I backed everything up this morning, did a full wipe and flashed another Rom to test. Well after I was done with that Rom I wiped again and restored my back up. When I opened the app drawer every installed app I had was gone. My home screen still had a couple icons for those apps but they weren't installed.

I wiped again flashed the backup a second time with no luck. Then I tried a previous backup and had the same issue. I flashed clockworkmod recovery and tried to restore a previous backup I made with that and still had the same issue.

I'm using synergy rls 1
More freedom kernel
Used RA recovery and clockwork

All of the apps were installed on the phone so they weren't on the SD card.

Has anyone had this issue before?

It happens every time to me. Until yesterday. I backed up using recovery instead of ROM Manager and all my apps were there when I restored. I guess just make sure you back up using Recovery, not ROM Manager. Or use Titanium Backup... That always works too.

It's weird because all of my backups are through recovery. I've never had this issue till today. No matter how many times I restore my user data doesn't show up.

that that is strange. if you look at the nandroid backup files do you see a data partition file. if so is that file big enough to suggest that contains all of your apps? maybe your recovery is not backing up any apps so there's nothing to the restore later.

All backups show they have plenty of user data. What's even more weird its that I noticed while restoring that while its doing data I can see that it is actually flashing my info. As to where that info is after I boot up is still a mystery.

Are there any clues in the recovery log?
