    This might be a long shot, but is there any way to find an old text message from my Lumia dated back almost 2 years? I have always had text message backup on.

    Let Cortana search?

    How do you restore them? Sorry I haven't really ever done this process before.

    (I think) the only way is to do hard reset first. Then you restore them during setup

    If your text message backup is on, the messages will be there. However, I have noticed that all messages from WP 8.1 do not restore to Windows 10 Mobile. All you have to do is select download messages from 'any time' and voil. This works without a hard reset as well.

    All of this is from personal experience. I have managed to restore messages from 2014 (on my first phone) in 2016 (to my second phone) using this.
