Also, if you have the latest version of Desktop Manager (v5) you can enable encryption for your backups:

You just need to do two backups:

1) Desktop Manager backup of all files from BB "device memory".

2) Regular backup of all files from media card to your PC. You can use a batch file, a script, a backup program, choice is yours. The PC will see the media card as a removable drive.

You need to enable mass storage mode in your BB: Options -> Media Card

A few tips before you install the Desktop Manager:

a) install the version without Roxio (Roxio can be a source of endless headaches), look for the installer "English w/o Media Manager".

b) during installation uncheck the option to include BB Automatic Update. If you include it then the following happens:

- a Windows startup process will be installed with no option to turn it off in DM's GUI
- Vendor.xml file will be automatically reloaded even if it was deliberately deleted, which makes upgrading the OS from another vendor impossible, ref:
BB 8830, OS, DM, Bell Canada BIS, Windows XP-SP3
