Has anyone found a way to do this yet? Here's what happened.
Installed an OS 2 weeks ago, and backup went as planned. While restoring after loading the OS, the restore failed, so the messages were there, but the SMS options were never restored! Therefore, the option to keep messages forever was changed to 30 days. And I went from 3500 messages down to 300.
So I made a backup of what's current, and restored my last backup. However, Desktop Manager overwrites what's current...so I'm stuck between choosing what's current and what's past. Any ideas?
I don't see why merging the backup into the current data is so difficult...
