Re: backup location sony bridge for mac

Hi Timson,

 

I couldn't find it either now when I looked, I have asked the development crew about it and will get back to you when I know.

 

Best Regards,

Re: backup location sony bridge for mac

Hi Timson,

 

the backups should definitely be there so I'm not sure why you your folder's not there. Do you have any current backups of your phone in Bridge?

 

Best Regards,

 

David

Re: backup location sony bridge for mac

Can you tell me how you located the backup file? I still can't find it anywhere on my mac, even searching with the file name you provided..

Re: backup location sony bridge for mac

Hi Stewie,

 

try opening the terminal and enter 

 

cd ~/Library/"Application Support"/"Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac"/Backups

 

then enter: "open ."

without the quotation marks.

That should open the folder with the backups. Please let me know if that doesn't work for you.

 

Best Regards,

Back up

Hello David,

 

 I backed up my Sony Xperia U (ST25i), a few days ago, becuase I've sold it. And I have a Motorola Moto G, as a replacement. Is there any way I can get the Xperia's backup on to the Moto G? 

 

All the best,

-Sibtain

Re: Back up

Hi Slbtain7,

 

I don't know of a way, unfortunately. You can copy from an old phone to an Xperia device, but the other way around would depend on Motorola's software etc. You should tell them that you have a backup and ask if you can transfer it somehow.

 

I'm sorry I can't help you any further, I hope you get it to work.

 

Best Regards,

 

David

Re: backup location sony bridge for mac

The screen is broken on my old phone so I can't do xperia transfer. I really need to get a message from that phone though. Is there a way of seeing the messages on my computer?

Re: backup location sony bridge for mac

Dear David,

the screen of my Sony ZR C5502 has cracked and it unusable. What I would like to do is back up the data and restore it on my other ZR 5503 (notice slight difference in model). 

 

I have backed up my ZR 5502 and the problem is I can't find the location for the backup - and note - it isn't (like you've suggested a couple of times before in this thread) in:

 

library/Application Support/ Sony Ericsson.....

 

because the is no "Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac" folder in the Application Support folder. Checked a million times and I've also run it in script.

 

This is strange because I've had a similar problem before, where I did find the backup location for bridge for Mac and I'm pretty sure it earlier was in the location that you have mentioned. But that is no longer the case.

 

I've also checked if Bridge for Mac completes the backups, and it does. I can backup my ZR C5503 - Delete som content on my phone - restore the backup on my ZR C5503 and then the deleted content is restored on the phone. This means that Bridge for Mac backs up the phone correctly! 

 

Now the only question is: Where does it store the backups? I can't seem to find the location

 

Pls Help Slightly smiling Face 

 

PS: What i want to do is change the name of the backup folder from ZR C5502 to ZR C5503, then I should be able to restore my ZR C5502 backup on my ZR5503. I've done this before, just the other way around and it worked, but at that time I knew where the backups were stored.

Re: backup location sony bridge for mac

Hi Alkbyrne!

I'm the person who has David old job.

 

Sorry to hear about your problem.

 

I think this is the way you have tried but it´s there the backup should be.

The backups are stored in:
~/Library/Application Support/Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac/Backups
 
If you don't find it you can try opening the terminal and enter
cd ~/Library/"Application Support"/"Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac"/Backups
 
Make sure you have quotation marks around Application Support and Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac
then enter: "open ."
without the quotation marks.
That should open the folder with the backups. (see images below)

 backup2.png

 
 If you don't find them there I'm sorry to say something with the backup didn't work properly.

 

Best regards

 

Fredrik
