Backup and recovery is vital to ensure you do not lose data in the event of data corruption or media failure. It is best to back up your Windows CE database to a physically separate location to safeguard against data loss because of theft or loss of the Windows CE device, or media failure on the Windows CE device.
Most backup and recovery utilities are available on Windows CE. However, these utilities are not useful since you cannot use the utilities on Windows CE to store backups in a physically separate location. Instead, data can be backed up by copying the entire database file to a computer. You can also use synchronization to maintain an up-to-date copy of your Windows CE database on a computer.
