Auto Backup Frequency IT policy rule


This rule specifies how often (in days) automatic backups occur. The permitted range is 1 through 99 days.

Default value

The default value is 7 days.


Change this value to a minimum of 2 days so that backups of BlackBerry® device data occur more frequently, to a maximum of 99 days.

If a user's computer memory is limited, save backup files to a network drive.

  • BlackBerry® Desktop Software version 3.5 or BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 3.5 for Microsoft® Exchange, BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 for IBM® Lotus® Domino®, or BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 for Novell® GroupWise®
