IRestore I-Restore is the most powerful registry, file, and database backup/restore utility available for Windows CE based PDA's such as Pocket PC 2002, Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PCs, and more. I-Restore requires the PDA to have a memory storage card such as CompactFlash, Secure Digital, miniSD, Memory Stick, or PC Card Hard Drive.

Worse yet what happens to your phone numbers and appointments and that report you were working on? With time you may be able to reload the programs, but your data files may be lost forever.

By using I-Restore, you can be back up and running in minutes without having to reconnect to your PC.
