Windows Mobile Backup

Backing up the data on your handheld is one of the easiest and most important things you can do. If you've set up your Oracle Sync Utility, you don't have to worry about your Calendar. It's already backed up on our Oracle Calendar server. However, your Address Book and such are stored only on your handheld and the computer with which it syncs.

When things go wrong on a handheld device, data loss is a very likely result. Back it up on a regular basis; once per month is a good, safe bet.

Backing up Your PocketPC on a Windows Machines:

  1. Make sure the PPC is in it's cradle
  2. Open ActiveSync
  3. Go to the Tools menu
  4. Choose "Backup/Restore"
  5. Make a backup of everything. This can possibly take up to 15 minutes.
