Re: Touch Pro Backup Applications/Software

Ive been using SPB Backup for a couple of months now and have seen some problems. It backs up my HTC Touch Pro with no problems, but restoring is another issue. 50% of the time, the restore fails. I have noticed that if I try and restore the same backup again (after the failure), sometimes it actually works and I get a working restore, sometimes it doesn't. I have also read of others having similar problems here and there.

If I were to do it again, I would buy Sprite, not SPB Backup. I know a bunch of people here love SPB backup, but how many have done more than one or two restores? If you are looking into backup software, and are considering SBP Backup, I suggest you check out their troubleshooting forums... it may change your mind.

That is exactly what I found also. I tested the hell out of SPB/Sprite/Resco etc etc by hard resetting & then restoring BU files from all these programs to my TouchPro.

Although SPB always worked great in my old Titans, it fails on restore at least 50% of the time in my TP.

Sprite on the other hand, has not failed me yet.

Re: Touch Pro Backup Applications/Software

I still want someone to tell me how they got a full restore from htc backup. A few have said it worked but have not said how so i doubt that it does work.

Best backup program

Since I use Gmail and not Outlook, what do you suggest for a backup program for my calendar, contacts, settings, etc?
