    Recovering backed up data after upgrade to 20.0.015 - computer with Vista

    I upgraded my phone's software to 20.0.015 (from 013) earlier, and before doing so, backed up all my data using PC-Suite. After the upgrade, I couldn't recover it - I installed the latest version of PC-Suite, as recommended on some other thread, but it still wouldn't work (it said everything had been copied to the phone, but nothing was there). I use an Acer Aspire PC running Windows Vista. The information isn't that vital, but I'd like to get it back (and be able to use this facility in the future) - what can anyone recommend, even if just so as to be able to somehow access the files where the contacts/SMSs are stored (I don't know where they are stored, nor how to access them) so as to retrieve them manually (by viewing as text) if necessary?

    Not entirely sure what has gone wrong matey, all I know is nothing worked right for me on Vista. Not a huge issue as I have access to an XP machine also, and this is fine.

    My bro uses Vista, 32bit, with no issues. No idea why it does not work for me, but I know a few others with similar issues running Vista.

    I disagree. I used to be of the same opinion but that was before I built a high end system and picked up the 64-bit version of Vista.

    I have very few issues with Vista and XP alongside it looks boring (bit like an old girlfriend..)

    But I wouldnt go for 32-bit Vista on a low-med end PC..

    Can you not run PC-Suite on Vista in XP-compatibility mode?

    I don't have Vista, so I'm only guessing that this may work for some of you...
