Re: this is How to restore the "Back up & Restore" app

what do you mean :restore sd card?

if you formated the SD card or delete something from the SD card there's no way to retrieve it, its gone for good, if you haven't and you ran the backup & restore then updated your phone reinstall the backup and restore but can't restore your file, just re-install the backup & restore again and try again

Re: this is How to restore the "Back up & Restore" app

I can open the Back up and REstore application in the OI file manager, it is a Zip file only that opens though, it is a 2.68 MB, I can open it with Astro that i downloaded before, but when I click, it gives me the backup_and_restore_v010935.zip with different folders in it, each of which, once I click on it, says "file type arsc not found" or "file type not found". HELP!!!

did you unzipped the file before you transfered it? if you did, don't just leave as is

Re: this is How to restore the "Back up & Restore" app

I unzipped it but I copied the zipped file. Do you mean I have to copy each file separately on the SD card? Sorry for the silly question, my brain is frying, my hubby is furious...Thanks for your help, please stay on line...

Re: this is How to restore the "Back up & Restore" app

download the APK file but do NOT unzip it, just transfer it to your SD card as it is, or try another of the methods i suggested above, like download it on your PC then send it to yourself through Gmail

once you download the file right click on it, is it a .rar file or .apk file?

Ok, I thought I had to unzipped. I had copied the unzipped file before onto the SD card, it was a .apk file, will try to send it to my gmail account now

no, you don't unzip .apk files, thats the app itself, doing so... well you know what happen
