    o.o.... well that's a strange occurrence
    After spending around a year on here nothing surprises me anymore. This idea that WP is bullet proof is incorrect. There is nothing more frustrating when you lack control of any sort. Especially in regards to restoring your data.

    When I reset my phone once I lost my backup, so I wasn't surprised to have issues.

    I should also point out that I'm a little bit more forgiving about things going wrong. My wife isn't. She gets annoyed at these things. Usually blaming me for when things go wrong. :P

    I guess I never understood one thing. so if you wipe your phones using NCS or w/e they use to have a clean slate, does the backup you do to the cloud erase ?

    When you use the software your backup is still there and can be used when log in to your phone.

    I'm not sure what happened with my wife's phone. Might have had something to do with the apps being stored on SD card.

    With my experience I have no idea what happened. I couldn't restore the phone at all. Thankfully I didn't have anything important on there.

    there is one thing that I read in the documentation on backups on wp. when the backup thing gets turned off the backs ups stored in the cloud is deleted. now if you rest your device to stock settings ( settings and phone info) the back ups are still there. so that makes me think along the lines of when the devices gets a clean slate, I guess the backup setting gets turned off and the data in the cloud gets deleted. still I wonder why it wouldn't get restored all the way

    The backup wasn't deleted, it was still there. Why it didn't restore properly I can only assume it was due to it being a backup from the developers preview. I can't think of any other reason.

    I've restored my device properly after using the Nokia software before.

    LOL it's the most quintessentially British lunch, a choice of gammon, turkey or beef with a sauce if you want (e.g. Turkey comes with cranberry) then some gravy and roast potatoes. Lunch of champions!

    That's why it belongs on the Eats thread! :D

    I don't go to pubs that often. We occasionally have a Sunday Roast.

    That's Slovene language, it's horrible with all those exceptions. Could be just feeling because we go into details, since its or native language.
    C'mon, lets see your desk :) I'm interested.
