transfering data from old backup to new flash

Great board. I wish that I would have known about this place a long time ago. Last week I reflashed my PPC 6700 from wm5 to a custom wm6 with the kitchen (awsome product btw and thanks to all who made it possible). Anyway, after I flashed to the new ROM, I can't get the backup data from my device to reload onto the new flash using the WMDC. My new flash has a different name than the old flash (new one is Cosmo's Apache vs the old one, Cosmo's Smartphone). How can I get the old contact and calender data back onto my device? I use Vista on the pc and do not have MS Outlook, which would make matters easier. Thank anyone who can help.

Re: transfering data from old backup to new flash

Sorry. Since you reflashed, you just lost all data. NEVER flash without backing up. Sorry to bring bad news, but it was a lesson for you

Re: transfering data from old backup to new flash

also for the future I'd recommend PIMBackup it's a small app that backs up and restores your contacts, call histories, email and text quickly and easily... it's free. check it out!

I did back up, immediately before reflashing. I used the Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC).

You said you don't have Outlook. If you don't have Outlook then there is no where for the data to be saved.

Re: transfering data from old backup to new flash

Nothing. It might say sync is going through, but without OutLook nothing can be done.

Re: transfering data from old backup to new flash

I'm running off memory but:

My Document files in Main Memory are synced in a special folder usually named after your PDAs name in the My Documents folder on your PC

Favorites are stored in IE under Favorites>Mobile Favorites

All of the other stock items are stored in Outlook. If you don't have Outlook, they don't get backed up...

Note is is possible to have non-standard items (such as Pocket Money) that sync to other areas (such as MS Money 2003), but they would not be there unless you added them yourself...

Hope this helps....
