Restoring SD Card from ActiveSync Backup

I have a 1GB SD Card that was functioning fine. This morning the card showed corrupted and asked to reformat. I foolishly allowed the reformat thinking my files were backed up. I perform a continuos backup each time my PDA conncects to laptop. I also perform full backups. The last full backup was 10 days ago. After backing up No SD Card File! Can I restore my SD Card files?

Re: Restoring SD Card from ActiveSync Backup

If you didn't backup the sd card contents into the pc then no, but if you did then its a yes.

I myself take a full copy of the contents of my sd cards now and then into my desktop computer, and incase a problem happens I can restore the files.

You can try a file recovery program like file scavenger.
http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm TRY THE FREE DEMO FIRST don't buy the program unless it can recover your files.

I own the program myself and its great but try it first.

Format itself doesn't delete any files it only marks it as free space.

SOURCE: Restoring SD Card from ActiveSync Backup

I am fairly sure that you are out of luck. The Active Sync backup does not backup SD card data.

Dear,
try inserting a different micro sd card of 1gb in your mobile, if it gets work, then you could be sure that their is a fault in your that memory card which shows storage device not found.
it may got currupt.
or try formatting that memory card through a computer, then insert it..
it may will work, but if not then its time to buy a new memory card as that card is currupt.

Can't download music to mini sd for ATT 8525


There are 2 ways to do this.

The first is to get a microSD card reader, take the card out of the phone, put it into the card reader and plug that into your computer.
Then this will show up as a flash drive, and you will be able to drag-and-drop, or copy and paste.

The second is, when you have your phone connected to your computer, and ActiveSync is active, you can explore your phone and microSD card.

At the top of the ActiveSync window is the "Explore" button.
Click on it, and a new window should open up.
Click on "My Windows Mobile-Based Device", then "Storage Card"
You can drag-and-drop or copy and paste.

If you can't see the "Storage Card" folder, your phone may not recognize the microSD card.
The original Windows Mobile 5 (WM5), only recognized standard microSD cards up to 2GB.
You would have to upgrade the software/firmware to WM6 to recognize microSDHC cards of 4GB, 8GB and above.

It looks like you have Vista, I have XP, your results may vary.

Just bought 4GB SD card that hx4700 does not recognise - help pse


Your slot in the iPAQ is a SD slot, not a SDHC slot - therefore it will not read the card. Your PC card is probably a dual reader. The SD cards look the same but are different. Have a read of this...

Restoring Backup to New Axim


The backup utility included on your Dell Handheld will backup your data to a storage card. You can restore on your replacement handheld from that storage card. From your Host PC, you can go to Tools | Backup/Restore and do a backup to the Host PC, and you can then restore after syncing the replacement handheld for the first time.

Data erased from iPAQ hx4700


If an ipaq loses power , then all data in RAM is lost. It's important to keep it charged. It's also important to do regular backups..... so there are two backup options - one is thru Activesync which will backup to your PC and one is the IPAQ's own backup program which will backup to the IPAQ FILE STORE (area in ROM) or a SD card. I do the Activesync backup every time I sync and then the IPAQ backup about once a week or immediately before a system change. Activesync backup ------------------------ Here is a guide which best explains it http://www.cewindows.net/faqs/activesync/backup.htm this guide suggests doing a full backup, but it's fine to do an incremental backup each sync - this means that only changes will be added to your backup and makes the whole process much quicker. IPAQ Backup ----------------- So under Programs is a program called IPAQ Backup. The default location is IPAQ FILE STORE which is an area in ROM and is not lost thru a power failure nor hard reset. You may also choos to backup to a SD card - a full backup will need roughly 20MB. So in this backup procedure, if you click on 'Browse' you can choose a SD card. A restore can then be performed from the IPAQ FILE STORE or SD card (depending on which location you chose) and so if you are away from your PC, this will be no problem. A restore this way , rather than thru Activesync is also much quicker, so if you have a choice go this route.
