    Hello,

    I can sync the folders i choose on my PC to my BB. But if I try and backup or sync the pics on my phone with my PC nothing happens. Ive tried Sync To, Copy To, created the folders and tried again. Nothing gets the data from my phone in to the folder on my PC. Happens with all categories, pictures, videos and documents.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    If all fails, open Windows Explorer / ( My) Computer / This PC and check for a Z: or Y: drive while BB Link is open.

    This should be your phone's internal memory or your SDCARD.

    Just copy stuff manually, or dump the whole lot into a folder (CTRL+A, CTRL +C, CTRL+V etc.) from or to the phone. Done. Sift through stuff and duplicates later, but you got it from one to the other device.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the tip. I knew I could do that but I don't want to have to manually sync the pics on my phone to my pc each time.

    Check read / write permissions of the folders you are syncing to.

    In the worst case, write a batch files script that copies the files to your computer without overwriting. You can even run that through Task Scheduler in Windows.

    Do you know how to use xcopy or robocopy on the Windows command line?

    Check here:

    http://www.mydigitallife.info/roboco...-and-examples/

    Just put that whole line into a text file, rename it to something like

    copyfrombb.bat

    And make sure you have file name extensions shown, and the ending (after the dot), is bat

    robocopy /ZB /S Z:\pictures\*.* C:\Users\myusername\myspecialpicturesfolder

    You can also use xcopy, just an example. Go to Windows command line and type

    xcopy /?

    for syntax instructions.

    For example I use :

    xcopy /z /d /y /v /e Z:\randomfolder C:\Users\myusername\bbbackup

    This option will update any newer files from the selected folder on the phone to the PC's folder, will be restartable, include subdirectories, verify if copied correctly and overwrite older files without asking.

    Just adapt to your needs, and put into a batch file. The batch file can also be called automatically in Windows Task Scheduler.

    ____________________

    Now, if all that is too hard, just make sure BB Link is open and your phone's memory is accessible under Z: or Y: drive letters for internal and SDCARD, if you have one.

    Just go to Microsoft and download SyncToy. As long as the phone is connected and accessible as a drive with folders, it doesn?t really matter what program does the syncing.

    Hope that helps. God bless.

    Awesome thanks guys. Hopefully BlackBerry will fix this, I create enough bat files at work lol. I will check the permissions though, figured it would prompt me about it if that was the case. Thanks again!
