IPhone :: Can't Restore My Backup Because Not Enough Space On Disk
Jul 3, 2012
Im using Iphone 4 32G and a windows XP. the space in my local disk C: is not enough to restore my Iphone but I already backup my Iphone and its on my C: So when I restore It copies the backup again on C: So what should I do? I need my stuffs back !
I am trying to restore a backup from iTunes for my iphone. It tells me I have not enough free space. I already deleted lots of photos and apps. Still no luck. Could I reset my phone to factory settings and do it that way? The reason I have to go through all this is, I lost a whole thread of text message from one person and need them back.Â
You know when in windows on your pc. You look at C: drive and there is a kind of pie chart there saying how much is used. I know an SD card is not like a disk but it would be yummy to see a similar thing on my BB. Is there such an app? Or even anything similar?
so i got ovi maps working fine with my 5800 but on a couple of occasions it has failed but downloaded the maps.just wondering if the map loader stores map data on the hard drive temporarily? as i have noticed like 6 gb of space gone if so does anyone know where it might be?
I'm using C7-00, after upgrading to Belle the disk space was 329MB. When I opened the device manager to check the name of the OS the disk space suddenly dropped to 280MB. I checked all the folders but there was nothing wrong.
Both my mom and i have an iPhone 4. before we were on the same iCloud account but yesterday my mom made her own. So she can backup her phone to the iCloud. Also yesterday i got a replacement iPhone 4 because my lock button had broke. Everything on my phone is the same they used the iCloud to back everything up. However i want to backup my phone to iCloud but on my phone under the backup and storage, i have 3 phones therefore theres not enough space to backup my phone. I have my first iphone 4, my moms, and my new iphone 4. i already deleted my moms backup but there isnt enough room still. Is there a way i could merge my old phone and my new phones' backups? and what would happen if i deleted my old phones backup? i dont want to lose anything!
I have been having this issue ever since I have gotten the iPhone 4. Its really irittating because my 4 is only 8GBs. Every time I connect my 4 to my computer, iTunes pops up and it syncs it and go through the steps of sync and backing up. But when it does this, my other memory space goes up. Every time I use my iPhone 4 then need to put more music or something it goes through that synchronization process and back up, which then makes my other space go up more. Now I only have 1.1GB of space left. I been having this problem and trying to figure out what is the problem. But when today I connect it I notice it goes up when backing up and all that. I have research a lot of people have the same issue but its because of something else, or because they "Jailbreak It" which mines is not. My iPhone 4 is on the latest ios5 which is 5.1.1.
I updated my iphone 5S, which I regret because it made my music app unplayable. I backed it up before updating, while trying to restore my phone from that back up an error message pops up sayif there is not enough room to restore from back up. There's 16.6 GB used and 10.2GB available. I read online that I can go to settinga > general > erase all content and settings, and that would free up the space to restore from back up. However I had this same issue on my old phone and no matter how much I deleted from my phone there still wasn't enough room to restore from back up. So I'm concerned that if I do clear my phone by erasing all content and settings that I will still be unable to restore my phone from back up and then I'll just be screwed.
I have lost ~20 pictures I took during my family's 4th of July event this weekend. It was the first time they have met my 17 month old daughter. Normally I wouldn't sweat loosing pictures, but these are very important to me.It restored every picture up until the backup I did before I left Sunday morning. I have tried A few different backups, one I made before I erased and synced my phone(new computer, old one was my work computer, no access to it).
I'm planning to restore my iPhone while updating to iOS 4 since I've bee using the same old backup for 3 years or so now, installed a bunch of thing etc... so I want to start from scratch.
The only thing I don't want to lose are my SMS.I also don't want to jailbreak my iPhone. What are the solution to backup only my SMS (so not regular iTunes backup) and then restore that only to my freshly installed iOS4?
