How To Save Data On Android Smartphone
It is equally important to back up your Android phone/tablet data, just as you back up it on your PC. As people use smartphones for a number of personal and official purposes, the Android devices are today secure vaults storing both confidential, personal, and regular information. Then there are your cherished photos and videos, memoirs that may be very dear and priceless to you.
Thankfully, all android smartphones have the Android backup service, and you can easily backup whatever you want, through a few taps. You need to use your Google account for the purpose. You can create one (free of cost!) at Google.
Sync and Upload Whatever You Like
Tap on the settings icon, and scroll to find the “Backup and reset” function. Enable the “backup’ option in your Google account, after choosing one (you can store the data to multiple accounts as well). Also, enable the “Automatic restore” option, so that your App settings are backed up as well.
Next, go to the “Accounts” section in the “Settings” menu. Here you will get to know whatever is being backed up on the Google servers. You will find that Gmail, Drive, Contacts and Calender data has been backed up.
Backing Up the Photos
You can back up all your click (via the phone) and downloaded photos, through the Google photos App. Enable the “ Backup videos and photos” feature on the phone, so that they are automatically uploaded. Else, log into your Google account, tap on the Settings icon, and then enable the “Backup and Sync” feature by turning on the slider. The slider icon will light up once it is enabled.
There is no limit to what amount of photos you can store on your Google account. The default setting syncs the data over Wi-Fi, but you can use your mobile data for the purpose as well (be informed of the data used!). The photos can also be shared, and you can also download the photos on any other device, by using your account.
Drop Box, and One Drive are some other online cloud services that you can use to store your data, photos, and videos.
How To Recover Data When Your Smart Phone Is Lost/Away
Just log into your Google account using any other device (PC or mobile). You will be able to access all the data that you stored on the Android device, easily and securely.
Storing The Data On The Micro SD Card
You can also backup the data on the phone’s SD card. Obviously, the bigger capacity, it has, the more data it can store. Here you can store music, images, videos, SMS, contact info, Apps and even call logs! This way you can also have a local copy of everything you need. Just upload the SD card on any other device, and your data is available on it.
So How To Store Data On The SD Card
For storing the data on the SD card, you need to download, run, and install the “Syncios” mobile phone manager App on your PC. The Android-to-PC data transfer app works well on Windows (Vista/7/8/10). Once you connect the android device to PC (use a USB), the App will get installed on the android tablet/ smart phone automatically.
Run The Syncios App On The Android Device
Tap on the Syncios App icon, on your device. The “Feature” page will get open. It will have the “Sync PC” icon, which will enable you to backup all your photos, contacts and other stuff on the PC.
You will get access to the “Tools” module when you slide the screen of the Android device to its right. It will have the “New Backup” feature (apart from other features including Manage, Schedule, Restore and Sync).
Backup The Data To The SD Card
Now tick one, few or all the checkboxes, on items like bookmarks, SMS, audio, etc. (choose whatever you want to be backed up).
Tap on the ‘Backup to” icon, to find the “SD card” tab. Press on it, so that all the data that you choose gets transferred to your SD card.
Backing Up The Apps
You will not be able to back up the Apps through your phone. For that to happen, connect the device to the PC, and run the Syncios App on the computer. Now click on Back up >My Device, and then on the “select Apps” feature. The Apps on the phone will get stored on the PC, after a brief moment of time.
Hence, you can store all your data and other stuff, both locally and on the cloud, easily securely and in a few minutes.
