    Question New Droid X2 user- Need help transfering SMS and other files from my original Droid 1

    Hello all,

    My name is George and I'm new here.

    My wife and I have had the original droid through Verizon Wireless for about a year now and were given the chance to upgrade one of our phones (which was good because hers fell in water just a week ago and isn't working). We can upgrade our other phone in Jan, just 6 months from now.

    We decided to go with the Motorola Droid X2. My eyes are getting worse, so the bigger screen is nice; not to mention the dual core 1 GB processor. I do however have a technical question/problem.

    In my original Droid, I used the app call SMS Backup & Restore, because I need to save all my text information for court and other personal purposes. I assume when I did the Backups, they were backed up to my sd card, because when I mounted the droid to my PC I saw the folder SMS BackupRestore and in it were .xml files with the different backup dates as part of the file name.

    I really don't want to throw my original 16gb sd card in the new phone. I wanted to reformat it, THEN put it in my Droid X2 and kind of reinstall the apps again and transfer the data into the phone via my PC. (Funny how the new upgraded phone only came with an 8gb sd card). This is where I am having difficulty:

    I installed the same app (SMS Backup & Restore) to my Droid X2, thinking I can run the app and use the restore portion, thinking it would give instructions but instead it just came up with a screen that said
    "Could not find any backup files in the /mnt/sdcard/SMSBackupRestore/ folder".
    I have no clue on how to get my backup files into my new DroidX2. I even tried to change the backup file name in the app on the new phone and manually put a folder with the same name into the phone with the sms .xml files in it.
    Basically I also need to know how I keep all my bookmarks that I also had in my Browser and all the downloaded documents (.doc and .pdf's).
    I'm sure it's a simple fix, but unknown to me

    I would appreciate any help in this matter so I can get my phone up and running. I don't want to format anything until I see these files in my new phone. Thank you for listening

    ~ George
