    RZ,

    While the short answer is yes, may we get an explanation as to what .android-secure is, and what the benefits are to backing it up/when we might want to in making a backup of a particular ROM?

    Thanks ahead of time, and RZR definately is my recovery of choice.

    Lol. Ok

    Android-secure lives on the sdcard. It contains files for certain apps as well as apps2d apps and some paid app stuff. The way I see it, its already on the SD so why back it up? That's why its not enabled by default (why make backups take any longer than they have to?) When moving from Rom to rom you should always wipe anyway so I really don't see why you should back it up. I just added it on request.

    LOL, thank you!

    I agree with you on not having it already included, (larger in addition to longer to do depending on its contents) ...

    I just figured you had a better idea than I what was stored there. :)

    I do know that if you delete the files out of there, things like Angry Birds lose their saved data, and other apps will need to start from scratch. I've done that and one by one added folders back in again to re-add data and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm back at the beginning of AB because of that.
    But on a positive side, I *was* able to install the Angry Birds St Patty's Day update after I moved it out.

    If it existed for d2g... if the d2(g) has the same yaffs2 filesystems I can probably easily make it.
