    BBSAK should have created a 'backup' folder on your PC in the BBSAK folder, please search for it and check what is in there, there should be at least a backup.alx a backup.jad and all your 3rd party *.cod files in there.

    As a test, just open the file backup.jad with a text editor, to see if you have corrupted files here as well, it should state something like this:

    MIDlet-Name-1: BBSAK Backup
    MIDlet-Version-1: v1.0
    MIDlet-Vendor-1: RIMGeeks.com

    RIM-COD-URL-1: UberTwitter.cod
    RIM-COD-Size-1: 448696

    With the cod size, you could check if the value displayed here is the same as you would find on 'file properties' of the relevant cod file...this would give a first hint whether your backup is still ok, or was messed during your PC crash

    All of our old backup files, both third party and dm files are corrupt. Can't open any of them but have backed up both since and have no issues, at least with my wife's phone (she is still running stock os). I have had issues with my 3rd party restore. I can load hers on mine no problem but can only get mine to work 1 out of 4 tries so far. I keep trying this because the new leak is so much better than current stock but she won't let me change hers until I get this down pat. (Lol, smart gal!) Any ideas why I am having issues with mine and not hers? I am leaning towards operator error!

    Just to understand the problem, did I get it correct:
    Her device, old OS, new 3rd party backup ok,
    your device, new OS, new 3rd party backup not ok?

    I had the same problem with the lastest BBSAK. I never had this problem with the earlier versions. My backup file was fine, it just didn't load. I finally restored with dm. This is the only post I have seen with this bug as well. I am running stock 428 on S2.

    I just got a new notebook, it runs Windows 7, my other lappy is vista, I wonder if that is the problem? I will unistall BBSAK and get a fresh download and try again to see what happens. I let you know my results.

    yup you got it. she is running stock(4.7.1.57) and everything is fine. i am running 5.0.0.419 and cant restore bbsak 3rd party backup. i have not uninstalled than re-install the bbsak since comp issue. i have uninstalled then re-installed the dm though. like i said previously i leaning towards something i'm doing but cant put a finger on it. i rename previous backups like it request. the reason i haven't uninstalled then re-installed is because it works with my wifes backups. something to do with the new os possibly? i have gotten mystuff back between my wifes backup and just going and getting the rest but now i'm hoping that this will help someone else who might run across this or me in the future.

    This is getting too complex for me

    The advanced backup/restore function of DM for your new OS device is not working as well?

    You have a media card in your berry? You could try to copy the BBSAK backup files there (mass storage mode), then to go there with your internal BB file manager and try to install from within the card...

    really!?! thats a great idea! i shall try that. my dm works fine now that i re-installed it. but i did that after finding out that my dm backup files were not working. i had this bbsak on my computer before it had issues, is it possible that it might be something to do with that? i'm gonna try to re-installing bbsak before trying my sd card route. purely a curiousity thing now.

    ok. now i am thoroughly confused. i reinstalled bbsak, backuped files, can see that they have info in them, go to restore them and nothing, says phone may flash during backup then goes immediately to backup complete. just that quick. so then i tried downloading directly to sd card and my computer sees my phone(removable disk j on my computer, can unhook and disc j disappears, rehook it up and disc j reappears) but then keeps telling me to to insert disc in drive. sooooooooo. i'm not sure where to go from here. perhaps reformatting computer and starting from scratch because i may have some partially corrupt files. or ???

    hold it for a second :-)

    make sure, that in options a) mass storage mode is enabled
    and b) that it is set to automatically enable, when connected

    ... about the BBSAK backup, is the backup folder named 'backup' on your PC?

    mass is enabled, and it is set to automatically enable. and yes backup up folder is named "backup". when i go to backup it has me rename previous backup files, which i do. however i rename them like backup 1, backup 2etc.. could that cause the issue with it? also i erased all of them when i re-installed bbsak just to make sure i had a fresh start.

    ok, then let's try the disk version - have you already copied it to your card? If so, use the BB internal file manager and try to open the backup.jad with it!

    tried downloading directly to sd card and my computer sees my phone(removable disk j on my computer, can unhook and disc j disappears, rehook it up and disc j reappears) but then keeps telling me to insert disc in drive. So I am going to try on another computer tomorrow and see what happens.
