Default HTC Backup - What does it back up?

Hey guys ,

Title says it. I just need to know what the HTC Backup app actually backs up ? The one thats in the settings menu. Does it include app Data Or the apps themselves ?

Good question op.

So does it backup all apps data or only those that have been coded to take advantage of Google's app data backup options for instance.

I may have to do a nandroid and reset to see what happens.

For anyone who is interested.

I just installed viper and restored my phone from the HTC Backup .

It restored settings, messages , contacts , home screens, folders, and also downloaded apps . However my app data were all gone . I had to set up every app from scratch again .
