I'm not using it myself, but I think you need to make sure that no application or extension are using the file when you try to sync it. So, I would suggest you make *sure* that the
"Instant Palm Desktop" extension is not loaded. To make sure it's not loaded, use the control panel "Extension Manager" to turn it off. If it's loaded, I think I remember reading here
that the extension would open the file at startup and keep it opened, so that no other application can't access it. Obviously, make also sure that you quit the "Palm Desktop"
application as well...
