    Need the boards help! Need to do a selective backup...

    Advertisement



    Hey guys,
    I need some help. I need to wipe my OS clean, had an issue with my device, and I want to backup my ringtones, bb messenger, and photo's, but in the advanced backup, they arent labeled as such. Everything else I can push using the BES. Soooooo does anyone know what options to backup for those 3 things? Thanks!

    I am not completely 100% positive on this, however if you get the most recent Desktop Manager 4.1.1.12, it should automatically backup all of that. Atleast it did for me when I upgraded to the new OS. It actually surprised the hell out of me when I loaded the new OS and did a restore that it was all there. I was expecting to lose it all and had already emailed myself the pictures and web addresses of the ringtones and whatnot that I had. Maybe it just was in a good mood that day, I dunno...
    I got the 4.1.1.12 from www.t-mobile.com/bbupgrade.

    Yes, a full backup on ANY desktop manager from 4.1 on will backup all that, but I only want to selectively backup the ringtones, bb messenger, and photo's. (everything else is backuped wirelessly to our BES). So im looking to see what i need to select for those options. Thanks though

    Open DM, select Backup and Restore, Advanced, select the database you want to backup. If you are still using Berry Pix, include the following along with BlackBerry Messenger.

    BlackBerry Messenger
    Berry Pix Device Sync
    Berry Pix Picture Categories
    Berry Pix Picture Store
    Berry Pix PictureSync

    Couldn't tell you how to backup ringtones since I don't use them.

    Don't know if you can selectively backup the built in photo album app.

    Figured it out Its the content store for ringtones and photos in the built in app, and bb messenger is just labeled bb messenger. Hydn, Maybe add that to the FAQ? Since BES takes care of the rest, those are the only 3 things so far, other then OTA apps, that do not backup to the BES wirelessly.
