Re: Connectivity Pack problem with Sync of Appt Database?

I have struck a similar problem with the contact (phone) book
application. Mine was running fine with about 800 entries up to a
couple of weeks ago. The application ran great on the OGO but when I
back up to the PC with the connectivity pack it would crash and not let
me open the connectivity pack application at all giving a general
protection fault in CPACK100 error. I have to delete the latest backup
of phone.pdb and go back to an earlier version. Problem is sometimes it
works and sometimes it doesn't. I suspect that I've now hit the limits
of the connectivity pack on the PC (though it works fine on the little
OG). I'm a bit worried about losing all my data. Pretty poor design of
the connectivity pack if you ask me!
