Thanks for the procedure it just saved me many hours of work. It worked fine with a couple of minor exceptions. All of the applications were installed but the locations of the files needed to be changed (very minor issue) but more importantly even though it restored the applications it did not restore the application setting. The most important of which (in my case) is I have Opera Mini installed and it did not restore my bookmarks so I lost them all.
Another minor discrepancy is that the temporary file created (and I copied) did not get erased automatically after I pressed cancel. Maybe that is becasue of the new version of DM or maybe because I am using Windows 7.
