Restoring A Crashed & Re-Booted XDA II From An .stg File
      #23920 - 05/16/06 02:52 AM

My XDA II crashed, and after re-booting it went back to the factory set-up menus. When I attach the device to my computer it wants to establish a new partnership and I can't use the 'existing' "Pocket_PC" partnership. If I set-up a new partnership and try to restore from my .stg file, it gives me an error warning saying the device was backed-up using a different device (even though I had just backed it up a day earlier using the same XDA II device ... it is NOT a different device!)

How can I restore my XDA II to the settings, Calendar, Contacts, etc. from the .stg file I have on my system? Please help! Thanks!

This seems to happen on the XDA II on a hard reset: it changes your country/language settings to default (might be UK English). Go to Regional settings and put the device back they way you had it before the crash. Then try the restore.

In the future you might want to invest in Sprite Backup, it's more reliable, faster and can make backups to SD cards. Here's our review:
