[Request] Backup App - FTP
I updated to 1.1.4 and trusty old iTunes crashed while restoring from backup.
When I reconnected, instead of finishing the restore, it did a Sync. And for all who know this process, it backs up and then syncs. Consequently it deleted my previous backup and I lost everything backed up in iTunes.
(I also backed up on my own, so I didn't lose anything but it is a big hassle to place every file and make sure the permissions are set correctly.)
So, since I figure this type of program would take two seconds to code (for those with working toolchains, and a little experience) I figured I'd post the following idea.
A program that could backup and restore all the necessary database files to and from a FTP server.
Basically, for the backup, zip up "/private/var/mobile/Library" possibly allowing users to select which apps to backup, or just including AddressBook, Calendar, CallHistory, Notes, Preferences, SMS, Voicemail, Webclips. Upload to webserver as specified by the user.
And for the restore have it grab the zip file from the server, unpack the files to the phone and then make sure the permissions are set correctly. Then prompt the user to restart. :cool:
