    No problem at all.
    I am what amounts to a Jr. expert and my knowledge is limited but I know there are senior ones who will figure out the things I can't. I am sure it is something simple.

    lol your telling me!
    haha

    I just got the phone booted back up, let's see if the backup works

    ok
    WTH??
    it says "the file could not be opened. it does not appear to be a valid device database file.

    but this is the dile that DM kicked out when I made the back up... am I missing something?

    ok...
    interesting...
    the only backup that it would let me restore from was the first pearl back up I did back in april.
    why would that be the only good one?

    Do you have an older back up? if so try loading it. You may have to update some info but thats better than re adding it all.

    thanks both of you guys...
    yeha smurf I'm going to need to re-add you...
    when I get to work I'm going to see if I can't get on of my previous backups there to work.

    weirdest thing though... I uninstalled DM 4.3 and re-did 4.5 (just to try me theory about backups made with 4.5 and they still don't work. hope I have better luck at work today, I'll let you guys know. thanks again for all the help

    Man, I was all stressed out reading through this thread! Glad the Cowboy and Smurf got you back up and running, Luc.

    Not sure why your backup files aren't working, though. What exactly is the problem? Are you getting an error message on a restore or something?

    hey rogro, thanks for popping in on this one, good to see you again.
    anyway,
    it says "the file could not be opened. it does not appear to be a valid device database file.


    and I don't understand why ALL of them say that except for the first backup I did with my pearl.

    lucifer,

    Tell us when you are seeing this message? I suggest you try this (if you have not already)

    In DM (with your phone connected) - Back up/Restore - use the Advanced button. On the left side of the screen you will see FILE. Click on that and browse to a more recent back up. If it will open, try restoring databases one (or a few) at a time and see if you have more success. If one database fails, try the next.
