Default Can I downgrade DM without causing problems? I'm trying to fix errors backing up.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all-

Ok, here's the issue.

I have an 8100 Pearl running OS, using DM 4.6 (and then tried DM 4.7).

Whenever I try to do a backup using DM, it will start the backup, and then it will give me the "error backing up database" message, and the backup will cease running. It errors out on different databases at different times.

I have done a ton of research on this issue on many different forums. It appears that people have been having this problem with many different devices, on many different databases, running many different OS versions. The only thing that I have noticed to be consistent is that all people experiencing this problem are running DM 4.6 or 4.7. This may be flawed logic, but I'm now inclined to believe that the problem is related to DM 4.6 and 4.7.

I would like to see if downgrading to DM 4.5 would solve the problem. However, I don't want to introduce new problems into the mix by doing so.

So, does anybody know if I can successfully downgrade from DM 4.7 to DM 4.5 without experiencing any problems (conflicts, sync issues, etc)?

Search around for "clean uninstall" instructions & you'll be fine.
