Problems Backing up Native Playbook Contacts
So twice now since 2.0, I've done a full backup and restore on the OS... I use it for work (BYOD), so it had a years worth of files on it, with no ability to back anything up before Desktop Manager 7 came out, and I was starting to get ghosts in the machine. Then the first OS reload didn't take...
For the most part everything worked fine. Except for some stupid reason neither restore brought back any of my email accounts, my locally-saved emails, or my locally-saved contacts! The email is no big deal, but I have to manually input all my contacts (they are saved on my locked-down work BB). I had stupidly just finished doing this (including resizing a pile of photos for all the contacts) before the first reload. And then, because I figured that it must have my mistake the first time, I stupidly finished typing them all back in a second time before realizing I had to reload the OS the second time.
So, does anyone know how to properly back-up your Playbook data so that your PIM info is restored? Or alternatively, does anyone know how to get contact data easily transferred from a work BlackBerry to a personal PlayBook?
Any advice would be appreciated.
