    What a nightmare.. aside from the process taking an hour, I've lost all my folders - folders that were present in the backup.

    Anyone else had this happen to them?

    I had the same thing happen, all folders gone. But I also got a bunch of errors and had to restore from backup like 4 or 5 times before it worked, so that may be related.

    Bummer. I restored from the manual backup I did and it came out fine.

    In the past I had this happen more than once, in my case I had several folders named "Games", never got an error, they just got all screwed up, position, contents, etc.

    I started naming them "Games 1", etc, and now they restore fine.

    Never tried doing another restore, the time it'd take when I was expecting a phone call..

    Spent ages just putting them into folders again.
