and it would not reload,because it is a one time deal.
I'm not sure about the newest version but this is simply not the case with the older NF exbal. I made a burned hard copy backup and that loads just fine. On my oldest Palm I'd loose the program every few weeks and never had any install problems.
I also have a copy on a thumb drive that is attached to my key chain and that loads just fine as well.
The thing I like about the Palm Pilots is that you can turn the power at any screen (like target engagement) and when you need it you just to turn it on and its right there, which is instant I might add. I can't say the same thing for PP's. The only experience I have had was with Load Base and it took forever to start up.
