Sorry for you phone... RIP

Actually it seems that you can do sth about this... I found this site where you can see that some people were able to recover some things from their backups using Titanium backup (Pro edition) or the Nandroid Manager (free and paid versions).

PS.: Before restoring anything, make a backup. If you are restoring contacts or other things from your old system apps better not restore the apps only the data...

Good luck!

thanks for your reply. aren't those apps can only recover files that were backed up by those software? i used htc sync manager, which is the official software for htc phones. since my htc one phone is dead i cant install any software on that device. i need something for the pc. i only have that backup. sony's pc companion app can restore files from ios backup but not androids. i need a workable android phone or a htc device.

wish android had something like the icloud.
