    I am a rooting noob, and I have made two backups with nandroid, but I can't find either on my SD card. I am looking on the root of the card.
    Any ideas?

    Thanx,

    Ron

    They should be in a folder called "nandroid" on your sd card - mine are...

    If yours aren't, please post details about your setup.

    (Moved you here to get the right attention.)

    I have a folder called 'nandroid - 2.0', but I don't see any .zip files there.
    I am looking for a .zip, right?

    I just tried a third backup, and still cannot find anything. I followed the step by step directions with a 2 part video.

    I rooted with Fresh 3.2, unrevoked forever.

    I am trying to make backups via Rom Manager. It goes thru all the steps, and looks like it is doing something, but
    I can't find it afterwards.

    Actually, the backups are stored in a hierarchical structure and each will have its own folder - and the folder contents will be .img (image) files and a checksum (.md5) file.

    I just found them in 'clockworkmod/backup/***'

    Maybe I misunderstand, and this is not a true 'nandroid' backup..?..

    Thank you!

    You know what? I think I totally misspoke and just fired from the hip on a .img search.

    Best I stand back and let somebuddy with the RIGHT info set us both straight - because I think you're totally right! I have that same structure - with .img files at the end of the food chain.