I finally updated my iPhone to 5.1. I waited so long because of the fiasco updating my iPod Touch when 5.0 first came out. I thought it worked, I was pleased Apple worked out the bugs. Lo and behold, all of my apps and folders disappeared before my eyes. No problem I thought, I did a back up. Restore from back up. Fifteen minutes later, it looks exactly the same. Isn't a backup supposed to be of everything on the system so that if something goes wrong, you just revert back to the back up and either try again or wait for the process to be fixed? Seriously, get your stuff together.
I just updated to iOS 5.1.1 on my 3GS phone, previously using 5.0, while plugged into the computer and iTunes 10.6.3. I had the phone set to backup to iCloud, and ran a sync operation before updating.Does that not also create a backup?When the restore process began, it asked if I wanted to set up as a new phone or restore from backup. However the list of available backups did not have anything from today.The last one listed was from October 2011.So I cancelled that operation, went through the new phone setup and then it asked if I wanted to restore from iCloud. So I chose the most recent iCloud backup which was from around 6 AM this morning. Now it is in the process of downloading all my apps, pics, and perhaps music as well. I don't know but it's going to take HOURS to finish this.
Anyway I opened some apps that have already downloaded, and some app data appears to be intact. But other apps have nothing after October 2011. And I'm talking apps that have tracked my fitness and workout progress over the past 6 months, bike rides in the past few months, car fuel fillup and maintenance history since October, I'm talking LOTS of data that appears to be gone.What did I do wrong here? Did I not do what I should have done regarding backups? What is the point of backing up to iCloud if it's not going to back up all my app data?
I have been using my iPhone 4 as an iPod for a while because I'm waiting for AT&T to unlock it. I wanted to restore my phone to backup in my computer, but the restore button only restored my phone to factory settings, and it now tells me to activate the phone but I don't have the original SIM. Is there a way to restore to backup without activating the phone?
i restored my iphone4 to factory settings because it was running slow and some apps werent working. My phone is now stuck in repair mode and is continually rebooting itself. I know the usual solution would be to restore via itunes but itunes will not allow me to do anything as i get the error "itunes cannot find disk"
My 'backup and restore' app won't back up my text messages... it backs up the other things on the list for example the contacts, call logs, brower history etc. I would like to save the messages before I update my phone.Or unless there is another way of saving my messages, i.e. saving them onto a pc or something.I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro.
I had faced this issue when i last updated my phone when the 2.1 had come out.. I installed the latest Backup and Restore application as recomended by the SE update site.. Then backed up my files onto an already existing backup (which i think has corrupted the backup), hence overwriting the file.. After that i upgraded to 2.1 and restored my files, which failed because the contacts were not successfully imported (even though the Backup and Restore app said that the import was succesful.)
i was asked to repair the firmware using PC companion and hence want to backup succesfully without any problems. I cant risk loosing my contacts again. And i want to know from others in this forum if they have faced this issue on normal backup (not overwritten on an existing backup). [URL]
I'm considering trying a JB on my phone, but I do not want to deal with plugging it in just to restart. To some people it's not a big deal, but my personal preference is to not have to deal with it. I just want to make sure I have the process correct:
1. Perform a backup of my iPhone in iTunes. 2. D/L, install, run Blackra1n 3. Phone will be JB'd, possibly untethered, which would be awesome. 4. If it ends up being a tethered JB, and I wish to undo everything, I can just restore from that backup in iTunes.
I broke my old iPhone 3G (16GB) so today I went to the Apple store, and got a new one for free by setting up an AT&T account (this free iPhone 3G is 8GB). I got home, plugged it in my laptop, and wanted to transfer my stuff from my old phone over to my new one so I clicked restore from last backup. When I did so, I got this error message: iTunes could not restore the iPhone because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPhone that is being restored. I need to restore from my last backup but apparently it's corrupted?
I was not aware of the 5.0 issues and upgraded 'to the latest version'. Then I had to chose to backup again and chose the wrong one. I need to restore from a later backup as I've currently got a backup from 2010, not from last week on my phone.
