    taken from the "What To Do After Upgrade" thread


    No


    I would not do it that way, I tried that and it didnt work so well...


    the easiest way to restore the backup is simply to delete ALL the folders/files off the Xoom via PC EXCEPT the "Android" folder.

    then copy/paste all backup folders/files except "Android" and paste it to the Xoom.

    Select the Xoom Android/Data folder:

    "data" folder rename to "data2", then paste the Backup 'data' folder into the Xoom Android Folder

    delete "data2" folder

    Done.

    The reason I suggest doing it this way is because the first I tried to restore the backup I simply copied/pasted everything and it just messed up- all files wrote into the Xoom "DCIM" folder

    This way its easier, and it will save you less time in the end, and the files go where they are supposed to. Also, I made the mistake the second time around of deleting all Xoom folders including "Android" (you cannot overwrite/create/copy or paste this folder from the backup)


    thanks in advance
    Neil
