    I need a little help. I have a droid Bionic (my 3rd one in less than 4 months) and I installed astro file manager on my last phone and backed up all my apps, I now have the new phone and I need to transfer them over, but they are not showing up. How do I do this instead of having to go to the market and do it one at a time?
    The verizon operator told me to use this app and it was suuuuper simple etc and they would be there but they are not..... so HELP!?!

    Open astro, go to APPLICATION BACKUP, select BACKED UP APPS, open settings, and then INSTALL. Just check all the apps to install all of them.

    Hit the menu key for settings to appear. Did you backup the apps initially?

    Yep I backed them up initally, double checked to make sure they were there then did a factory reset of the old phone, got the new phone in today and downloaded astro file manager like he told me to do and they are not there anywhere. Sorry I am just very frustrated with this phone to the point of wanting to scream.

    When I go to astro - then application backup - backed up apps tab - then hit the menu key - the options i have are install, delete, sort by, and preferences. when you click preferences it shows nothing. I give up.

    Nope none. It's ok I probably did something wrong, I am just re-downloading all of them now. One at a time. I am just hoping I dont have to get another phone again. I refuse to this again!

    I had the same issue today. I found the folder with the backups on the phone storage, SD not SD-ext. I made a copy of the file and placed it in the same place on my new phone and they then showed up for me to reinstall. I see you wiped your phone so this wont work for you but will help out next time.

    You will find the astro app backups in the folder mnt/sdcard/backups/apps. I made a copy and saved it to my PC. I cannot find where you can designate where the app backups get saved. Its obvious it should be the external SD card.
