How to recover SMS from backup?

Hey! I've had my HTC desire for 2 months now and still on 2.1. I had to do a hard restart today (I had lots of forced closes that weren't stopping) and when I started up the phone, I could not recover my SMSs. Weird thing is it backed up my MMSs (but I could not view these on my phone for some reason; I could only see them when I downloaded a backup program and viewed them on my computer), but my SMSs seem to be gone??? This is the second time I've had to do a hard restart; the first time, about a month ago, restored everything properly, including my SMSs.Is there a way to get my SMSs back in general? Thanks!! :cool:

PS see the pics for what I'm talking about...
