Sorry, I wasn't clear. I understand that only one hotsync name should be used per device. I've always had the same hotsync ID throughout all my Palms devices, though I have only synced the current one I own at any time. I'm curious of two things: (1) why I have two paths to a Palm folder (C:\program files\Palm\xxxxxx and C:\Palm\xxxxx) and (2) why I have a backup in only one of them (C:\program files\Palm\xxxxx). Sorry wasn't clear the first time.
