With so much more information being accumulated on our networks, computers, and
. .
. .
devices, such as handhelds, the importance of backing up our data has become just as
. .
. .
significant. Whether for legal purposes or in case of system failures, backups of our

computer devices serve the purpose of retaining our information for future use. Not only
. .
. .
is a solid process for backing up our data important, but also a sound restore process is
. .

also vital for maintaining the integrity of the information.

This white paper describes the backup and restore applications available with the iPAQ

Pocket PCs h3800, h3900, h5400, and h1910Series. The tools used to perform the
