PreCentral: Check last profile backup date

1 post in this topic

Backup appEnsuring that your phone or TouchPad's data is backed up to the webOS servers is important to ensure that you will be able to recover in case you lose your device, it gets damaged, or you just need to swap devices. Backing up your profile data is a pretty easy task, although be aware that it does not back up all your application data and many system settings, but you can use the Save/Restore homebrew app to fill the majority of that gap. You should always be aware of the last time that your device performed its automated backup because sometimes things can go wrong and the backup does not occur. This can happen because of backup server issues or because something on your device became corrupt. Either way, the sooner you identify the problem, the better the chance that you will be able to recover with only minimal--if any--data loss.

To check when your last backup occurred, open up the Backup App (Backup App) and the "Last backup" date should appear on the top-left. Note that it may take a few seconds before it appears. If the date is not within the last 24 hours, the first thing you should do is tap the "Back up now" button on the bottom of the screen to initiate a manual backup.  If you run into additional errors or notice that your backup is not occurring on a regular basis, check out our Backing up your Palm Profile data tip with some additional steps and support options to fixing this issue.
