Using Sashimi to automatically restore contacts on a touch pro

Is there a file I can put into the auto folder of sashimi to restore backed-up contacts?

If not, is it possible to run pim_backup for a given backup file from a mortscript that I could put into the auto folder?

Re: Using Sashimi to automatically restore contacts on a touch pro

just put this in your mortscript file and change the copy from folder location and you should be good to go...

Rename("\pim.vol", "plim.vold")
Copy("\Storage Card\Auto\pim.vol", "\pim.vol")
SetFileAttribute("\plim.vold", "archive", FALSE)
Delete("\plim.vold")


cheers!!

Re: Using Sashimi to automatically restore contacts on a touch pro

I use MS MyPhone and Sashimi and want to know if there is a way to back up my call history with Sashimi since MS MyPhone wont do it.

i know you want something different, but i have a cab that transscribes call history to your calender... if you sync your calender along with your other stuff, this in a sense would still keep your call history, but just not in the traditional way your realy looking for...

here it is, just in case...i think this is it

Re: Using Sashimi to automatically restore contacts on a touch pro

why not do the automated install with that exe...
that's what I do.
but I just have it set to my backup itself, not the program's exe...

How do you make a mort script run every night?

Are you using sprite or spb backup or is it that you have somehow gotten pimbackup to save its backup files as executables?

I'd rather use pimbackup because then I can also automatically bring along my messages and call logs, but I can't figure out a way to get sashimi to restore a specific pimbackup file.

Could that be done with mortscript?

I use spb in my sashimi,
but I do use pim also(but not in sashimi.)
But yes, that could also be done with mortscript(the manual pressing part)
go to sashimi's home and research their forum there.
tons of info and video walkthroughs.
