BB World Edition 8830 - Can I Backup?

I have a World Edition 8830 Blackberry that is set up through my company to receive Outlook e-mail. I would like to be able to make a back up of my data on my home computer (Phone contacts, Calendar, Notes, etc.) using the Blackberry Desktop software, in case the phone ever loses the data and needs to be re-loaded.


Does the desktop software allow you to have a back up on one computer, while still connected on the office system? I tried to download the software, but am unsure which version to use. In addition, the 8830 isn't listed as a possible device on the BB website.
