1. Introduction
It is necessary to have power supplied to the memory module (namely, Random Access
Memory, RAM) to maintain all data and settings stored in it. When the power of a Windows CE
based equipment fails, normally, all data and configuration settings, per explained above, will
be lost. Then, when the power is back on, the equipment will execute “cold-boot “to bring the
equipment back to default status.
To help Windows CE equipment (namely, Argox mobile computers) users sustaining important
application related data files and configuration settings, Backup_Restore Utility was
developed.
Backup_Restore Utility is an easy to use and simple software utility. It can, when needed,
backup and restore critical information like register key of this Windows CE equipment and
data files (only file types which can be duplicated) stored in this Windows CE equipment. Also,
version ID of Backup_Restore Utility will be displayed at the right bottom corner of the main

2. Application Environment
Argox mobile computers, i.e. PT-90/9230 series, PT-60/PA-60 series, can all be supported by
Backup_Restore Utility. Differentiated by hardware and language versions, restore can not
be processed if the hardware or language version is different.

executing restore and warm-boot, the system will retrieve data (i.e. “os.ini” and “scan.ini”)
compulsorily from specified file folders to configure the mobile computer accordingly.
On the other hand, if Backup_Restore Utility is used on new version mobile computers, the
configuration settings will be initiated normally.
