Re-installing Your Free & Paid Apps After Windows Mobile Update/Hard Reset

So you are new to Windows Mobile, loaded a ton of apps and games on to your mobile and now face a hard reset or you updated or downgraded your mobile that will wipe out everything. Or even better, you bought a new Windows mobile. The good news is that all the apps and games you’ve purchased won’t have to be re-purchased, as those licenses are linked to your Microsoft Account.

Method 1: You can backup your app listings to make re-installing paid and free apps.

  1. Use backup feature that is available in our Windows Mobile settings. If you go to Settings, scroll down a bit and you will find a Backup section.
  2. Here you can create a backup file for your app list and settings, backup your text messages and turn on/off the SkyDrive auto-upload feature for your photos.
  3. Everything from your theme color, Internet Explorer favorites and a list of all your apps/games will be backed up making restoring everything after a hard reset, update or transitioning to a new Windows Phone a lot easier.
  4. The one problem with the backup is that it won’t save your Start Screen configuration. You’ll still need to configure that by hand after you get all your apps and games re-installed.
