    When you start DM, there is the 'save and restore'
    go to 'advanced options' to the right
    then open file (left) and choose your backup...and plz report back, what you see there, should start with address book - all, address book- last used ... and so on

    are all these items filled with numbers and bytes, are any errors displayed?

    no luck. can locate the files and still does the error message. i fear that somehow all of our old backup files got corrupted when i had my computer issue. thanks for the help.

    Dam* I hate giving up on tech problems - I know it is personal, but would you mind mailing me one of your backup files *.ipd - just to check, if I could open it

    email is breiti_at_blackberryos.com

    replace _at_ with @

    If you wouldn't mind, just an offer, no must of course

    i sent ya 2 files. i also revisited the advanced options just to see if different day = different results and it didnt. i am convinced that they are lost due to comp issues. but any help or input would be greatly appreciated!

    Too sad, that the files were so corrupt, that you could not send them, reminds me to save at least one good backup on another disk...just in case.

    I guess this would be a good time for me to throw out my 2cents. Something I do to make sure I will always have at least the important things is, I make a backup on my PC of only the things I have to have.. Like contacts, calendar, and a few other things. I use the advanced backup. Then I make a copy and save it to the SD card in my phone. Although you can not load it right from there you will always have it no matter where you are and all you will need is a usb cable and DM on a PC and you can restore the important info. This is crucial as i had a laptop stolen once and my berry went batty so the only way I had a back up was DM on a co-workers Laptop and viola it was back when I was done. Just again thats my .02
