Default Backing up on BB 7290, Restoring on 8700c

Please Login to Remove!

Good morning, all,

I apologize if this is a dumb question but I need to ask:

Last week, my 7290 was stolen. It has since been deactivated and rendered somewhat useless to whoever has it. I've been pretty good at backing the unit up every week or so.

The question I have is, can I restore certain apps from the 7290 into the 8700c that will be my replacement? Most specifically, can I restore the contents of the Password Keeper application? I had a lot of important information there, all of it retrievable, but I'd like to avoid re-entering everything.

I guess another question to ask would be: what, if anything, cannot be restored from the 7290 to the 8700c?

Thanks, in advance, to everyone for your support!

There will be facets of the 7290 that cannot be restored into the 8700, but those should really be OS specific to the 7290. Most of the stuff will come over.

When you open the file in backup/restore and have the device attached, those items that the 8700 will accept will be selectable, those that will not transfer will not be selectable.

I concur, this is definitely doable. As is backing up a 7780 and restoring to a 7290, backing up a 7250 and restoring to a 8700, and backing up a 7250 or a 7290 and restoring to a 8100!

Not all passwords within Password Keeper were saves when I upgraded from the 8700 to the 8800 last week? There must be @ least 10 missing??

Anyone have any ideas? I did a regular weekly backup on the old device religiously. Shouldn't I be able to restore just the Password Keeper from one of those old backup files?

Anyone?

TIA

yep, find the most recent backup file, my system automatically saves the backups with the date in the filename. I don't recall if the Password keeper is named as such in the restore application, you might need to select the RDS databases to get that data back.

Can't seem to locate that option.

THX again.
