I have had to do 3 restores so far, 1 new phone, 1 Reload of OS and 1 Firmware update..
Why doen't these items restore:
Desktop: Wallpapers, Folders and Folder contents (surely this would be part of the settings)
Saved data in aps.
It takes ages to get the phone back to its origanal state...
Also it seems the the restore doesn't work after the above senarios unless you create a backup with the new installation first.

I use Sony PC Companion version 2.1 and have backed up everything prior to any changes I have made to my phone, and each time the same stuff comes back. But not the items I lised above.
I haven't tried just deleting the data and restoring it... it has always been a complete restore of the system.

use the backup & restore app instead, it works fine on the Xperia S

I asked the same question here http://talk.sonymobile.com/message/170112#170112 and still no answers.
The apps I tried also don't restore the home screens, ringtones etc.
