Alternate method of restoring data to new PPC


Jun 17, 2005
Hi, I just read your recommended method in the FAQ of restoring data to a new PPC. I would like to find out if it is possible to do this another way. I am going to do a ROM update soon on my current PPC and the manufacture recommends to clean/fresh install of all the programs...Therefore, is it not possible to simply re-install the programs and copy the data from my desktop c:\program
files\ into the appropriate folder on the new PPC after the update?

Thanks in advance,


Run APDL SingleSync to get the latest copy of data from your PDA.

Make a backup copy of your c:\program files\ folder on your PC. (Note the current 8 digit pocket pc id folder).

Do your ROM upgrade per the manufacture.

Install 'APDL-PPC' and then run the AirlineLogbook application. Once you see the first Logpage screen click (Options) (Exit).

Using ActiveSyncs 'Explore' button copy the contents of c:\program files\\[8-digit pocket pc id]\apdl\backup folder to your PDA's 'My Documents\APDL' folder.

Run Airlinelogbook to ensure all your data is present.

Run APDL SingleSync to backup.

Fly Safe!
