    Need to Restore memopad only..

    Advertisement



    I've never done this before. What is the proper way to restore just memopad from a backup without overwriting everything currently on the device? I'm also hoping/assuming that the last good version of my memopad is on my last backup file.

    use the advanced button on your backup/restore window. once everything loads, use the arrows to restore selected components.

    I tried that. Only the right side loaded which is the device databases. The left side which is the desktop databases is empty. So how do I get the left side to load with my memopad file?

    You will need to browse to it. (File - Open) It will be a .ipd extension

    Also do you have the application you want to restore loaded on your device?

    On what screen would I browse that? I'm have DM 4.3 btw.

    And yes, I have memopad on the device. Only it doesnt have any of my old notes. Not sure why when I wiped,restored, and upgraded to 4.5 the memos were lost. I'm trying to retrieve the old ones from the backup file.

    Your back up file will look like this (except the date will be different):

    Yes, I know that

    Where do I load it? You said to use File, Open. Not sure what screen on the DM you're referring to.
