PLEASE HELP!!!

CWM used to restore backed up ROMs, no problem. In the last 3 or so months, restores fail, without fail, while restoring data. I flashed a TWRP recovery and tried backing up/restoring through TWRP. Same problem. System and Boot restore fine, but Data always fails.

This was never a problem until around the beginning of November 2013. Does anybody know how to fix this? I've tried the wiping SD card method, backing up to internal memory, etc. etc. with no luck.

Thanks,

I've had this problem before. I am sorry, but if that particular backup is corrupted for whatever reason, then it's unrecoverable. The post above is your best option, flash a working recovery. I hope you didn't have any precious files saved to the device itself, but most of your photos and other media was probably stored on your SD Card which should be fine (unless you specifically wiped it).

Sometimes it's best to just start over anyway.
