I am currently using a Torch 9800 on my old Dell computer using Microsoft Outlook 2003. I just bought a new Dell computer and have installed Microsoft Office 2010 with Outlook. I would like to transfer all my data from my BlackBerry Torch / Outlook to my new computer.
Do I install BlackBerry desktop on my new computer and just perform a sync with my Torch or should I do a back-up on my old computer and restore the back-up file on my new computer?
Solved! Go to Solution.

It worked fine. One problem I have is that almost every time I open Outlook I see a reminder for events that occurred a long time ago, such as 60 to 99 weeks old. Do you know why it does this? When I first do a sync with my new computer I got over 200 reminders. That I understand because it was the first time my new Outlook was showing those events but I don't understand why it's happening now.

I didn't find this setting. I decided to sync only future events. That may fix the problem.
Another problem I finding is that there are event conflicts where I have an event that is already on my Outlook and device. I go back and change, say, the time on only my device but I get a conflict. This should be a conflict because I only changed the event on the device. I can understand there being a conflict if I changed the time on the device and computer to different times.
Thanks for your comments.

My advice to use to take your balckberry back to where you got it and get ride of it and trade it in for a Galaxy.
The synch process to Outlook is pathetic. It doesn't let you choose a different Contact List, and even then it doesn't load all the contacts correctly.
I just got an IPAD and it's miles ahead. I don't know what kind of people they have in their development department, but it seeam as if they have totally lost the concept of providing an a friendly inteface.
I can;t wait until my contract expires.
Sorry RIM, but you've lost it.
