    Before I flashed I made a backup on my stock .905 of all of my user apps + data and saved these backups to my EXTERNAL SDCARD. After I flashed I downloaded TB on the new ROM and went to restore all my user apps from .905 only to find that about half of my apps were not available to restore.

    What's going on here? Did I do something wrong, or possibly misunderstand something?

    My tibu folder its on my internal. I'm pretty sure that's where tibu stores them. Try looking there..

    I've had TiBu do this to me a few times. I'm pretty sure that by default it will look for backups on sdcard not SD-EXT. Go into preferences>Backup folder location> Detect. That will scan both internal and external drives looking for backups. when it finds the backups just select that folder, may need to reload application, and you should be good to go.

    hope this helps, i know it freaked me out the first time i couldn't find my backups.

    I Rebooted to my Unsafe system, did another full backup to my /mnt/sdcard, rebooted to my Safe system and tryed to restore. Still no love.

    BUT, I'm looking at this as a good thing. I can start clean again! :biggrin: I've re-installed all my important apps and am going to keep it at that. It's nice to start fresh!

    Click menu goto preferences scroll down to tb back up folder. Click it then detect whole device. It will find it may require reboot after though. If you move it to ext sd if you have to re flash phone with rsd that data will still be there.

    I always save my tibu backups to sd-ext, so no matter what I do to my phone, I know I will not lose my backups. And I must be one of the lucky few who almost never has a problem restoring apps+data when switching between roms.

    Still no love. Tried all of the above.

    I began to doubt my understanding of TiBu, but the app is not that complicated. All I've been doing is a batch backup of user apps + system data using the default GZIP compression.

    Should I be using a different compression like LZO?
