HP iPAQ rz1700 Pocket PC series - How Do I Back Up and Restore My Data?

Overview
This document contains information about how to backup and restore the data for the iPAQ rz1700.
It is good practice to regularly back up the data in HP iPAQ to the personal computer. This reduces the chance of having to re-enter lost information into the HP iPAQ.
Because there is a partnership between HP iPAQ and the personal computer, it is easy to set ActiveSync to create a backup of the data each time connecting the two to synchronize.
To Backup the Data
To create a backup file of the contents of the HP iPAQ,
  1. Connect HP iPAQ to the personal computer with the sync cable.
  2. On the personal computer, open ActiveSync by clicking Start > Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync.
  3. In ActiveSync, click Tools > Backup/Restore... > Backup tab.
    • To let ActiveSync automatically create a backup file called Backup.stg (the .stg stands for “storage”), click OK.
    • To use a different filename for the backup file, click Change and type the new filename.
  4. Click Automatically back up each time the device connects and click OK.
  caution:
The restore process removes all information from the HP iPAQ and replaces it with the information in the backup file. Once started, the restore process cannot be cancelled.
To Restore the Data
To use the backup file in the personal computer to restore the contents of the HP iPAQ:
  1. On the HP iPAQ, close all applications and connect it to the personal computer.
  2. On the personal computer, open Microsoft ActiveSync by clicking Start > Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync.
  3. In ActiveSync, click Tools > Backup/Restore... > Restore tab.
  4. Locate the backup file and click OK.
