    Re: Backup ?'s

    I do a back-up once a week. I sync every few days. I do not delete the previous back-ups. I don't really have a reason to keep them, I just do. You never know when you might need to revert to an old back-up.

    Re: Backup ?'s

    I back up between 2 and 3 times a week and keep all my backups (still have them from March when I had my 8100). The reason I keep them all is a few months ago I installed something (one of the visual voicemail programs floating around by simulscribe) and it corrupted my Profiles. Then when I tried to do a restore it would not go and stopped when it got to Profiles. I had to go back "in time" to a previous backup file a few weeks earlier.

    I also do a backup about 2 times a week. Keep all the old ones too. I still have backups from phones that don't even exist anymore. You just never, never know when you're gonna need it.

    If you are on a BES, does the wireless reconciliation and sync also sync your settings? Profiles and Profile Options/Browser Configuration/Bookmarks/Message Options and all the other settings that are saved when backing up using Desktop Manager.


    Never mind, missed that last sentence. Sorry.

    ~via BB (
    I do it once a week.Although it depends upon what am I doing.
    Unless you are installing lots of stuff or adding/deleting things I think even once per week is more than enough.
    For user that are on BES that is automatically done based on server configuration.
