    Clean Backup

    Ok I would like to get a clean backup of all my apps in one folder. I have done a search and deleted all folders with my Pin # and I still can't get a clean backup. What do I need to delete to get a clean install and where would it be? thanks!

    I just did this over the weekend. I was a bb newbie when I realized I had to back up apps separately. I don't know how many I reinstalled till I figured it out. I had done the first backup and it has some old apps that I did not want to lose. I add a letter or number to the end of the Pin# folder, then used the apploader and it only added the apps that were not on my phone. Then I searched for the pin# file again, moved it and added another letter or number and then I deleted the prior folders. All of my apps were once again in one folder. Hope this helps. Someone else may know of a better way, but this worked for me.

    Make sure you also empty the recycle bin, once you delete all previous back ups.

    Then start fresh...

    ok I deleted all that was in the Temp folder and renamed my backup that was on a diff drive. That seemed to work because I now have a full backup of all my apps in one folder. Thanks for all your help!
