: Sorry to hear that you are not happy with Pocket Backup and here is some possible explanation for what you are seeing.
: On hard reset, the operating system creates new shortcuts for the start menu. These shortcut files are not deleted by Pocket Backup when you do a restore operation, because the application doesn't delete files that were not in the backup. (This is safest and most often convenient).

(Karl-Heinz Versl) understand, makes sense

: As for PocketTV, I'm not sure how where they store the registration information, if it is in the registry, then it would be restored. If they use a combination of registry, + object identification information (OID), then there may be an issue because, when an object is created on restore (e.g. file or database record), it gets a diffent object id than it originally had.

(Karl-Heinz Versl) could you check whats happen with PocketTV ( Sorry, I am not a programmer or expert for this field.

I'm not sure that there is anything that we can do about that. I'd be interested in having a look at the Pocket Backup log files created on backup and restore.

(Karl-Heinz Versl) Shall I send you the Backup log file ?

: Hope this helps.
: Sean

Kind Regards,

Karl-Heinz Versl
