no there was no backup.

the problem is I didn't realise there was a problem till I tried to update my tab and it would not allow it in kies.

now I have tried everything to repair but nothing is working.

in the efs folder there is no .nv_data files so I assume I have a big problem.

in your efs folder are there nv_data.bak & .nv_data.bak.md5 ?
