Desktop Manager Back Up Slow

[ Edited ]

Hey guys,


Just curious, how long on average does it take to back up your Z10?


I'm trying to back up just my applications and settings - and it seems to take 40 minutes to back up! Just wondering if thats normal! Also do you find syncing can take a while? Not sure if there are amny tips to get this process to go faster.


I'm using a Mac as well with the latest version of software. Wondering if its any faster on Windows.

Re: Desktop Manager Back Up Slow

Hello kevinkhu5 and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for your question.


Depending on the amount of data you have saved on your device, backup times can vary. 


Also, the time it takes to sync will vary depending on the amount of data you are transferring. 


Hope this helps to answer your question.
