    Hi..i have lumia 820 and i upgraded to developer preview last month..from past few days i have noticed most of the applications are failing to open... I tried reboot, soft reset but it didnt work..even added new languages,keyboard but even that didnt fix the problem...i dont want to hard reset since i dont want to loose the data..is there any way to fix the problem? Did any one of you face this issue?
    Thank you.

    Have you tried reinstalling the offending apps?

    Also now is a good time to make sure your data is backed up because a hard reset is a very real option that may have to be taken.

    Hmm, are they installed to an SD card by any chance?

    If its universally broken, I'd back up what you can, (if you can run a manual backup from the "backup" section in settings, do it.)
    Also copy over what media you have to a computer or something.

    Prepare yourself for a hard reset. I believe we have exhausted all the non-destructive options we have at this point since you already tried other methods such as the soft reset.

    I've had to do the same on my 928. Wouldn't back all my apps to the cloud and would bring up an error message. Tried multiple times so just hard reset the phone. Now it works. I don't know if there's a way to tell which apps aren't being saved.
