    Default How to restore arc files from a backup?

    Ok I had nothing to do finally I have reset my stuck 5800 losing all the contacts, messages and notes
    Though I found a two years old backup in memory card and tried to restore it after fixing the fone but calender entries.arc file got attention mark on it saying "this content is missing or blah blah" and user files.arc cannot be restored either. I really want my notes (memos) back because I have all of my bank card numbers, credit card numbers etc on that tiny file
    So is there any way to restore it? I already restored them in Nokia suite but there are no notes after restoring. I tried NBUExplorer but it will not open userfiles.arc and it did open calender entries.arc but when I restore it to PC using NBUExplorer all I got is just a file with nothing.

    well go on pc in mass memory mode enable hidden files and make sure the arc files are in the backup folder, also if they are that old they may have being messed up ..

    Oh man ! Explained the same thing many times on DailyMobile !

    Do this :-

    1.Make a backup of anything [I mean anything-No compulsations] from your phone on E:/ [MEMORY CARD]

    2.After your phone has made the backup on your Memory card , just connect your phone with your PC on "MASS STORAGE MODE

    3.Now open the disk from your PC - Memory card drive !

    4.Also see that your windows has ''HIDDEN FOLDERS VISIBLE" enabled.

    NOTE :- To check it out , Go : Double click any folder/Computer >> Click Organise >> Folder ans search options >> Hidden Folders.

    5. Now if they are enabled than it's all right, but if they aren't enabled, enable the option !

    6.Enter your memory card. There you will see a semi-transparent folder named "BACKUP".

    7.Open it up. Delete , whatever is in it.

    8.Add your *******.rsc files to it.

    9.After adding them , Disconnect your phone.

    10.Restart it.

    11.Open File manager >> Backup >> Restore !!

    You are done !

    Even after replacing those files and putting the old backup files, it doesn't show any data to restore but the empty one..
