    I believe that it should have been you that put the data on your PC initially.. so you should now know where to find it OK?

    Save/Restore saves for games such as Angry Birds are independent of the device, and there are other threads with instructions on how to transfer game save data between HD and non-HD versions of such games.

    ...oh, well ...2bad...
    That is the attitude I'm referring to (along with "I am angry" and "...so much for that..." in previous posts) ... perhaps homebrew is not for you.

    Anyone willing to set up a save/restore backup for Mail Lists from Newness Development. It is listed in the save/restore list of supported apps, but under it says "save/restore do not work". I am more than willing to pay the bounty just need to know how to do it. I would really appreciate it, let me know. Thanks,

    people should take note.. That any app (that i have tried at least) that has its own set of templates (that need to be loaded when the app is started for the first time) won't restore until you allow start the app first and let the templates load. A couple of examples... Sorting thoughts and palm flash cards

    I'm not sure if mail lists has a similar thing or not, but this may be your issue

    actually, I initially wrote that script for Mail List. The problem is that the way it updates synergy with the mail lists do not seem to be able to be restored. I was disappointed, too, but nothing we can do.
    I am the creator of the PalmSpot entry “webOS Does, and Does, and Does Some More”, writes Save/Restore scripts and helps manage the script feed, and now writes webOS Nation's Tip of the Day

    Got a good tip for webOS Nation's Tip of the Day? Please send me a PM or use the Contact Us form and select "Suggest a tip"

    I just noticed that Clipboard on my TP does not save the archive. In the 'Save Application Data' screen, the Clipboard app indicates: Archive not saved (even when switched to the on position).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks much!

    I understand from the iShelf developer that he submitted a Save/Restore script on 12/31. Can you tell me when the next update is planned? My Pre+ is dying , and I've got an awful lot of data in iShelf...

    (2/16/12) Hello--anyone out there? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    The Supported Applications list has gotten so long that's it's a bear to scroll through. How about adding a Preware-style search to that view (or all the views, for that matter, if it takes just one instance of the code). I'd hope that it would be a fairly simple thing to do, since the code already exists in Preware.

    Any ideas when the next save/restore update will be released? Thanks.

    I have a couple questions. My eyes are tired from Googling so I hope this is an appropriate place to post.

    1.) Would anyone be willing/able to add a feature to save/restore such that Save/Restore would check to see if the cookies and database files were already initialized and, if not, go ahead and launch the app, wait for the files to be initailized, close the app and then proceed with the restore process?

    I keep losing data because of the damn "Application Database is Full" problem which wipes my device. I have hundreds of apps on my device and I haven't memorized which apps are supported by Save/Restore so restoring my apps is a very tedious process of launching apps and then launching save/restore.

    2.) I've noticed that timers in webOS are not very reliable, and the timer that Save/Restore uses to do daily backups is no diffrerent. It just *stops working* and there's no easy way to tell that it's not doing it's auto backups anymore.

    I have a cron job set up on my devices to do an rsync of my /media/internal folder back to my file server every night. I'd like to be able to call save/restore from that same cron job and have it run a backup automatically via cron. There was a link earlier in this thread that was supposed to help to:

    cgit error

    But now that page says:

    "Invalid request"

    So I don't know where to find this information.

    Thanks,
    -Jeremy
