    yes. it just backs it up to a file on your host pc instead of the sd card.

    Unlike Palm, the PPC phones do not automatically back up and restore with activesync. You'll have to manually restore your back up. The only items that synch are listed in activesync options: notes, files, email, calendar, contacts, etc. Backups are not restored unless you do it manually.

    Yea I used Sprite the other night. Created a self executable backup on my SD card. Hard Reset, set clock. Then started the exe and within 5 minutes everything was back where it was. I did get some errors that things were not able to be overwritten though, but they looked like windows system files.

    /edit Oh yea, delete your partnership before syncing again.
