Default How do i Copy and Paste efs folder?

Hi All,

I am failing misserably at copying and pasting the efs file as highly recommended. I have Titabium back up, Root Explorer and CWM installed. I have spent ages surfing but all suggestions are for people who know all the technicalities of the phone...I dont.

I have gone into root explorer, pressed and held the efs which gives me the 'COPY' option which i press. When i go into ''My files' and to 'external_sd' folder there is no 'PASTE' option...

Any Ideas are welcomed..

D

Paste within root explorer and not myfiles.
You do know that if you stuff up your efs folder, you can't just copy and paste this backup back in don't you?

I wasn't aware of that Hawker. I was reading part of the rooting / flashing thread and a guy stated it was very important to copy the efs folder to an external sd card and pc. It stated to simply copy and paste it so you have it as a backup.
