I'm trying to Migrate from an LS, to an LS Plus

Things are not going very well.

I have created a BACKUP AND RESTORE, on the old LS, (Non Plus version)

So far, I have updated the OAF on all things I can find.
I have updated the firmware in the T-3, through the LS.
I have updated everything I can find.
Now, I go to FILES, then FULL BACKUP and RESTORE.
Then, I press RESTORE
It now says "Backup was created on another device (serial number mismatch) Only projects, tags, &Codes, Profiles, and Favorites can be restored.
At this point, it is a dead end. I cannot get it to go beyond this.
I hit OK, in blue and it goes back one step.
How do I get it to move ahead? Maybe I should just copy the files into the LS+, and build profiles and settings from Scratch?

Thank you,

OK, Ive stood on my head, and called Judge Judy. Not getting anyplace. I'm installing jobs one by one. That's working.
I reckon I should re-do all my settings. I've never used cell coms. But, I will wait till tomorrow, to get that. I just want to get moved, and running as best as I can today.
I am in the same boat. I am trying to restore my old LS to my new Plus. It seems to work, but I have no projects, tags, etc. The Action button only shows one new project,

I can Browse Files on the Plus into the SD card and see everything in the jdata folder, but I can't see where to set the path so that J-Field can see the data.

I upgraded to the pre-release on the Plus, release on the LS.

You probably have a filter active. Either the magnifying glass or the filter (looks like a funnel) will be red. Press and hold that button to clear whatever filter you have active.
No, in Action-Open Project from List has a green funnel. I cannot see any other data anywhere, unless I browse files in the files button. Everything is there on the SD card under jdata folder, but J-Field is not seeing it.
I created a new project and see that it is created in internal memory.

Is there some way to switch focus to the SD card? I can't find how I did it long ago.

On the SD card, J-Field can store only additional resources like raw GNSS files. And the structure of the SD card is similar to the structure of projects on the internal memory. So I think on your SD card you can see not projects but only their files.
Did you do a full backup or did you archive projects. What are your steps of moving data from one device to another?
Oh, Thanks Michael.

All these years I thought the data was stored on the SD card. Usually I just archive several projects at a time. This time I did a Full Backup and had Internal Memory unchecked. All is well now that I backed up and restored the Internal.
