    hi all,
    happy new year

    Whenever I want to take a backup of phone data on my pc, I get an error
    message at the end of the transfer session, and it says - "Failed to
    copy the following data -

    contacts-

    C:\system\Data\Contacts.cdb ."
    Everything else (including images, sound clippings, messages etc were
    stored and could be recovered later, when needed) What does this error
    message mean? Is there a part of data that hasn't been stored or is
    there another transfer error? I had to format my cell a few days back
    and when I tried to transfer the data backup from my pc to the phone, I
    found that the whole contact list was empty and I had to build my
    contacts list from the scratch!!
    I've been using Nokia 6681 since 6 months and have been facing this
    problem. How can I ensure that everything is copied to and from my cell
    phone?
    Please help.

    I would guess the C:\system\Data\Contacts.cdb file is badly corrupted, you
    could try to rename the file and retrieve the contacts and see if it works.

    File corruption is a common thing on VFAT and NTFS file systems, specially on
    the first one.

    I missed this detail first pass. Is the filename shown exactly as you wrote
    above and this is on the 'phone? If so then the space after the .cdb . then
    the last period is what's screwing things up. If you can rename the file to
    erase the " ." at the end then you may be able to copy off the file.
