Weird...
Been using this for over a year.
Went to do my regular backup since I was going to connect to iTunes, and I get this error message:

But then selecting the Yes button above, get this:

Clearly showing previous backup data....
WTH?
Didn't want to select one of the old ones to backup to (say the 2011-07-14 @ 12:58:06) if one part of the app says there are no backups, but another is.

Ahh, u take such good care of us Europa!
Am I tripping, or does it seem PKGBackup is corrupt?
I prefer to backup before connecting to iTunes, in case I get a JB crash/lockup.
Should I just try reinstalling through Cydia?

Not using dropbox....
I thought the latest incarnation(s) of PKGBackup no longer backed up to contacts.
When I first started using it 18 months ago, it would generate a new contact link.
The past 8 months, just tells me to connect to iTunes to save the backup, IIRC.

The current version still offers the option to backup either to addressbook or dropbox. Having experienced problems with corrupted addressbook data in the past, I switched to dropbox and have had no troubles backing up or restoring. I recommend using dropbox.

I'm lost.
Tried as Europa suggested.
Even reinstalled dropbox and switched that on in PKGBackup, no luck.
No matter what I do, app is not seeing Cydia packages.
Here's a few screenies of the "available backups" page, accessed through the prompt saying there is no backup data:


Clearly showing 2 backups with multiple dates....

Was gonna slam u for calling me snowy, but saw I didn't get flightmedic's userid right above either, so everyone gets a pass, once;-)
Worked like a charm.
I actually thought of that, noticed it seemed to be scanning on startup already, even tho it was not checked in the settings.....
