    i did a device backup in July on a previous Tour. That was 9MB. Just did a device backup on my replacement Tour and it's 17MB! i haven't added but a few addresses. The replacement Tour was loaded with the July backup and like i said i haven't added any apps or songs, movies etc.

    Any reason why my backup doubled like this?

    If your backup is also backing up files on your media card, than your July backup is IN your August backup. So... If you make another backup now, you'll have both the 17MB and the 9MB files in there.
    To be sure, move the files from your SD card to a computer, and make another backup, and see if it's that much smaller now.
    Let us know the results.

    i didn't think a device backup also backed up the media card. i didn't even think of that! Thanks, i will try that when i get back to a PC.

    Now, if i go to restore using my AUGUST backup, will i have an issue with double data?
