    I have the latest Insider W10 on my 640XL and will be receiving a new Nokia 1520 today which obviously will have Windows 8.1, I want to use my new 1520 stock for a while just to make sure all is good with the phone itself before doing any changes.. Would it be unadvisable to restore from my current W10 backup that is if it even would(thinking it may not restore from a different/newer OS).

    I think he wants his backup downloaded to 1520 running 8.1 from 640xl running 10 and before doing that shud he reset Lumia 640xl to have his backup restored to 1520 correctly.

    Yes currently using a 640XL w/W10 and will be receiving my new 1520 today and wondered if when setting up the 1520 should I allow it to restore from the 640XL's Windows 10 backup??

    I think when u set up, backup will actually ask you to restore backup from what date? Usually there would be a couple of backups in the server, so i beleive you can choose the backup of that date before u installed the 10preview

    hmmm.. I went into my OneDrive backups and the only one showing is todays Windows 10 backup. It must be overwriting the old one everytime, I know I ran backups when on Windows 8.1, definitely before I updated to Windows 10 a month or so ago.
    The Good news is my 1520 just arrived, nicely sealed and ready for its maiden voyage :)

    It doesn't overwrite. The last five backups have to be shown at any cost. Just let me know what did u encounter while setting up

    Well after getting it updated to 8.1 I went into Settings/Backup but there is no Restore option there.. No big deal, I just finished up getting most of my apps and settings to my liking.. If/when I update to W10 I know my backup is there from my 640XL.. Thanks all for the assistance..

    Edited; something got backed up, text messages from a month ago popped up in my messages..
