We’ve all been in a situation where our devices were reset by the ‘factory reset’ option either during warranty replacement or any technical issue of our device. This has resulted in losing all the apps we had downloaded and the data that was stored. It’s always safe to have a backup of apps and their data. If you have rooted your device, there are a number of ways to backup apps and data. However, the options are limited for non-rooted users. There are two major ways through which you can backup all the apps and data saved on your device.
Backup Media Files on your PC
- Connect your device to PC with USB cable.
- Select your device on ‘My Computer.’
- Open the folder and move all the files to your PC.
All the files you move will be saved on your PC and can be restored whenever you wish to back to your device.
Backup using Google Cloud
- Go to Settings> Accounts and Sync.
- Go to your Google account and check ‘Auto-sync Data.’
- Check all the options including apps, contacts, app data, photos, etc. to sync to the cloud.
- Go to Settings> Backup and Reset.
This ensures that all your data is saved on your Google Server.
