To add, Link is to BB10 what Desktop Manager is to BBOS. I haven't had a problem with switching from 9900 to Z10 and then to Passport, but some individuals have experienced lost data. Also, it is buggy as a Florida summer evening when it comes to sync'ing with Outlook, going by complaints on the forums.
Protect does not backup BB10 devices to BlackBerry servers as it does for BBOS devices. The other features are there, but those aren't that important. The OTA backup was the valuable feature to users.
There are third-party apps that will backup to the cloud (Box, etc.), device storage, or SD card. I don't use any of them. I gather there are some key databases they don't back up, I don't recall which.
