It is VERY IMPORTANT that you do not do more than 3 hotsyncs with
PilotManager before restoring your pilot. If you do you may LOSE your
Restoring data to your pilot after a reset is quite easy. All you have
to do is use the Installer conduit to put back all your databases
In PilotManager 1.106 or newer select File / Installer / Configure
from the menu bar. In older versions you must do File / Properties,
activate the Installer conduit, and click Configure.
Now click the Add button and navigate to your Backup directory
to find your latest backup. The default Backup location is
~/.pilotmgr/Backup/LatestArchive, but you may have configured the
Backup conduit to store your Backups elsewhere. Check the Backup conduit
configuration dialog if you can't find the default location.
NOTE1: If you don't use the Backup conduit then you have no backups
and you're out of luck.. sorry!
NOTE2: If you have done a hotsync AFTER resetting your pilot
then the LatestArchive directory won't have the files you want to
restore. Check the other directories in the Backup directory to find the
most recent backup from BEFORE the reset. If you have done too many
hotsyncs after the reset then it is possible that NONE of the directories
have the data you want. Note that on every hotsync the Backup conduit
tells you that it is expiring the oldest archive.. if you have expired all
archives from before the reset then your data is lost.. sorry!
Click the Accept All button (in version 1.105 or newer) to select
all the files.
This step is very annoying in older versions.. you may wish to manually
copy the files from the backup directory to ~/.pilotmgr/Installer.
Now just run the Installer conduit and all your data
In pilotmanager 1.106 select File / Installer / Run;
in older versions you must deactivate ALL other conduits and activate
JUST the Installer in the File / Properties dialog, and then do
a hotsync as usual.
