Restore of an Xperia Z2, system-updated per april 2017, does not function on a validated backup per july 2016. Nothing of importance restored; no apps, e-mail or eventuellt SMS messages are restored. So, what use is an Xperia backup using Sony PC Companion (2016) or the latter Xperia Companion If restore fails in all 3/4 of a year later?
Hi @Scallag, sorry for the late reply to your post!
The backup that you are trying to restore, which program is this backup created in, is it created by Xperia Companion or PC Companion?
Which version(s) of Xperia Companion was the backup created in and which version are using when trying to restore the backup to your device? Did you receive any error messages while restoring the backup?
Applications won't be restored to your phone, it's only application data that gets backed up by Xperia Companion. So you will need to download and install the applications that you had in your phone previously and then the personal application data can be restored.
I would also appreciate if you could provide me with some logs from the Xperia Companion so I can forward them!
Press ‘Settings’ in top right corner of Xperia Companion main screen
Select ‘Save log files to the desktop’
The logs are saved as a zip on the desktop, normally called companion_log_[date].zip
Upload the logs to Google drive or a similar service and send me a private message with the link!
Once again, sorry for the late reply and for the troubles with restoring your backup and thanks in advance for the logs!
