When I wanted to jump over from my Jolla 1 to Sailfishx / Xperia it wasn't possible to move all data via backup / restore functionality of SailfishOS. The backup file isn't recognized by Sailfishx when trying to restore it with the Xperia from SD card.

I contacted Jolle Care and I was told that this feature isn't supported in between different SailfishOS devices but just for the same typ e.g. Jolla 1 to Jolla 1 or Jolla C to Jolla C etc. Even in case the backup file is recognized incompatibility problems may occur so it's not recommended to go this way.

I think this compatibility it's a must have in the same mobile ecosystem! Like it is now it feels like coming from iOS or Android... :-(

Backup - restore worked perfectly moving all data from Aqua Fish Sailfish ver. to Sailfish X on my Xperia X.

Restore didn't bring over the notes data for me on Sailfish X. Not sure if that is normal?

Sailfish FP2 > SailfishX restore worked. Gallery took a ton of time to restore (several hours for ~2-3GB), but it completed successfully.
