    I created a TAR backup of /data/media using TWRP/terminal booted into recovery.

    I did a factory reset (actually just the DATA partition and then rebooted the phone into SYSTEM (Normal boot). Went thru all the "new phone" rigmarole successfully.

    The went into recovery mode again and restored the TAR file. Figured it would restore the deice back to what it was before i was reset. NOPE!! Restoring the /data/media directory brought it back as though I had FACTORY RESET again.

    I've done this before, (but probably on Nougat) and it used to work. Anybody have an idea; I'm stumped.

    Thanks Boowho??
