Backup and restore Firefox and Thunderbird with Ease

As great as it is to use Mozilla Firefox for browsing the Internet, and Thunderbird for sending and receiving emails, backing them up is quite hard for most of us. I’m talking about all those things you care about: bookmarks, mail, contacts, history, extensions, passwords and so on.

No matter which scenario are you having in mind – you reinstall your OS, your profile file gets corrupted, you move to a newer computer – you’ll want backup and than restore all the those thing you care about related to Firefox and Thunderbird. One of the best tools you could use to automatically back up Firefox and Thunderbird as well as Sunbird, Flock, Postbox (Express), SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite, Spicebird, Songbird, Netscape and Wyzo is Mozbackup.

Mozbackup is a light tool which makes the process of backing up all those programs a stress-free experience. Without further introduction, lets start backing up Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird. Before launching MozBackup, make sure both programs are not running in the background. Now launch the application. Choose “Backup a profile”, select Mozilla Firefox from the list and click Next to continue. In the next step, we’ll have to choose a profile from the list and the backup location. If there is only one profile associated, click default. After this, MozBackup will offer you the option to password-protect your backup file, why not choose ‘yes’ – just in case. In the third step, choose which elements you want to back up and click Next to begin the process.

The same procedure goes for Thunderbird or any other supported applications. In case you want to restore your Firefox profile or your Thunderbid emails using a backup, launch MozBackup, choose “Restore a profile” and click Next. In the next step, select the profile you want to restore. An important thing to remember is that the profile you select will be overwritten by the contents of the profile that is backed up in the backup file. If you do not want to overwrite any of the profiles listed in the MozBackup screen, you should create a new profile by clicking on the “New Profile” button. After that, select the backup file that contains your backed-up profile. When done, click next to begin the restoration process.

Manage all the contents of your mobile devices and mobile phones with Mobile Master

My smartphone is my life. I live in my phone. If I were to lose it, I don’t know that I’d know which end of my life is up. I rely on my phone to keep track of all of my PIM (Personal information manager) data, which is what Mobile Master helps you do. It’s a PIM data management application for your phone.

Years ago – back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s – the only way to get data from your PIM management system, say Outlook or Lotus Notes, to your organizer was to use some kind of synching software like ActiveSync or Palm Desktop, depending on the type of PDA you had. This became even more important once PDA’s turned into smartphones (or what we at that time called a converged device).

While many people are using smartphones that today either use BIS/BES (Blackberry Information Server or Blackberry Enterprise Server) or Exchange ActiveSync (Google and Gmail, as well as Apple’s iPhone both license Exchange ActiveSync to make Push work for their operating systems), not everyone uses a smartphone.  This is where applications like Mobile Master come in. It’s an application for mobile phone management and SMS communication that can be used to exchange data between mobile phone and PC, via cable, infrared, or Bluetooth.  The system automatically detects the mobile phone and assigns it its own profile, making it possible for you to manage several phones on the same PC, with the same data, without creating chaos with that data. A programmatic assistant helps you configure and manage all the settings. Even users with little to no prior mobile device knowledge can, download their phone’s address book, calendar, email and tasks to and from their phone and PC with just a few mouse clicks.

Mobile Master supports most phones by Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Motorola, Samsung or BenQ Siemens; and supports email clients and contact programs like Outlook, Lotus Notes, Palm Desktop, Thunderbird, Tobit David, Eudora, The Bat! and Outlook Express. Mobile Master also supports Novell GroupWise. To check if your phone is supported, take a look here: here.

I guess you backup your computer data, or at least know that you should. But what about your Android phone? If we think about the amount of important data which is stored on it, we’ll realize that needs backup too. I’m not necessarily thinking about contacts and calendar, but there are also photos, music, videos and other stuff we keep stored on the smart-phone.

All those things needs to be backed up, just in case something bad happens to the phone or when doing a factory reset or installing a custom ROM. As an alternative way to synchronize and backup data of your phone for users who don’t want to use the native PC Suite application that came with the phone, there is Wondershare MobileGo.
