if i rename a nandroid backup folder will it still recognize it in recovery mode?
Depends upon the rename - I had one renamed to something else and it would not recognize the backup....
See http://androidforums.com/all-things...-bugless-beast-v0-3-2-21-10-a.html#post369714 - I never did play with it to see what was causing it, it could have been the , the extra ., the (), or something else...
Perhaps even the length of the name of the folder....
If you want to rename it, my advice is to rename it by adding something in (), something like (Old ROM backup of phone REMOVE ME) to the beginning of hte name, so you'll know you need to remove it before attempting to use it as a backup / restore.
I have renamed EVERY one of my nandroid backups without a single problem. Just don't change any file names inside the backup folder.
there is a limitation to*what* you can name them....
I haven't had any problems renaming the files. I have the first one I made named "Back to bare root" and I've used it a few times with no problems.
I also name all other backups with the ROM and release i.e. "BugBst 7.6" no problems there either.
Im pretty sure you cannot have spaces in the name of the nandroid. I tried to restore a backup once that had spaces in it and i got an "error 21" messege. Got rid of the spaces and it restored perfectly.
Ya I cant help putting spaces when I'm typing a message. Mine are back2bareroot, bugbst74, and bugbst76 and they all work fine.
It will recognize them if you rename the folder, as long as you don't violate the naming conventions. I don't know what specifically those conventions are, but if you only make a slight modification to the current name it should see it with no problem.
How do i rename them? do i have to do it plugged into my pc?
