    Remember that letter I was going to write to Apple?
    About how pissed off I was that I'd restored 8 times... lost all my save game data...

    I changed my ways - Backed up once every TWO DAYS.

    Then yesterday, I got the SWOD installing Twinkle (I'm on holiday... using a dialup connection from my mobile phone... still am now...)

    Quick! BackUp from the 24/7/08!

    -Backup Could Not Be Completed Because The Data Is Corrupt Or It Is Not Compatible With Your iPod-

    WHAT!?!?

    WHAT!??????!?!?!?!?


    BACKUPS ARE REDUNDANT!?

    ffs.







    Letter to Apple time. Yipee...



    EDIT: Just restored from BackUp - And it didn't even restore my settings because I always have 24-Hour clock.

    WTH?
    If my saved game files arent in this backup...

    I don't get backups, I've restored 6 times, and EVERY single time, its corrupt, WTF is the point in making backups, if they back up nothing......

    next time I need a restore, I'm doing what Freefall and Abcmsaj are doing, pwning my iPod, and using ssh to actually back up my save games, at least then it won't be so annoying when I come to restore.

    Has anyone here actually had to restore and had a backup actually restore their save data, settings etc ?
