    My memory card was getting showed as "corrupted", and hence after backing up data, I formatted the card from my phone itself; which inturn deleted all the apps in that (which was quiet obvious). I reinstalled the apps, tried to copy back the data to the card, but the apps seems to me new born.

    So, is there any way to replace the app data? Any way?

    PS: I don't wana play everything down from the beginning :( :( :(

    I am not sure how you did the backup but coping it to for example to your PC will not work.

    1) In settings > backup > you should have enabled apps+settings (and "back up now")
    And after that you should have done a factory reset and during the setup restore the backup you made.

    2 Or if you have space on your internal memory move the apps (games) to the internal memory and after formatting you SD card move them back.

    The "disadvantage" from 1 is that if the developer did not enable the game setting back up you lose your game settings. The advantage is that you have a fresh install of your OS.

    The advantage from 2 is that you will keep your game settings but due to "limited storage space of the internal memory you probably can not move all apps to the internal memory.

    As already said coping the data to a PC will not work.
    If you however already (always) enabled the app+settings back up and there was no new backup made after you formatted your SD card you still could do the factory reset so actual following method 1.

    Good luck
