    Love love love my Sony Xperia Tablet SGPT 1211. However, I cannot get it to boot up. Stuck in loop with the purple ribbons on screen. Tried "soft reset" with no luck. After much searching it appears I should perform "hard reset". Hard to believe I have not backed up my pictures.....lots of pictures. What to do? TYIA

    Welcome to the forum

    Not much you can do. Lesson learned. Install DropBox or Google Photo and it will keep it from happening in the future.

    OK-Thanks for the quick reply. Don't know why I never worried about the docs on my tablet. Desktop is always backed up. It's used in my business and that's just part of the procedure. Guess I thought since there were no "important" things on the tablet I never worried about it. Now that they are lost, those pictures are most important. Thanks again. Do appreciate all of the information and knowledge I have found here.
