BerryGrab.com Lets You View and Read Backup IPD Files Online



BerryGrab.com is a cool site we haven’t covered yet. The site is designed to display the data stored on your BlackBerry in a readable and user-friendly way. This is done through an IPD file, which is created when you backup your BlackBerry using the Desktop Software. Once you have the IPD file, you can export the data to a .CSV format, allowing you to make use of the PIM data such as contacts, calendar, BBM, call logs, SMS and more. Another benefit to this service is that your backups are stored online, meaning you can retrieve them if you lose your harddrive for whatever reason.

Coming Soon: Laptop Backup Solution for BlackBerry from Clickfree


clickfree microsd

Clickfree and Storage Appliance are set to launch the Clickfree Traveler for BlackBerry; a micro-SD memory card with preinstalled backup software that lets you back up as much as 16 gigabytes of data. Due to the limitations of the micro-SD Card, the solution won’t be helpful for backing up video, but it will be ideal for documents and smaller files. The backup process will be much like how you backup your BlackBerry on your laptop: just plug in and run the software. The data is also encrypted and accessible via password.

The Clickfree Traveler for BlackBerry ships on April 5th. No word yet on price. The company is also going to launch a larger 32GB micro-SD Card, for those who need more backup space.
