When HP released their ROM Update for the iPAQ 6315, I hesitated installing it due the the instructions stating that all of the user installed programs would have to be re-entered, and that the backup file would not be recognized. I was greatly relieved when after I installed the update, I was able to perform a restore from the backup which eliminated my having to re-install all of the software.

The problem is that some backup contains configuration that may conflict with the new software installed with the ROM. It's always safer to install the programs again.

To do that now and start fresh would require a hard reset. Then before pluging the iPAQ again make sure you delete the partnership on ActiveSync in your computer, change the iPAQ name in Settings | System | About and connect.

You'll be asked to create partnership again, and then you can click on ActiveSync Add/Remote to install the programs again from the list.

I am not having any conflicts, and every thing is running great. Are you suggusting that I re-install the ROM Update anyway?

Don't need to, if all is ok. I had one upgrade that was supposed to erase the Smartphone's memory but everything was there afterwards...
