Any way to restore my old data?
  • I recently wiped all the data from my phone. Before doing so, I copied all of the (non-root) data to my computer. I had never selected "Backup Database" from the settings in wwdiary. I had just assumed that the data must already be stored somewhere in the folders I was copying, and that I would be able to restore it by copying those folders back to the phone after the wipe.

    Now that I look at the database files in the backup directory I made, it appears as though none of my old data is in there. Is there any way I can get all of my old data back (especially my favorites info which was extensive)? Where was the active data stored on my phone before the wipe? Was it in a root-only-accessible directory? Did I blow it away?

    Best,
    Andrew

    Those backup programs cannot read app data without root privileges, as far as I know.

    :( Unless you were a subscriber with an active sync account or you had a backup manually, I don't think there's any way to restore it.

Howdy, Stranger!
