    I recently signed up for backupbuddy.net professional and things were great for the first week. Last friday I had to do a full restore for a problem with documents-to-go. Today I discovered that my scheduled online back up had failed since friday night. I tried manual backup today. Treo established connection with server, but 5 second later gives a messege " connection lost. please check your phone signal strength and try again later". Internet and mail2web EAS work fine. Are their servers down? Has anyone else experienced this?

    Hence if you need to have a dependable backup, stick to a device based solution.

    Yes I agree with the above statement. I did a synch with my desktop. The data on my Treo700p was corrupted. The Backupbuddy.net did a trickle update. Now the .Net had the same currupt data as my device. I asked BB folks if they can roll back a few hours to before the curruption occurred. They sent the response below. This was not what I wanted to hear. Luckily for me I had synched a few hours back on a second laptop which minimized some of my data loss.

    I tried the new BB buddy software. It does not backup to CD cards. Instead it goes to the harddrive on the desktop during a synch. I have been on the road without my laptop when my Treo broke. I got a new one from Sprint. All I had to do was transfer the SD from the broken Treo to the new one and do a restore. I do not think that this can still be done with the new BB.

    I tried NVBackup. It is free. I have not tried a restore but I see others in the forum that say it works except for Java. I don't know which of my apps are Java and if this effects me. I liked the interface on NVBackup. It shows the files in a tiny font as they are being saved to the CD card. It also allows for incremental backups which go very fast.

    I liked the simple BackupBuddy version one a lot. I wish it worked the same way as it used to.

    I hope this helps the community.

    I received this e-mail response from the BackupBuddy manufacturer:

    Thanks for your message. We apologize for any trouble, but BackupBuddy.Net only saves one current backup set. If you had a trickle backup after the data was lost, that would update the backup files on the server. There isn't a way we can go back to a previous backup set with BackupBuddy.Net. If you are using BackupBuddyVFS pro and have a previous checkpoint, or if you are using BackupBuddy for Windows pro, you could go back to an older backup file or files.

    Are your contacts on your desktop from when you synced with it? You may be able to get them back from the palm desktop software on the desktop?

    Sincerely,

    Bobby Genest

    Blue Nomad sent me an e-mail explaining that BB VFS stores backups to the memory card. I may give it a try. The link and message is below:

    Yes, BackupBuddyVFS is a palm program that you can use to backup data TO the memory card. We have a pro version and a personal version. Please try the demo version and see how you like it. You can get the pro version here:

    It's also good to keep some old backups around. In BackupBuddy, these are called checkpoints. I use Resco Backup (see resco.net) and have it back my device up every day at 2am, and have it keep the last 7 backups, so I always have a week worth of old files in case something gets corrupted.

    I also use BackupBuddy.net in case my device is stolen and my SD card, along with all my backups, is lost with it.
