Default Backup won't restore!?

Please Login to Remove!

Because of changes to BES at work I have to do a security wipe of my Curve about 1-2 per year. I always backup using BB Desktop software and then restore with no problem. Not this time! I used a program called Magic Berry to oepn the ipd. file and I can see that all the files and info (contacts, memos etc.) are there - but BB Desktop won't restore it to my Curve (I've tried a few times already). Any ideas? I've already powered the phone off and on a few times and taken the battery in and out - no luck. Thanks

Why do you do a restore this way, the BES keeps a wireless backup of your data, so when you activate your phone again, your data will be restored.

Heh, heh. I own my own BB and have my own data plan - don't use a company BB or use the data plan offered by the office. I have lots of stuff on my BB that is not on the BES.
