I did the stupidest thing with my Droid 2 the other day and lost my apps and one that contained all my appointments, notes, and passwords.
I had it connected to the PC trying to get ringtones in the Android file which I did after 3 hours. Then I noticed they were on there 3 times so I went into Astro to try and clean the files up. Not knowing what the heck I'm doing, I cleared the data cache on a file called Contacts Storage which turned my phones service off.
Took it to Verizon and some lady got it working again. She said all my apps and data will come back since they are backed up by gmail-WRONG!
Some paid apps, like Docs to Go are gone as well as all the notepad notes, appointments, and passwords in the password safe.
I can't even find the login info for my own website??
I know, my fault for putting it into a phone and not on paper. But I see something in the phones settings that's checked 'back up to SD card'
How do I go about getting all this stuff back?
I tried plugging it into the computer and used USB mode but it wont open anything on the phone. Is there some sort of desktop manager like Blackberry had that allowed me to backup my phone and save it on a flash drive?
I can't root the phone because I don't know what I'm doing and can't afford to void the warranty. It works fine for me the way it came out of the box but I have to have a way to save everything without having to write it on paper and file it. Does that make sense?
So many people have been very helpful here, I'm praying there is a way to get my data back. I got the contacts back but they're the last thing I cared about recovering. Its all the things in Color Note and Kuffs Password safe I really need.
I even have Dropbox but that only took things back to November, thought it synced on it's own but I guess not.
Any help would be AWESOME! !! Thanks so much!!
