    hey guys,

    been looking all over but no luck on information about this...

    i've got a tonne of games.. i think about a hundred or so paid apps.. and quite a few of them have in app purchases... (yes i'm silly that way) but i like to support the developers.

    the playbook has been running slower and slower.. and i've read that doing a security wipe will help...

    so now i'm in the (really long) process of doing a full backup of my playbook.

    i need to know if...

    1. i can restore all the apps/games/media after i do a security wipe from the backup made..
    2. will my in app purchases be there? including game saves etc...


    so worried i will mess everything up and have to re download the hundred odd apps... and lose all the save points!!! and paid items..


    that would be terribly frustrating.

    anyone?


    thanks buddies

    Yes all original settings, saves and apps will backup and restore properly. The only ones that won't are apps/games that are sideloaded

    thank you for the reply...

    another 2 hours till the backup is complete (fingers crossed).

    and i will bravely do a security wipe.

    will share results!

    cheers!

    Best of luck. There are some apps out there that for some reason affect the backup process (causing it to fail). One of them that I have pinpointed is RecipeBox (by President's Choice). There are others but I have so much crap on my Playbook but its really hard to pinpoint now. I went from 16gb to 32gb and now on a 64gb.
