I've encountered one of the most common problems seen with backup files
I did a backup of Nokia x6 (FW 40.X latest) on Nokia PC suite and Nokia suite. I then did a hard reset of my phone and now I'm unable to restore text messages from backup file. In fact not just the new ones but none of the backup files are getting restored. I do a backup every 2 weeks and even the older files don't seem to work. Rest of the data got restored absolutely fine. Only have a problem with test messages.
I nearly have 7000 sms across inbox and my folders. too much data lose ( or may be too much to restore? ). Please assist. Thanks.
Firstly, have you checked that you have the latest version of Nokia Suite, which can be found here:
Also, were your files originally stored in your devices mass storage or on the device's Internal drive? If it was saved on mass storage, try formatting the memory card and restoring.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the replies.
@hazey....I don't think those threads are relevant to me at all. This is because I formatted my PC around mid october and from them on I've been using Nokia suite straight up. I never had OVI suite at all.
Also, one thing to note is that on my Nokia suite > messages I can still see my old messages upto 11th Nov which was the last date when I had synced my text messages. When I now try to sync it with my phone, that too doesn't work.
All my text messages were stored in phone memory. Can the number of text messages really cause this problem? This is a smartphone. should be able to handle that load i presume.
Very weird...looks like I need to head to Nokia care now....Both PC suite and Nokia suite can't read my sms anymore. I can't send sms too using both the suites. reinstalled the 40.002 firmware , even tried hard reset.....nothing works
