    Curious as to what everyone is using. I have astro file manager right now which is great for backing up apps, but I've been looking at My Back up pro. It's $5 but it looks like it backs up everything to the sd card and to their server, anyone try it?

    I have Astro and Titanium Backup on my Droid.
    Not sure how to actually restore using them though. Lots of options, not too much documentation. :)

    Titanium Backup is the best, especially if youre constantly flashing your phone

    TITANIUM BACKUP PRO DONATE $3.99 and well worth it if you Flash several roms a day like some of us. even just flashing a rom when new updates come out this will back up all your apps, app data, system data. unlike astro = for NON-Rooted DROIDs

    TBP = BEST FOR ROOTED DROIDS being able to install all your apps and data after a new ROM flash with the click of a button = MAJOR WIN!

    can you use titanium for non rooted droids?
    would it backup all your data even widget settings and screen location placements etc...

    So if you use that paid program for a backup, it does apps, contacts, messages, widgets etc with one click? If so, I will upgrade to the paid now and try out a 2.1 rom.

    Thanks Jason. I have been hesitant to upgrade after having to restore everything manually numerous times before.

    To answer several posts before this one.....

    Titaniumbackup is specifically for root users.
