    Question lost all my contacts even tho i backed them up :(

    okay so i backed up all my contacts using the Nokia Content Copier.. made a backup of what i wanted to keep, formatted my phone as i had a ****load of apps installed everywhere which left bits and peices there that i didn't even know what were..

    fresh install of the symbian OS, format mass memory, and all is new and clean ready to start fresh

    so i go into content copier again to restore my contacts after formatting, and it says it successfully copied my contacts over yay! so i go into contacts on my phone.. they're not there.

    Groups.. not there
    Sim contacts.. not there

    i restart my phone.. still not there.

    how big is a backup file usually? i have it right here, and after a "successful" backup (so content copier tells me..) it's about 23kb big.

    have i just lost ALL my contacts? or can anyone help

    ouch. i think this is a case of a bad backup. lets see..

    i don't lump my backups in 1 file. instead i do seperate backups (i.e backup contacts only, then messages only etc). and i do more than 1 back at any time =D

    500+ contacts, backup file size approx. 130kb
    thousands of messages file siz approx. 3mb
