    My experience has been that when you go to back up using BBSAK that it will take you to the folder where the apps are to be stored, all you have to do is right click on the folder scroll down to where it says rename, rename the folder exit out and hit back up 3rd party apps. let me know if this works for you.

    Hi Ricky,
    BBsak will only keep one file named "Backup" .If you already have a file in the program you have to rename it (backup2) or delete it before you can make another 3rd party backup.
    Go to C>Program Files>BBsak>Backup and either delete or rename.

    I usually keep one old backup then make a new one just incase.
    Hope this helps
    Mike

    I always thougth that was how you know it's done. It stopped telling me when it was done with 1.4.

    I have the same thing - it never looks like it completes, it never tells you it completes, but actually it does. I had better luck with 1.3 than I have with 1.4 or 1.5. The newer versions haven't failed me - but they always leave me wondering, and that's unsettling.

    It should tell you that backup is complete. I have been using v1.5 with no issues.
    v1.6 will be out shortly and might solve your problem. I have been testing it and the third party backup works fine.
    Make sure you delete the previous backup file before you do a new one.

    Make sure you test your backup afterwards. I used BBSAK and tested it and it came up with the line about it not being suitable for your device.
