About restoring your device content
When restoring device content, it is better to use a USB cable connection rather than Bluetooth, because this makes the restoration run much faster. For more information on connecting via a USB cable, see About connecting your device via a USB cable.

The latest backup file from the currently connected device is selected as default. If the connected device does not have any existing backups, the latest existing backup file defined according to the date is selected as default. Note that if you have previously used Nokia PC Suite to back up your device content, you can restore the backup files with Nokia Ovi Suite.
If you select to restore a different backup file, the view is updated automatically according to the contents of the selected file. Only the content which can be restored to the currently connected device is shown. All content backed up from a different device model may not be compatible with the currently connected device.
Your music tracks’ DRM licenses, and your maps and voice guidance files are not backed up, and therefore cannot be restored back to your device. However, you can recover the DRM licenses and download your maps and voice guidance files again. For more information, see Recovering music licenses after restoration and Downloading maps.
If you receive a warning about a possibly modified backup file, it is recommended not to restore the file to your device. The file might include malicious software, and if restored to your device, it could harm the device.

If you are restoring content to the same device model as your previous one, you need to restart the device to complete the restoration. If you are restoring content to a device model different to your previous one, no restart is needed.
If you are restoring content via a Bluetooth connection, you need to reconnect your device to the computer after restarting the device.
