Back up content

Here's how to back up content on your BlackBerry Z10.

Use BlackBerry Link to back up and restore your device data, or to restore an unresponsive device. You can back up and restore most of the data on your BlackBerry device, including settings, phone history, fonts, saved searches, BlackBerry Messenger settings, browser bookmarks, messages, organiser data, and media files. By default, BlackBerry Link backs up all of the data on your device, but you can manually backup the data on your BlackBerry device at any time.

You should regularly create and save a backup file on your computer, especially before you update any software. Maintaining an up-to-date backup file on your computer might allow you to recover device data if your device is lost, stolen, or corrupted by an unforeseen issue.
