The first thing you want to do is backup your information, just in case something happens. BlackBerry Curves can back up almost everything on the device, ensuring the safety of your data. Click on the “Backup and Restore" button on the Desktop Manager. You now have three options: Backup, Restore and Advanced.
The backup process is simple, just click on “Backup," choose which directory on the PC you want to store the backup file in, and press “Save." The restore process works almost the same way, click on “Restore" and then choose the backup file you want to restore. If you have a large amount of data this process may take a few minutes. When you restore data any changes that you made to the phone since the last time you backed it up will be lost. You can also click on the “Options" button to set up automatic backups, so that the BlackBerry Desktop Manager will make backups every few days when the Curve is connected to the PC without you having to remember to do so.
The “Advanced" button allows you to only restore certain parts of your backup data. When you click on the “Advanced" button, the right side of the screen will populate with the data on the Curve that is currently connected to the PC. You can click on “File" on the left side of the screen and import a backup file. Click on something on the right and press the “<<" button to change only that part of the database. Alternatively you can click on something on the left and hit the “>>" button to change only that part of the phone database.
