I was *this* close to doing a hard reset the other day, thinking it wouldn't be that big of a deal, since I use Sprite backup and could quickly rebuild everything by doing a backup restore. Then I got to thinking: the reason my device seems slow and sluggish is because the registry is cluttered up, so by doing a hard reset AND a backup restore, won't it also restore the same cluttered environment as before? Or am I just over thinking this?

Hi Chris,

You are absolutely correct. If the registry is cluttered up in your backup, it will be cluttered up when your unit is restored. A feature that would be great in backup programs would be a way to clean up the registry, the problem it that the restore process would need to be aware of how each of the application is installed and essentially perform a reinstall using your current settings.

Unfortunately today, the best way to clean house is to manually reinstall your applications using the ActiveSync feature or by using .cabs on you device.
