Although i've never posted, i frequent this forum far too often. I've been considering rooting my droid and had finally decided to do so this evening. Before i could go ahead with it i wanted to backup everything with astro first. Whenever i attempt to backup my apps I get a message stating: "The backup directory '/sdcard/backups/apps' could not be created. Please change the directory in the Preferences" So I changed the directory in the preferences...several times in fact, and the error message just adjusts, of course, to tell me that whatever i renamed the directory to could not be created as well. I'm typically somewhat technically adept however this is my first smartphone and i really don't want to mess anything up. Suggestions for backing up my phone before I attempt to root and install 2.1?
