The suffix is a binary bitmap showing which letters in the filename are capitals. For instance, 80000000 means that the first letter is capitalized. This is because database names are case sensitive, while the file system that is used is not. The first version of the T5 didn't have these suffixes, and as a result had a serious bug, in that its database names were case insensitive, contrary to Palm specs.

By the way, I don't have an updated T5. (I don't update ROMs on my devices, because then I'd have to click-through a EULA that I don't want to accept.) So I developed unbackup for the original T5. You might check, just in case, whether it might not work better in TX mode.
