  2. backup does not save shortcuts

    I use FX File Explorer by NextApp, Inc. It has feature to create shortcuts to any other normally accessable folder and put these shortcuts on the home screen. When I run MS Launcher Backup and then Restore, these shortcuts (and any Launcher folders they may be in) do not restore. I do not know if this is problem with MS Launcher or FX. I am sending them a copy of this report. Thank you for looking into this.

  6. Screen Lock Method

    Screen Lock Method setting gets turned off during the launcher default so gesture assigned (one finger swipe down) had to be reassigned. Gesture brings up the panel with the two lock choices... Not difficult to deal with but settings of any sort should remain stable on backup. Here they are not.

  19. i can't restore the backup

    The first thing is to congratulate you on the app.
    Later, I wanted to ask you a question, to see if you can help me.
    -I have a restore file created with an app version: 5.11.5.56365. Now I want to recover it, but I have downloaded the app again and the version is 5.11.5.56362. When I try to restore the app it returns an incompatibility error due to the difference in versions.
    - How can I load the restoration file created with the app version 5.11.5.56365, if the version that is posted on google play is 5.11.5.56362?
    Thanks in advance,
