    Cant find my .alx backup folder

    Ok so I am at a loss here with freaking windows 7. How do you search for system folders and files so I can find my backup from DM? And dont mention BBSAK becuase twice now I have lost all my apps because that program failed

    So lets push this further, BBSAK will only create a .alx file no .cod so i can not restore the apps with out the .cod, I cant backup my apps, I really dont want to hae to dump my cods for the entire OS. If I search for the backup by doing it through DM I can not get windows 7 to find my backup folder. Does anyone know the file path that DM saves the backup temporarly when you are doing a device switch?

    It saves it in your Documents. I've got Windows 7 also.

    I could have swore that, that is where everything from my backup saved (not just the .ipd). Oh well - worth a shot to try and help out :P

    Yep. And that's where you'll find the folder named with your PIN number that DM created.

    I keep a copy of this free little gem handy: Ultra File Search - File Search Utility

    Works great for when you've got to do a deep search for something and don't want to rely on any sort of indexed search.
