    Here's the deal, I really like the fact that Google auto-backups all my settings (wireless and what have you), and apps... but there are some apps that I would like removed from that list so they don't restore when I wipe all the data. Is there anywhere to manage that list, or any way to remove the apps in a more permanent way.

    Anyone who understands this a bit better, please help! It's super frustrating.

    Thanks,
    James

    Uncheck the backup settings box under "privacy."

    Uninstall the app.

    Recheck it.

    Normally the uncheck/recheck isn't necessary, but if you find that for some reason google is still storing something, that should clear it out.
