How do I troubleshoot backup permissions?

Posted

I was able to backup my old phone with B2G-flash-tool's script. And I was able to push most of that backup onto a new phone, but it got hung up and kind of crapped out my phone. The calendar and mail apps had data, but the marketplace wouldn't even load. I just got a white screen. So I re-flashed my phone and set it up from scratch. I'd like to backup the basic setup I've got now, but I'm getting warnings and no data is being stored:

     amanda@mona:B2G-flash-tool$ python backup_restore_profile.py -b -p ../Squid/sep13bak

The process creates a "sep13bak" directory and creates subfolders for b2g-mozilla, data-local and wifi but they're all empty. I can't figure out why I wouldn't be able to pull files. I didn't need root on my old phone. Is there a setting that I toggled ages ago that I'm missing here?

Ugh. Nevermind. I literally just had to turn off "USB Storage."
