    Titanium Backup Pro (TBP) appears to back up Skype Mobile when requested, immediately showing it available for restoration. However, if I then request "Uninstall" for Skype, TBP issues a warning "You have no current backup of the current version of this app. Do you want to un-install it?".

    This happens whether or not I first "freeze" Skype. Thanks for any ideas on the problem.

    Alternative question: Is it possible to contact Jo

    I have had issues with titanuim backup before and emailed him and he did reply and resolve the issue. Is skype installed as a system app? And i get the same warning with all apps and with the exception of system apps ive been able to restore them. ive noticed with system apps it will back it up with no problem but if id uninstall the app it wouldnt let me restore it. However if it was installed i could restore the backup. I figured you just couldnt restore them and since i never NEEDED to i didnt look into it any further.

    I did try a backup / uninstall / restore of a market app I knew was not a system app (having suspected that was the problem). After backing it up, I got no warning on "uninstall", and also was able to restore it successfully.

    I want to be certain I can restore an app such as Skype before I remove it.

    If its not a sytem app you will, i change roms often so titanium backup is a dear friend of mine. It seems to always give that warning after a recent update but ive never had issues restoring. The only problem iver ever had was with the pro key. But the dev got that fixed for me.
