I sync my C600 & my Ipaq with both my home PC & work PC.

I accidentally erased my work PCs contacts.

Now I have a hell of a job each time I sync.

My ringtones and picture IDs have gone, so I re inputed them.

Then I synced at home and that buggered it all up again.

I think the only thing to do is delete all of contacts and appointments

on my work PC and get phone & Ipaq synced with my home PC the transfer them to my work PC.

How can I be sure that when I've deleted the contacts and appoinments Active Sync

doesn't delete them on my phone instead of retrieving them???

I am not suggesting that this is the best solution, but it is what I would do:

  1. Backup your contacts from either home or work (whichever has most accurate ones) through exporting from Outlook
  2. Delete the partnerships from both home and work machines
  3. Delete all contacts from home and work machines
  4. Clear phone storage memory
  5. Create partnerships with both machines again
  6. Re-import contacts into Outlook
  7. Sync them all through the chain
This is a heavy-handed approach, but it would definitely work. However, you have to work out whether solving this problem is worth the other hassles that clearing your storage would give you.

The alternative is to try doing 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 only. This might work and avoid the need to clear your memory.
