ActiveSync Backup and Restore
Posted on 2006-06-01
I have backed up my IPAQ to a .stg file, and performed a firmware update on a IPAQ 4700, when I tried to reopen the file to restore my contacts and appointments I got an error saying the file could not be used, I have reverted back to the previous firmware but still get the same message, is there a way I can extract the contacts and appointments from the .stg file to put back onto the IPAQ.
I have Visual Studio 2005 installed on my PC and was thinking I could use one of the images for development on Pocket PC device to look at the file and extract the data I need, but cant seem to do this.
I have tried to update from ActiveSynce 3.8 to the latest available but with same problems.
Anyone have any ideas what my next step it?
This is really urgent as I told my customer this should be easy, that will teach me!!!!!!
