The Backup Utility is an application that will allow you to backup and restore, Phone Data, Browser Data, and Applications. This application was developed as a supplement to the Palm Pre Backup utility that comes stock wtih all Palm Pres. It has the added benefit of providing you with control over what is backed up and how often. Additionally it provides you with control over your restoration process. It is not intended to be used to backup and restore across different versions of webOS. [Palm's Operating System] It is not a gaurd against Palm's upgrade process. It is a contingency plan for the Palm Backup. Nevertheless some test have revealed that you can backup from an older webOS version to a newer version; however, if you decide to do so, then do so at your own risk.
THIS APPLICATION MAY DESTROY DATA ON YOUR PHONE. DO NOT USE IT UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO RISK LOSING ALL DATA ON YOUR PHONE, AND POSSIBLY THE DATA IN YOUR PALM PROFILE TOO.
This is the very first public alpha release of a backup utility for webOS.
Please test it on the emulator only, and report your experiences on the PreCentral thread.
