Restore Issue

Post by mcarter » Tue Mar 27, 2007 7:01 am

I use a NEC MobilePro 900c and, with the addition of TextMaker, Plan Maker and a USB stick, it makes a great alternative to a laptop. However, the 900c periodically "forgets" its USB port and the only solution is to do a hard reset and restore. This is not a problem in the office as I can restore in 5 minutes from a desktop machine and everything works OK. It should not be a problem when I am out of the office as I can do a restore from a compact flash card (using bUSEFUL Backup Plus). Unfortunately, everything restores OK from the compact flash card except for TextMaker and PlanMaker - they show up as generic program icons and attempts to open them result in a message that they are not Windows CE programs. I'm assuming something critical does not get restored? Also tried EzBackup with the same result.

Any ideas or workarounds?

So did you install our software to this USB storage or to internal memory? Most of the time it's best to install to a storage card (or the USB storage device) and start up the software from this storage device.

I don't know much about the backup programs you use, so I can only give some hints to you.

Thanks for the response. I installed SoftMaker Office in my internal memory as I understood it may run slowly if installed in a compact flash card or USB drive?

When you install on a compact flash card, is everything needed installed on the compact flash card? If so, I'll give it a go.

Installing to a CF card is as fast as the internal memory. So please give it a try.

Thanks - that seems to work fine when it is installed on the CF card.
