Check the operating system because we'll be reviewing software for Pocket PC, Windows Mobile, Palm, and BlackBerry devices. -- Editor
I'm a strong believer in backups and that goes for mobile devices as well as PC's. So, if you're looking for a backup solution for your Palm or Pocket PC device, take a look at Resco Backup. These folks have a history of cool programs for mobile devices and this one is no exception. This program is easy-to-use and intuitive, perfect for users with all levels of experience. I've tried a number of backup solutions for mobile devices and I think I like Resco Backup the best. You can setup the program to backup the things you want when you want, and that's a great feature as far as I'm concerned. The backup will run automatically on a schedule you determine and you really don't have to think about it much at all. You can tell Resco Backup when to backup your data and how many backups to keep. For example, if you want to keep 5 backup then when it gets to the sixth backup it removes the oldest of the backups. In this way you don't fill up your memory card with an unlimited number of backups. The program lets you do both full and partial backups and the backups can use compression so they take up less space. The program has a nice set of features that gives you a lot of flexibility when it comes to backing up your Palm or Pocket PC device. I like it so well that it's not only a Pick, but I'm also making it a Dr. File Finder Favorite and those are few and far between. So, if you're looking for a way to backup the data on your portable devices this may be the solution you need. Give it a try, I recommend it.
