Default deleting a back-up

Please Login to Remove!

When I was installing something via desktop manager, I accidentally had the device back up on my computer. Since I am at work, I'd prefer to remove the back-up files.

Can anyone tell me where they would be stored and how I can remove anything that was saved as a result of this?

As the directory is user specified you will have to search for a *.ipd file. Of you can connect the device and hit backup/restore and then select restore. It will show the files and ask which you want to use. This will show the location.

If not in My Documents, you could open DM and launch backup, then note the default directory in the "select file for full backup" window that opens. Then cancel out after you note the directory. Otherwise, the full backups are .ipd files--you could search on *.ipd.

EDIT: Boy, am I slow. What he said above.

Default IPD search

Thanks, the search for *.ipd worked.

Appreciate it
