    Playbook 2.0 backup fails.

    I have tried three times now to do a full backup of my Playbook. Each time it gets part way through then fails with an error. I have tried to backup to my laptop HDD and to an external HDD. Fails with each. It leads me to believe that something on the PB is causing the failure. Is there a PB equivalent of chkdsk /f ? What else could be causing this?

    Have you updated to the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Software?

    Yes Joe. I have it. Just trying backing up the separate components. System and Media backed up OK. Just in the process of backing up App Data. We'll see how that goes.

    If that way does work then I guess if I wanted to restore a full backup it would work to restore those individual components one at a time?

    Yea, try backing up your app data separately from the others. Let me know how that goes.

    Well that's interesting, all the separate components backed up without a problem!

    Awesome, glad you got it to work. Could have been just a bug with the software.
