    Who can solve this mystery?error restoring /data

    I have read lots of people having this very same problem but I haven't found a fix.I thought safestrap was the perfect took until now.
    I have stock rooted 902 on non-safe side
    I have eclipse 2.2 on safe side
    Toggling between the two had worked perfect for me a coupe times.
    Today I went into non-safe to use my stock stuff.
    Tonight, I tried to toggle back into safe mode but out said error restoring /data so I did a quick toggle and restarted but it just say there as a black screen. I went to backup & restore to look for a safe recovery but the only thing there is the original non-safe backup.
    Then, I went back to the non-safe side...and it took me to the Android and it had been factory reset!wtf
    So I restored the original non-safe backup which worked fine. I toggled back into safe mode which created a backup like always, then after once again being unable to boot into safe mode and getting the error, I went back into non-safe which I figured would be fine since it had just made a new backup but no! Factory reset.
    So..... I restored the original backup and here I am; confused and disappointed in this new tool that I had high hopes for.

    WHAT DO I DO????
    HELP ME!!!!!

    Ok I found the safe strap folder with the original and safe backup....they are both named data.ext3 .should they handed the same name?
    Then there's a different folder with the original backup....... I'm getting confused now why there are separate safe strap folders in different areas

    Because you chose internal and external locations to do a backup at one time or another.

    Wow!!! Exact same thing I am going through tonight. I saw there was an Eclipse v3.0 and since I was having so much luck toggling back and forth via safestrap, I thought I would try.
    Have you found a solution yet?
    Two factory resets tonight. lost root twice, got it back. I am going crazy....
    Somebody enlighten me???
