    Hello all,

    I had to give my HTC Desire for a reparation, and in order to backup my android contacts I juste mounted my phone as a disk on my computer and I copied all the disk.

    When I've got back my phone, I just copied back all the content I had on my computer to my phone again.

    But it changes nothing, I didn't get back even my settings or my installed apps.


    Is there still any chance to get at least my contacts!?

    Thanks a lot.

    The contents of the sd card are for the most part user media files and configuration settings for apps. None of the user data resides on the sd card without the user specifically putting it there. If your contacts were gmail contacts associated with the account the phone is registered to, then when you register the repaired phone (I assume you got it back reset to factory conditions) then they should sync back tot he phone. You will, however not have any history of SMS messages or installed apps. You will need to reinstall your apps.
