Backup before upgrading to winmo 6.5

I just want to back up my stuff such as contacts, calenda, texts and nothing more.

Re: Backup before upgrading to winmo 6.5

It should be, but its a personal preference. Just remember that MyPhone only backs up certain items.
I always like to keep a backup on my card.
I always have two backups PPCPIMBackup(PIM backup) and SPB backup(full systembackup) just incase something goes wrong.

Re: Backup before upgrading to winmo 6.5

quick question, when you use PPCPIMBackup and upgrade, do you have to reinstall all the CABs again?

Re: Backup before upgrading to winmo 6.5

When you upgrade operating systems, you will want to manually reinstall software, but can safely restore data, contacts, etc. But don't do a full system restore in this scenario

Thats all I'm using now. Active sync backs up less than my phone and PPCPIMBackup backs up speed dialing, but has never restored it correctly. It probably would not hurt to use PPCPIMbackup if you know your flashing, but I like MY Phone because you can reset your phone anywhere and still access your back up. Just be carefull with the free trial of the premium options. I tested the feature that hard resets your phone. It took 5 minutes before it reset. Come to find out it was reformatting my 8 gb sd card. Just remove the card before "testing" this feature.

Re: Backup before upgrading to winmo 6.5

Thanks guys

i guess since i dont have too applications installed right now, My Phone would be good enough, i have tried deleting/archiving, restoring on it... it's been working great.

might have to get the other 2 softwares after upgrading to 6.5 and start installing like mad.
