator to try and read the files. I'm wondering can I revert my Palm to WM5 and then restore my contacts and then extract them differently with a pim contact utility and then reinstall WM6. Long question, thank...
As far as I know, Palm doesn't carry the original WM5 on their website, you may wish to call their tech support and see if they can provide it for you, or call AT&T or Rogers and see if they can help.
I do understand this can be a royal pain in the butt if you have business related contacts.
I cannot figure out any way to change that and cannot remember if WM5 did that automatically or if I had done something in the past.
