Just a question I have to the Belle adopters.
To those of you who backed up your phone via Nokia suite or onto memory card (not the automatic backup that happens with Belle update), have any of you restored the same to your phones AFTER upgrading to Belle? Did you find the contents of your C: drive restored? And what about apps that were installed on C: before updating? I hope someone who had done this can shed some light on this.

2. You CAN'T backup your E drive on your phone: just copy out your photos, video and map ( labeled as Cities ) on to your laptop or a friend's. Any app installed on E drive would be lost after format ( if you return the '' CITIES '' folder back to the E drive all your routes would be preserved )
3. To back up the WHOLE device you have to hook it up to Ovi suite and backup everything including your apps.

i hv tried in search widget n found that prediction or suggestion is there......Dear Dr.Bidhan:-)
please suggest me how to format only E drive and restore because i didnt find any separate option to take backup for E drive. Because when Im trying to take backup its for whole device i think... Thanx in advance
My search app is working perfectly,
Just used it to dig up one of my ancient notes i had no hope of finding on my E63.
Little things like the screen orientation after unlocking which now follows the phone orientation is welcome ( in anna if you lock in landscape and unlock in portrait there's a visible readjustment )
Ashman, 17 Feb 2012The search thing is not predictable with Belle update. Used to be better in Annadear ashman

because when i select the backup in filemanager the only One option is coming as "backup" its separately not asking for E drive, C drive and memory card, please help. Thanx in advance
C7-zak, 17 Feb 2012One more thing dear Ashman, you mean i have to save data at some other place and forma right.... morego to your file manager where you can view all the drives... hold your finger on E: Mass memory and format option will appear.
C7-zak, 17 Feb 2012Dear Ashman, I think it will automatically get saved when we proceed to update.. Isn't it..??Some important stuffs like contacts, calendar etc will get saved depending upon your configuration. You can take the backup of the entire E drive to your pc hard drive or pen drive via USB otg.... or if you have a big enough Micro SD card ... you can take the back-up there as well. Later you can restore what you want.
Its interesting to read everyone's feedback here and its quite helpful too.
I haven't updated my C7 to belle yet cos I don't want to reinstall everything back manually and I dont have the sis/sisx files of some apps I use anymore. The newer apps coming from Nokia like Maps Suite 2.0 will all require belle, guess will have to forego them for now.
What is heartening is that Belle is a major update that changes the look and feel of the OS unlike other platforms where updates are basically bug fixes.Kudos to Nokia for that.
Will keep watching and waiting and maybe update at some point later!!Cheers to everyone here for the good work.
C7-zak, 17 Feb 2012One more thing dear Ashman, you mean i have to save data at some other place and forma right.... moreThe E: drive is not the system drive and wont interfere with your belle or anna installation. What Ashman is suggesting is that you format it so that you can have a fresh clean installation, ie just like a factory new C7 would be. You will lose all your apps, games etc and will have to reinstall them again. Backing up/saving the drive and copying everything back after formatting defeats the purpose of formatting in the first place.
Ashman, 17 Feb 2012Take a back-up first then proceedOne more thing dear Ashman, you mean i have to save data at some other place and forma right. Secondly when i format i wont get back my apps and games right.?

I think it will automatically get saved when we proceed to update.. Isn't it..??
C7-zak, 17 Feb 2012Dear GadgetLover... If i want that theme effects, hacking is compulsory..?? Thanx in advanceI don't think a hacked c7 is necessary, if you have a way to sign the file it should be fine..
