Z10 Backups now Smaller

I downloaded the new blackberry drive desktop software. My backups with the new software are now 500,000kb and previous to this they were 1.2 million kb. Does anyone know if blackberry as condensed the size of its backups. I am still doing a full backup and am concerned I may be missing some data from being backed up.

Please use plain text.

My first backup was 106Mb, the latest with media is 2.7Gb.

Make sure you're getting Settings, Media, and Application Data.

Yeah there is the option on BlackBerry drive for a full or custom backup. I am doing full, same as with the previous version of drive, and my backups are half the size. Maybe I will try custom next time and manually select everything.

It's BlackBerry Link, not Drive.

I often make each backup separately just to make sure I have everything.
