    Q: How often do you Backup your device?

    Advertisement



    How often would you say you back up your device as to not loose your contacts, calendar information, tasks, memo pad?

    And would an application that did a wireless backup of your device while you slept (ie midnight) and if your device did crash, would be able to reload all the information you lost interest you?

    What do you believe a fair monthly price would be to have this service provided to you?

    How often would you want your device backed up? Every night? Every 2 nights? Once a week?

    I back up once a week.
    to be honest an app would not help me but alot of others would be interested

    Re: Q: How often do you Backup your device?

    I currently backup 1x a week... Question from me is would I have to keep my computer on overnight (which I never do) for the wireless backup to work? Not sure if someone would pay a monthly fee for something that takes relatively 5 - 10 minutes while doing other things on the computer, but that's just my opinion

    Re: Q: How often do you Backup your device?

    i back up from work and home. to lose my data would literally cripple me. i could care less about 3rd party apps (i know you didn't list those) but my critical data like phone book/calendar....i would cry so hard! sooo with that being said, yeah, it would be nice to have something that would sync automatically while i sleep...how bout every night, no more than $20 a month. i mean, how many more freaking monthly fees do i need and what stacey said too...and, would it just sync with one pc (obviously a home PC, since i think it would be a big NO NO to do that on my work pc)

    I back it up once or twice a month as I can always do a sync and restore the data. Plus I generally have my laptop around to doa quick restore if need be.

    Such a back up app would not appeal to me.

    Re: Q: How often do you Backup your device?

    Sorry, I will explain a little more.

    It would be logged onto a secure server with all of the privacy in tact.

    It would automatically do it at any time you set it for (since some people work nights and are asleep during the day).

    So in a way it would work as a 3rd party hosted BES, sans the email.

    So in the instance that you did loose all of your data during a crash, all you would have to do is log in or email us 24hrs a day, and we could initiate the system to restore the data into your device.

    I know that Cherri mentioned no more than $20 a month, but we were thinking more along the lines of $2.99-$4.99/month.

    Re: Q: How often do you Backup your device?

    Less than $5.00 a month to allow me to be even lazier. That kinda sounds worth it.

    I don't even know when the last time I did a backup was, probably Jan.

    Just my luck I will wake up tomorrow with a 507 error.

    Re: Q: How often do you Backup your device?

    I sync all my PIM stuff periodically. It really depends on how much activity I have on them. I backup before I do anything that deals with loading or erasing my data, or Databases, ie install or remove anything using apps loader or installing anything OTA. I don't see any reason to pay for this proposed service myself but I can see that others might.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~once.a week, when I plug into DM, all my info is on BES, and my exchange is backed up also, so for me I cannot see it being worthwhile, for others though, on BIS and who do take advantage of auto backup in DM a possible, cheap, solution

    I make a backup once a week.

    I don't see a need for a separate backup software as the process takes very little time and the Desktop Manager works fine.

    Re: Q: How often do you Backup your device?

    I honestly backup about once a month or whenever I change OS's. So I don't need a program to do this operation.
