Quick Search : Searches the locations if Palm Desktop was previously installed in Typical (default) mode. [C:\Palm, C:\Program Files Sony Handheld, and C:\Program Files\Palm]
Search my computer : Searches all hard drives and partitions. This search process may take more than ten minutes.
Manual search : Searches a specific location
Click the Next button.

On the "Migration Preferences" window, you can specify the desired user name to be used in the new Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software. You can choose to use the same name or enter a new user name. Select your preferred option and click Next.
NOTE: If more than one user's data should be transferred, select "Migrate another user" and click Finish to start the process again.
When you are finished transferring users, verify that the "Migrate another user" checkbox is unchecked and click Finish to complete the migration process.
NOTE: Only PIM data will be transferred to the new location. Applications will not be copied over by the CLIÉ Migration Tool. http://ciscdb.sel.sony.com/cgi-bin/...53&PASSVAL2=SMB
