Backup your data

Post by Birdy » Sat Apr 05, 2008 9:21 am

Although BirdieSync has been heavily tested, it is strongly recommended to backup your data before installing a new version.

To regularly backup your data, for instance you can use PPCPimBackup on your Pocket PC and MozBackupfor your Thunderbird profiles.

Note that you can also simply backup your Thunderbird/Sunbird directories:

XP:

Thunderbird C:\Documents and Settings\<users name>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\<profile id>
Sunbird C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Sunbird\Profiles\<profile id>

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<users name>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\<profile id>
Vista: C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\<profile id>
(Application Data is a hidden folder: in explorer window, you must check the option "Show hidden files and folders")

You can also use a free online backup service. Some of them offer to backup up to 2Go for free. That can be enough to backup very sensitive data.
