    I know you can save and backup things via ROM Manager and Clockwork Mod Recovery. I'm basically wondering what is saved to where on my SD card and under what file name.

    I have a folder on my SD card titled "clockworkmod".

    In this folder I have:

    .settings

    a folder called "download"

    and a zip file called recovery-update

    I also have a zip file called "update" on the SD card - which I think appeared after I updated to the Latest Recovery via Flash ClockworkMod Recovery option in ROM Manager.

    The above may not be correct. So I'm just wondering what the "update" file is at seems to contain exactly the same files as "recovery-update".

    Apologies for so many questions. I'm just trying to get familiar with where it saves everything.

    Rom manager put update there. It applies update.zip to boot into clockwork.

    When you manually go into clockwork, its the flashed version. Rom manager uses a different unflashed instance.

    Gotcha. Cheers mate.

    So in short, leave the pair of them there. :D

    Will any updates (eg. to the latest recovery of Flash ClockworkMod Recovery in the ROM Manager menu) overwrite the previous file? Or will they create a new file on the SD card? If it creates a new file, is the old one then ok to be deleted?
