    i know that its risky.. i'll bettr take ur advice and take it to priority center...
    during flashing complete mem is erased.. i know that phonebook and calender entries can be backup'd but what abt messages, i mean sms'es.. and is there nyway to backup the registry so that the licensed softwares which are on my sd card don't ask for reinstallation after flashing...

    Select data tranfer when u connect thru data cable.Then in My Computer>Tools>Folder Otions>View>Show Hidden Files.U will see ur Sytem Folder in Removable Drive(E:\System of ur fone).Or use Card Reader

    For c:\System,select Pc-Suite instead of data transfer,then Pc-Suite>File manager with show hidden files checked.Hvnt tried this one.
