    This sounds simple enough, yet even here, you can't find a simple answer! LOL

    Is there an application or desktop software, that will backup just about everything (data & apps) to a PC? I would like to put it all on a micro Sd card instead of the hard drive.

    thxZ

    In the Coby Generation 3 section we use ADB to make backups of the firmware. You should be able to use it to back up the data directory. It likely can be used to do a nandroid backup as well.

    The only drawback is that it will pull the files to the hard drive. So from there, you'll have to copy the files to the card.

    Thanks, but I have no way to use any ADB commands- I need to use some kind of software to make backups,

    If you're rooted, install Terminal Emulator and execute the commands through it.

    Sorry, my device is not rooted. I'll keep it 'stock.' this time.
