pim.vol will not overwrite or be removed Hey guys, I know there's over 100 pim.vol threads on here (I've been sifting through them for about 3 hours now) but this one really takes the cake. I updated my Q9m to 6.1 two months ago. All was going well until it started freezing (I narrowed it down to an issue in the texting, but all predictive/text correction was turned off), so I admitted defeat and did a master reset. Before I did that, I copied my pim.vol file as I have done many times before. My new issue is that when I try to overwrite it using my computer & usb connection (running XP, sp3) it tells me "cannot copy pim: there has been a sharing violation The source or destination file may be in use." I tried copying it to my storage card, renaming the file, and trying to move the one I want into the root with my computer. Won't take it. Won't delete the new one. Says it's in use. So, thanks to you awesome people, I have downloaded Total Commander. Sweet program. However, sweet as it is, when I try to copy the pim from the storage card to the root to overwrite the target file it says "cannot copy or move file." I tried to rename it, everything. It simply WILL NOT DIE.:dft007:angry If I just leave both vol files hang out in there (altered, nothing-in-it file and my vol file) and restart, the phone freezes at the WM6.1 screen and I have to master reset. It even wouldn't master reset one time, so I had to flash it using the 6.1 how to sticky and the flash file VRZ_P3_NN_C_07.7A.00I_UPGRADE_FILE_01.sbf . I'm beside myself. I thought I did it all correctly, and it's just bricking and being ridiculous. Any help would be awesome. Thanks in advance. ------------- Edit: Ok, after getting really angry, I renamed the unwanted pim an expletive, and was able to move it to the MUSIC folder. Then I copied in my old pim, restarted the phone, and Bam! My contacts were all there. Just goes to show you that cursing actually can help you. haha!
