    I just downloaded the new update for my HTC desire.
    When starting the phone after that, it asked me if I want to restore my settings and I mistakenly clicked no.

    Now all my settings are gone :mad: and I dunno how to restore from SD again. I searched the web a lot, but did not find anything helpful really.

    How can I restore the backup which was automatically taken to SD before I installed this update?

    Bumping this old thread since there was no answer and I'm having the same problem. However I don't remember being asked if I want to restore my settings.. maybe I just missed it...
    I still have the backup I made on my PC so I can copy the files to the SD card again if necessary... anyone knows how to restore it? I can perform a factory reset if that would help.
    edit: maybe I didn't get the restore option because my phone was rooted? (I unrooted it now and installed froyo)

    Also bumping this one to the top as there was never an answer.

    I notice my SMS folder contains some hidden files (4KB) in SD Card/backups/sem/SMS/ - after Froyo update and Mybackup Pro not restoring my SMS properly, my last chance is restoring from this folder.

    and @IO3: I doubt the rooting thing makes a difference, I am unrooted with Froyo and can't get any option to restore the backups made on the phone. :-/

    Any help much appreciated.
