    I have been using ClockworkMod Recovery v5.0.20.0 to backup my HTC Incredible as well as Titanium Backup, and it works great.

    I just noticed that after ClockworkMod finishes its backup I have been getting an Error which doesn't appear to be causing any harm, but I would like to figure out why I'm getting this error.

    Error:
    No sd-ext found. Skipping backup of sd-ext.

    I know I'm not backing up the data of my SD card, but I am backing up "to" my 16gb SDcard

    One trick for extending storage on phones with limited memory is to add an ext format partition (a Linux format) to the sd card and move apks there, with a soft link so that it looks to the phone as if they are still in internal storage. If you do this, CWM will back up the contents of the ext partition as part of the nandroid. If not, you get this message.

    So if you've not done this you can ignore the warning :)

    I spent 2 years flashing roms and making backups on this phone and got that message every time. No worries.
