Despite all my efforts when I try to take a back up of all my favourites etc, I lose everthing. Does anybody know what am I doing wrong? I have not received a user guide to follow.

Connect your ppc and pc with activesync and copy \DestinatorApps\Destinator\UserData\Favorites from the ppc to your pc.

To restore your favorites just copy the files back on the n35.

The user manual is available online at http://csd.acer.com.tw/acer/URMUL1.NSF/0/b58a9da7d9369dfd4825700c0009f736/$FILE/Acer%20n35%20EN%20UG.pdf or look under 'user guides' at http://global.acer.com/support/download.htm.

Chapter 6 of the pdf shows how to backup your settings using the 'backup/restore' utility. Use option 'Backup all' and backup to 'SD-MMC Card' to store all your custom settings including camera files and your favorites (sic) as a single file of around 7MB. The 'about' info credits Lite-on as the backup utility author, it appears to be something Acer add to the standard Windows Mobile 2003 build.

Backup takes a few minutes. Restore is faster, less than 30 seconds. You can restore in the car or anywhere without access to a PC. Next time the battery runs down and it does a hard reset (and it will) you can restore all your settings with minimal trouble.

As 'the Rock' has suggested, it's also worth backing up your files to a PC using Activesync for longer term storage. The last of these models are being sold off very cheaply. If you want replace a lost or broken one you will save a lot of time with a PC backup.
