thanks. there it is just like you said it would be. i'm learning a little more each day
so when backing up i hit ' backup all user apps and system data' and when restoring i hit ' restore missing apps with data'?
thanks. i just sent the post as you were inviting the IM.
I don't normally backup system data, just all user apps. I'm not sure if restoring the system data would cause the rom to "glitch", which is the reason you want to wipe data in the first place.. So all I do is backup all user apps, then just restore user apps with data. That will restore all of your apps, plus any settings you have edited on those apps.
For example, if you're using HandCent SMS and you've customized the text, background, etc... TI will restore that, so you don't have to go and change the settings again.
