    Hi all,

    My PC crashed, but I will have the opportunity to grab some key files and back them up before wiping everything and reimaging my HDD.

    In terms of Desktop Manager, what files do I need to grab to avoid losing as much as possible (settings, contacts, etc.)?

    Thanks!

    For your bb configuration setting and device memory, you need to save the backup files made with desktop manager. These are ipd and sometimes cabinet files and pool files.

    You have made backup files using DM I assume????

    Sorry... forgot to mention... I just got my Bold a couple weeks ago, and have really only used DM to sync Outlook contacts. So maybe there's really no use in saving any DM files?

    Obviously I'll save my Outlook contacts.

    If you didn't make a specific backup file using the backup feature of DM then there is nothing to save.

    OK, kinda figured as much. Wasn't sure if DM also kept a file w/ my contacts after the sync, but I imagine that info is in the backup file once I actually perform one.

    Thanks!
