PIM Backup Description

Made by: DotFred

Best Windows Mobile Free Backup App 2009 PIM Backup allows you to backup/restore the Personal information of the Pocket PC like Contacts, Appointments, Tasks etc. To backup and restore your Android phone there are many other apps like ASTRO, Phone Clone, etc.

Restore contacts:

It is possible now to restore a text file containing contacts backed up from other applications, like in Outlook Express, the only constraint is that the first line should contain the fields and the fields need a separator. (See screenshots). The tool allows to map default fields to fields found in the file. It is possible now to insert duplicates.

Backup messages:

The mail database is completely parsed to retrieve all the messages stored in every directory and subdirectory. It is possible to select which account and directories should be backed up. You can save attachments as wel if they exist on the pocket pc.

Restore messages:

Same as the backup, you can select which account and directories should be restored to the device. Caution, if an account doesnt exist on the pocket pc, this application will discard the messages that belong to that account.

Restore appointments:

There was a bug in PPCBckpContacts where appointments with the same name on different dates werent restored. This should be fixed in this tool.

Schedule backup:

It is possible to schedule a backup, each day of the week and this at a specific hour. If the pocket pc is suspended, it will wake up and do the backup. You can eventually control the number of backups to keep and switch off the pocket pc after the scheduled backup is finished.
The schedule backup creates a notification that can be cleared via the Options Menu.

File types:

There is only one file type now, which is .pib (Personal Information Backup), in fact it is just a zip file (so you can open it with a zip application) which contain the different text files used in PPCBckpContacts, so you can still extract these files, edit them on a pc using Excel or Notepad and eventually restore them without putting them back in the .pib file.

For users with Windows Mobile 2003 SE, please download this software here.

this is an invaluable tool, most useful if you are planning a hard reset. the difference betweenthis and Microsoft my phone is that PIM Backup saves an editable file to your storage card. it can back up contacts, email,tasks,SMS. microsoft my phone requires you to be connected to the net to retrieve your data

sbu - you need to transfer it to your phone and run it there.

Hi, Anybody has experience below error? "PPCPimBackup.exe is not a valid win32 application". Appreciate your prompt response, I need to backup my message in my htc phone that is going to be sent to htc service centre. Do we need to put the zip file in the sync folder in my laptop? or should we extract it first to .exe and put in the synch folder in my laptop? Thanks in advance!

a very good tool. it is my favorit pim app.

I can successfully run the backup and produce the .PIB (ZIP) file. When I extract files from that they do not appear to be in a text format - I cannot read them, at least not in a convenient manner using either Excel or Notepad as suggested. I would like to get these into XML ( need to transfer to other platforms). I'd be glad to write the conversion code if you could supply the file formats for these .PBA, PBC, .PBL, .PBX files. Thanx

I have used this program since its inception. I just picked up an HD2 to replace my TP2. I ran a full back up on the TP2 and restored it on the HD2 in about five minutes. The store said it would take them over an hour and a half to do the same thing.
