Just purchased the Undo Delete apps and successfully installed on my Blackberry 9900, V.4.0.21,
Yesterday I tried to backup only my Calendar entries with the Device Manager, 1/4 thru the synchronization, I quickly terminated the process cos I realized I've chosen a wrong option to backup, and it says something like "past calendar entries will be deleted and future date entries will be synchronized etc........"
Immediately when I stopped the process, I checked back my phone calendar and the past entries in my phone calendar were gone, check the Device Manager hoping 1/4 of the data has been backup but unfortunately inside no data, important entries backdated from 1 June to 13 Nov 2012 are very crucial to me.
Thus I've no choice but to purchase this "Undo Delete To Restore" apps thinking I could recover the lost data.
I installed successfully on my phone but nothing happened, so I clicked on settings and choose the correct option and save it, then I clicked on Calendar but saw No Item at all. (wonder am I doing the correct setting)
Can someone pls help me to recover the lost calendar entries cos some data are very important to me, now it looks like the apps "Undo Delete" is either not working or totally cannot retrieve my lost data.
Pls help, I'm desperate to recover back my data, pls help me !

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
I don't know that app specifically, but like all such things, it likely depends on its existing on the device BEFORE the deletion occurs (so that it can be keeping a record of deletions, and thereby have a source for restore). BBs don't have any "trash", "recycle", or other bins from which to recover things from. Once something is deleted on the BB, it's gone for good. There may be ways to scan the unallocated memory areas of the BB itself to search for lost data, but that would be something quite high tech and not likely to be a consumer level item available for a mere $1.99.
However, I am also confused by the different terms you used in your post...you said you tried to backup, then you talked about terminating 1/4 of the way through synchronization. Synchronization and backup are two completely different functions within the Desktop Software. What you should have been using, if backup was indeed your desire, was the backup function:
If you had, you would have, on your PC, a resulting IPD or BBB data file that could be used as the source of restore. But, from what you describe, I suspect you actually selected the Synchronization function, which could indeed result in what you experienced.
If your lost data does not exist on your PC (in your Organizer app...e.g., Outlook, or in a backup PST from your main data files within), and if you have not been properly and regularly using the above backup procedure, and further if you are not using the free BB Protect app, then you likely have no source of data from which to recover, and have migrated from the latter to the former in this old saying:
Proper backup processes, using all of the free tools RIM provides, simply are not optional.

Thank you so much for taking your time to reply to me, appreciate that.
Ok sorry for the terms that I'm using cos I'm not a techie. My initial intention was to transfer my calendar entries to my computer Outlook (never sync before, Microsoft Outlook totally empty), by doing that I believe I need to use Device Manager to sync if not how can I do the synchronization right ?
What I meant is that I used Device Manager to do a synchronization with my Outlook Calendar, during the sync process(assuming 100 entries were found and now in the process of synchronization) I decided to cancel the action halfway thru cos I realized I've chosen a wrong settings option to synchronize, and it says something like "past calendar entries will be deleted and future entries will be copied etc.......something like that, I'm not exactly sure word for word".
I quickly checked my phone calendar and my past date entries were all missing except the future date entries still intact. Now I checked my Outlook Calendar and its still empty, I'm quite surprise cos I thought during the sync process about 200+ entries were transfered and some data might have actually transferred to Outlook but its still empty.
I really need to retrieve my missing calendar items backdated from 1 June 2012 to 13 Nov 2012, its crucial to me!
I'm just hoping those missing data could still be retrieveable from somewhere in the phone hardisk or phone memory etc.......
Hi sdgardne, I wonder if there is any software in the market or expertise in mobile phone data recovery centre could help user like me to recover back those important lost data ?
Pls help or advise me, thank you very much, appreciate that.
