So, if I get this straight:
1. The procedure described in this post will backup Applications (but not Application Data)
2. Desktop Manager's backup/restore feature will backup PIM (calendar, contacts...) and device settings (but not Applications or Aplication Data)
3. Therefore, there is no way to backup/restore Application Data. This is the case for both a wipe handheld AND a OS upgrade.
Am I right?
