CAUTION: Resetting will cause unsaved data to be lost.

Resetting your Pocket PC is similar to restarting your desktop computer. It restarts the operating system, but you will lose any unsaved data. Occasionally, you may need to reset your Pocket PC; for example, you should reset:

  • After you restore data from your desktop computer.
  • When your Pocket PC stops responding; in other words, it appears to be “frozen” or “locked up.”

Use the stylus to press the reset button on your Pocket PC.
