Good evening/morning,

The programs and data which get restored after a hard-reset are stored in
your Palm profile. I am not too sure about the Mac, but I believe it would
be similar to Windows. Either way, in the location where you installed the
Palm software, find a directory which corresponds to your username, e.g.
~/Palm Desktop/smithbob.

Find in this directory a subdirectory called Archive, which unlike Backup,
should contain all the programs that your are >currently said to be using<.
/Backup should contain all that you have ever used if I recall correctly.

Delete applications from /Archive as necessary. If you have a conflict and
want to isolate and pin-point that source of the error, only restore one
application at a time and see which one 'kills' your Treo.

Hope it helps and best of luck,
