Hey, I hope its not a duplicate - believe me, I searched first.

My old Jolla 1 was gone, I bought a used and factory-reseted device. I'm in the EA-Group. When updating to 2.1. I made a backup. I wanted to restore that backup on my "new" Jolla 1. I updated the phone to 2.0.5 and then tried to restore the backup the first time from my sd-card. But the last two backups weren't visible. Then I updated to 2.1. and nothing new happend. The *.tar-file is on the sd-card. I changed the name of my old Backup.tar to something different and renamed the last backup to Backup.tar. It didn't helped. What to do now? Is there a possibility to solve it? Is there at least a list, what has to be copied from the backup-file to which place on the phone to restore the data manual? I started copying the pictures and on zendesk is described, what to do with the contacts.... But with the rest I'm uncertain.

EDIT: So, restoring the files for the browser was easy by following the directory-structure of the backup. These questions are quite interesting for me: How to restore my old Messages? How to restore my old Notes? and perhaps: How to restore my old Accounts?

On my Jolla 1 the backups are named differently since 2.0.5 (afaik), sailfish_backup_2017-02-08T16-24-07Z.tar for example

Are the backup files sitting in the root of your sdcard?

Yes, they are
