Backing up images via Desktop Manager

When I perform a full backup via the Desktop Software, looking at it loading it backups my most important files (messages & autotext etc) however I never see it backing up my images that I have taken with the camera.

 

All images are stored on my media card when I use the camera on my blackberry. When making a backup as above, do these images get backed up to?

Your Media Card is not backed up with the Desktop Manager > Backup process.

 

You can include the on-board device memory in the backup (open DM > Backup > Options and check the box "Backup on-board device memory").

Re: Backing up images via Desktop Manager

Ohh right I see. What is the easiest and quickest automated way of backing up these images? A simple batch script would be ideal.

Re: Backing up images via Desktop Manager

A lot of people use SyncToy for syncing your Media Card (or a folder within) to your PC.

 

Sync = Backup, same difference.

I am using BlackBerry Desktp Manager v5.0 with a BlackBerry 9630 Storm.

When I connect the device to the desktop, the only thing in the 'Media Card'

directory is a subdirectory named 'slacker'.  I have photos stored on the

SD card and I can see them with BBFileScout.  Any idea how I can see

the other contents of the SD card on the desktop & back it up?

 

Thanks,

Steve

Re: Backing up images via Desktop Manager

 

I answerd my own question. What is available on the desktop is different depending

on the Mass Storage setting on the device (Home->Options->Memory->Auto Enable Mass

Storage Mode When Connected). 

 

If the Mass Storage option is disabled, you can see a limited number of files in te

desktop's Explorer:


 

 

If the Mass Storage option is enabled, you can see all the fles on the SD card:


 

 

Thanks,

Steve
