The problem is that every modified config is not on the SD, but in the memory of the phone.
The other problem is that the backup of PC Companion indicate that it's a FULL backup and that you can have everything back with a restore, but that's not the case and that's the main problem. I hope they will find why the backup is buggy (read : unusable).
I don't care about my music or pics, they are in Media Go, but my GPS maps, apps data, bookmarks, synchronized accounts, contacts, sms, apps aren't.

Ok it's worse than I expected...
I reinstalled all my apps. I then tried to restore my backup and I had this error : app is already installed.
So the restore is really buggy. I don't know where the apps and data were, but they weren't displayed.
Someone from Sony can chime in please?

yes, any backup app that you can find, it will be the same, you MUST re-download the apps, for obvious reasons Google won't allow you to keep the APKs files on your phone. that's how apps work on android, ios, etc you have to redownload them all

you have to be a bit more specific, which backup app are you referring to ?
try "Backup & Restore" and this

It's selected by default.
But the restored apps didn't have their data, I had to redo the configuration for each app.
I installed MyBackup Pro, I will give it a try (30 days trial) and test a restore (will give a feedback :smileywink
