Can't restore iphone6 from backup - not enough storage

Views: 880 Replies: 5
Hi all,

I've lost some messages on my iPhone somehow and am trying to restore from back up, which I did a week ago and encrypted for the first time.

When I click restore from back up and enter all relevant passwords I get 'restore in progress' on the phone, but then after a minute or so this comes up:

'Cannot restore backup for Gemiphone not enough space on phone"

Which is rubbish as there's plenty of space on my phone.

Anyone had this? know any way to get around it, sadly don't have another back up that's recent

Any advice appreciated, or decent apps that recover texts might be good too.

thanks

Thanks buddy...

It actually started the restore once I turned off the passcode randomly.. but now it's pretty much died. Restore took place and now just a black screen.

I try force start and get the apple logo..

i think i've killed it

Unless your hardware is defective the phone should not die. It can be restored.

If your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch won't turn on - Apple Support
