Only issue I observed was the SMS did not associate with the contact database thus I was not able to view my contact's SMS from within the contact...but this is expected.

Hello konker!

This wasn't a ROM backup but applications' backup: in fact, I had a look into each directory in my laptop and found IsolatedStore directory for each application with content inside...

That is very strange...& definitely not the intended design of this application (as far as I've understood & used it)!
If you look at C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Phone Update\Device_ID\RestorePoint\RestorePoint_ID\Data , you will find that the data folder contains files that are labelled Data.X.dat & Data.X.dat.hash. These are pieces of the ROM image that the application backsup & store at the exact location where Zune would store the backup image.
I'm not aware that this application is capable of backing up applications & data wholesale in situ.

@andreacorti: Did you recently update your phone? You may have installed Samsung's KK2 firmware update (for some phones, it installs at the same time as 8107 if you update using Zune). This update breaks the way that homebrew apps have been using provxml on Samsung phones (which this app uses to copy the message store files). I don't know if there's a work-around for Samsung phones currently.

actually, no.
I installed the 8107 with the cab posted here some months ago.
if I installed that samsung update, why WP7RootTools is still working?

Restore report
just wanted to report some things that happened while using v0.7 (not sure if these were reported already or not)

I followed the tutorial on page 1: (backed up store.vol and Pimindex.vol to my computer) flashed Pdaimatejam's v7.5 rom (Mango, not the new Tango one) and restored the files to BackupVols folder. I immediately rebooted, and re-synced my live account as instructed but I noticed my Facebook account said "Attention Required" and my Google account was missing. I deleted the facebook account, and re-added it without a problem. With Google though, I re-created it, but kept giving me an error code and saying "Attention Required". Some of my contact's photos were also messed up.

I left my phone overnight, and when I woke in the morning my Google account synced fine and everything was back to normal. Strange. Also all my text messages were there (minus the MMS pictures) so I'd say mission accomplished!

Thanks to the Dev(s) for their hard work! Was waiting for this feature. Now I think I 'll use Mango over ICS

I too experienced the 'Attention Required' warning repeated for one of my Google accounts. It also kept prompting me for my password even though I knew with absolute certainty that I have entered the password correctly.
I decided to login to that Google account using my computer browser & I was greeted with a prompt to ascertain my identity because according to the webpage, my account was recently accessed from another region other than the one I usually login from. After clearing that hurdle, I was able to login fine & almost instantly, the 'Attention Required' warning in phone went away.
So, I guess there is a temporary blockage in my affected Google account that was preventing my phone from logging in & syncing data with the Google server. Looking up the error code might have helped but I did not bother.
