    Hi there - dont know if this is possible, but i have a 1020 with the preview.

    It's been hard-reset and working beautifully.My phone backs up to & restores from OneDrive account 'A' but i want to swap to account 'B' as it is my personal account & has much more capacity than account 'A'.

    I know you have to effectively do a reset if you wish to change your Windows account on your phone, but i was hoping to avoid completely recreating my settings and losing sms history - Does anyone know if it is possible to move the "backed up device" files from one OneDrive account to another? (as far as i can see, you can only restore from the account your already use as your Windows account)

    Thanks

    I don't think this is possible, unfortunately. Far as I know, the user can't actually find/access backup data on OneDrive....

    Yeah, i imagine that is the case... Still a major lack of flexibility in that area... (there was a link around about using Aliases to swap your account, but that won't work either - can alias using an already existing account)
