    I have the 3rd party backup folder with all the appz backed up BUT the .alx file was over written and only holds info on 4 of my appz. Why this is i have no idea. Anyway i tried to recover in DM but again only the 4 appz come up. I really understand the .zip file instructions. it really seems like i need to rewrite the .alx file somehow. Ahh well i can always start looking for my stuff by loggin into the different sites i use.

    What I was trying to explain to you is when you have a recent back up and then trying to back up again, DM only looks for new/updated apps. Then when you copy the folders over, you overwrite old ones and you lose them. That's why I said, you need to .zip the back up that had 25 apps (previous one), delete the original folder, then back up again and DM will back all of your apps up. Is this confusing? It's hard to explain in writing.

    So, if you only have the 4 apps, unfortunately you will have to reinstall all of the others.

    yup i understand but i've backed up my apps then wiped my phone reloaded only to discover the problem so zipping up the folder and rebacking up will only give the 4 apps again. So yes i agree i'll reload everything thanks everyone for helping though.

    Once you load them all, you can delete the back up with the 4 apps, and just back all of them up so you have them just in case...

    No problem...the 3rd party app back up/restore process can be frustrating, as RIM has not simplified it yet :banghead: LOL
