The importance of backups cannot be overstated. It is important you understand the backup and
. .
restore features that are available to you on your iPAQ Pocket PC. Understanding how these
. .
applications work can help you develop a sound backup and restore process for your unit.
. .
. .
. .
All of the iPAQ devices discussed in this white paper use the Microsoft™ ActiveSync backup and
. .
restore utility. All of the units mentioned, except the h1910 iPAQ, also have their own backup and
. .
. .
restore utilities. This white paper discusses the ActiveSync utility as well as the individual
. .
applications found on the h3800, h3900, and h5400 series devices.
. .
. .
As with any backup, always verify that your backup target has enough space to accommodate the
. .
. .
information you are backing up. If you exceed the storage limitations of your backup target, the
. .
backup will not successfully complete.

Microsoft ActiveSync provides comprehensive non-selective backup/restore functionality, storing
. .
the Pocket PC applications and data in the "backup.stg" file in a folder on your computer. This
. .
. .
backup supports both "full" and "incremental" backup operations. For additional information, see
. .
"backup" in the ActiveSync Help utility.
. .
. .
. .
Note: You can rename the backup file to include the date or other information when multiple
. .
. .
instances of backups are desired. The file extension must remain .stg for the file to be
. .
recognized by a Restore function.
. .
. .
full backup—This option creates a copy of all data in the iPAQ Pocket PC RAM and
. .
. .
saves it on your computer. The time this operation takes depends on the speed of the
. .
ActiveSync connection and how much data resides on your iPAQ Pocket PC. A full
. .
. .
backup operation is recommended the first time the backup operations are enabled.
. .
. .
incremental backup—This option updates the backup file stored on your PC with the
. .
. .
data that has changed on the iPAQ Pocket PC since the last backup operation. This
. .
backup completes in a much shorter time than a full backup.
