The following procedure describes how to cancel a scheduled device wipe for a managed Windows Mobile device.

MDM tries to cancel a wipe request by removing the request from the database before it is sent to the managed device. By default, you can cancel a wipe request with a status of Pendingor Retrying.

You can use MDM Shell cmdlets and PowerShell scripts to automate Windows Mobile device management tasks. For more information on canceling a pending wipe request with an MDM Shell cmdlet, see Remove-WipeRequest.

  2. Select Recent Wipes. A list of managed devices appears in the details pane.

  4. Right-click the name of the managed device and then select Cancel Wipe.

  5. In the confirmation dialog box, choose Yesto confirm that you want to cancel the scheduled device wipe.
