    How do I save my "desktop" and favorites

    I was having issue with Exchange Account on my Droid. I had 2 Exchange accounts after the 2.2 update. I deleted one and then the one that was left was in half way state. There were no settings (grey account acc name) and remove option did nothing.

    Anyway, I did a factory reset which isn't that hard but restoring my "desktop", icons and browser favorites is time consuming.

    So, for next time, what's the best way to restore after a factory reset. I wouldn't want the exchange mess to be restored, just the look and feel and settings like that.

    Thanks for help,

    There are a couple of ways going about this. Launcher Pro is one of many alternative desktop tools. You can backup your desktop settings with that app. I think you will have to put your widgets back into place but everything else will be as it was. There may be other apps that do similar things.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.
