[jp] Restore handheld?

This seems a basic question to ask but I can't find a definitive answer
on the web about how to do it:

How do I use jpilot (or pilot-link?) to restore my palm after it has
completely lost everything due to battery failure?

It would seem I should do a "Restore Handheld" and then a normal sync
but this restores various old records. What am I doing wrong?

Also, why can't I just do something like the following?

% pilot-xfer -r ~/.jpilot/backup
% pilot-xfer -i ~/.jpilot/*.pdb
% pilot-xfer -m ~/.jpilot/*.pc3
