    Hi,

    I just rooted and updated my HTC Hero. Fairly painless, apart from the settings. I naively assumed that My Backup Pro would backup all my data, and restore. However, all email settings and social network ones were not backed up. I understand now why this is so as it's App data, and My backup Pro does not have the correct file permissions to copy these. But I wanted to know if there is another alternative to a restore after a wipe?

    In a way Contacts and the calendar are not needed to be backed up as they just get restored when you do a google sync. But I have many email addresses (work ones unfortunately) and it's a real pain entering all that data.

    Any tips?

    Cheers
    Ferg

    Any reason you don't import your work emails into google contacts, in their own group, and manage from there? That's what I do. You don't mention what you're using at work for email and how it's stored on your android...
