Exclamation Unable To Restore Backed-Up Data !!

Recently I lost my XM 5800. I had backed up text messages and contacts using the inbuilt application (that makes .arc files) on my SD card.

So I went ahead and got myself an N97 as a replacement. The problem that I'm facing is that when i try to restore these .arc files on my N97 it doesn't read them.

Please suggest recommend any other way to restore my contacts and messages to my N97.


I din't make any back-up using PC Suite.
I tried NBU explorer and Noki but they dont seem to work.

It may be, that restoring the .arc works only on another 5800 (even if it is is basically the same hardware and software internally as the N97).

An Ovi Suite/PC Suite backup might be safer as they know about restoring user data to a different Nokia model than what it was backed up from.

Restore your back up from the SD card to another 5800, try borrowing one. Then make a back up from this 5800 using PC Suite or Ovi Suite. Next restore the back up from the PC Suite / Ovi Suite into your N97.
