    back-up problem, desparate help is needed

    Advertisement



    my back-up on desktop manager currently saves everything in IPD format, but its unreadable, and complete jibrish, what format should it be? I cannot do much regarding upgrading, deleting, changing etc, without first backing up, so I need help pretty desperately. I had already posted a thread about it. am trying again.

    Your Backup is saving in the correct format its not supposed to be read, it is a backup to be reapplied to the device when you lose information or upgrade etc...

    The IPD file will be recognized by Desktop Manager, so if you need to apply a backup to your device just use the "restore" feature of Backup and Restore.

    Another choice you have is to sync your BlackBerry to Outlook. Then you will have everything available on your PC, and Outlook will serve as your backup.

    shira, If you really need to read things from your Backup such as messages and some other things, check out ABC Amber Blackjack. It is an inexpensive application that lets you export messages, contacts and other things from your IPD backup files to multiple formats for use as necessary.

    hope this helps
