It shows the date the backup was created and the delete button is on the right but there is no restore button on the left. I can restore backups from Nandroid using Titanium but this takes forever and the backups are not as fresh.

Any help would be a lifesaver!

Well I know this situation the reason you don't get the restore option is cz that app is not suitable for the present ROM and new version or this app is not compatible..

The issue must be causedbmy something else.

I am on Wicked 7.3. Apps I bacled up pn this rom and tried to restore after I reflashb to same Wicjed 7.3 are missing restore button. I can restore the app from Nandroid or the market so it has nothing to do with incompatibility with the rom.

Question. Is it possible to restore only items backed up on a specific date?

No, I maintain a backup history of 3 and none are restorable. However some apps are restorable but many are not.

But be a little more noobie for me
Love the explanation of TB. Thank you for that.
However, I'm caught in a few steps back, on that majestic 4th post. I flashed a new CM11 ROM from my stock SGH i437, and I had to wipe everything. This is my first time with rooting, romming, backing up, and all that - I've been reading for a week in prep for today. So, I backed up with every app I could find that was recommended. That includes TB, and I backed it up to my card and to Google Drive - both. I used Nandroid. I used something else, can't even remember, as well.

I flashed CM11 after wiping everything. It loads up really nicely, no problems. Whelp - one problem. There's no app called Titanium Backup. I can't get to the steps that you so wonderfully describe. How do I get there - before I can restore all of my super duper backed up stuff? Currently, I'm staring at a neat new ROM with only its apps, but I've no other apps, no contacts, no - nothing. How do I restore?

the data that u backed up is safe in the external card . Now download the Titanium app again from play store and it will know how to restore, don't worry!

Such a simple step - I'm embarrassed that I was so stumped by it. Once I've done that, and I have now, it is still showing on TB that I have just 3 apps to back up. Since I did sync it to the cloud before wiping, I'm now in that process, again. It's in step 2 of 3, cleaning up the google drive folder. Here's hoping!

I still do not get why my Titanium does not work properly. I have Pro version. There is no restore button on majority of my apps. Only way I can restore in Titanium is to import a Nandroid backup and it takes forever for Titanium to analyze it.

I recently backup my game data. My question is, if i copy the files on the titanium backup folder to another storage like external sd card, can i still use these files if ever titanium backup is uninstalled?

What if i flashed a new room and wipe all the data and install titanium backup again, can i still use the files in the previous titanium backup folder ?
