I did 2 back ups on 2 different laptops ( work &home), reset my phone to factory settings, tried to restore the files but it keeps failing, i lost all my data and address book.

please advise if there is a way to extract the files, noting that i tried atleat 4 softwares to extract, but apparently the file is corrupted. any ideas??

Re: cant restore Q10 backup

The files not able to be extraced.

 

When you do the restore, click the CUSTOM restore and ONLY click the SETTINGS to restore (not Media and not App Data).

 

See if that will restore successfully.

If so, return and restore ONLY your Media next.

then App Data.

Oh. I asked you to do them separately, not together.

Oh.

 

That's the best I can recommend, sorry. You must have a corrupt backup file.
