Sprite backup phone vs PC and Duplications

I fumbled somewhere on the phone and found Sprite backup. I then backed up the phone to the storage card! Great! I realized I do not need a pc to be able to back up to a phone. But now I cant find the program! I checked under programs list and settings.

Any how, I later clicked on the Clear Storage and inputed 1234 and completely restored the phone (by mistake, I was expecting a warning or confirmation pop-up before the phone actually restarted and cleared everything). Luckily I had just made a backup to the storage card and was able to restore the phone to 10 minutes ago! Awesome!!

So now, two questions.

1- Where is the Sprite Backup program? I found it in programs folder while using the file explorer but not when going to start > programs. Why doesnt it show up under start > programs

ALso, if I am able to backup to the storage card, why do I need the Sprite installed on my PC? As a backup or ease of use?

2- I have duplicate icons in start > programs

Which are:

- Bluetooth explorer (1)

- Calculator (1)

- Google Maps (1)

Why are there duplicates? And how to get rid of them?

Open file Explorer, browse to the Sprite backup.exe, tap n hold>Copy

browse to Start Menu, tap n hold>Paste Shortcut

Duplicate shortcuts can simply be deleted

First time I've heard of Hard-resetting by mistake ;)

Also, the icons in the programs menu dont seem like shortcuts because they lack the little arrow signalling shortcut.

Any how, how to delete? There is no option to delete and Fn + Del (<-) doesnt delete it.

You don't get the shortcut overlay in WM, but they are shortcuts, if you look at the files you will see they have a .lnk extention

Fn + Del works for me

or you can hold your stylus on the file until you see a menu pop up, and select 'delete'

Does each backup require a password input (can be different from the other?).

I was not able to delete by going to start > programs because holding down with the stylus brings no menu nor does fn +del work.

I used explorer to browse around in Windows folder until I found the program folder (not menu) and then manually deleted the duplicates.
