Backup Your Treo Over the Internet
Blue Nomad is now offering a public beta test of a new wireless backup solution for the Treo 650 and 600. BackupBuddy.Net works in the background to backup your smartphone data to a server on the Internet.
BackupBuddy.Net allows Treo users to wireless backup their smartphone over the Internet. It is extremely secure as all user data is encrypted end-to-end (with AES encryption) and stored in an encrypted form. It is also fast as data is highly compressed as it is being sent over the air. Device backups (and restores) happen quickly. Interested treo users can download the beta from backupbuddy.net.
A trickle backup feature allows BackupBuddy.Net to transparently and continuously backup a user's files when they are not actively using their Treo, and does not interfere with the day-to-day use of the device.
The initial release of BackupBuddy.Net backs up only the PIM files: Contacts, Calendar, Tasks, and Memos. A subsequent release (Professional Edition) will add backup of the entire device. BackupBuddy.Net will be a subscription service - pricing has yet to be determined.
The service is currently in beta, and although it has been privately tested for several months with a closed group of beta testers, data loss is always a possibility. As such, Blue Nomad recommends that testers have alternative backup software available, such as BackupBuddyVFS and/or BackupBuddy for Windows and Mac OS X.
