How to backup an Android device?


I have a Motorola Droid that I need to send in for repair. How can I back up everything to my PC easily?

The Moto Phone Portal expects you to individually download each photo. I would rather not transfer everything through wifi to my PC or to the cloud.

  • Photos
  • Contacts - gmail
  • App settings?
  • Playlists ?

Your contact -Gmail are already saved in GMail isn't it ?

And Photo, playlists are on the SD card, so just keep it / change it / backup it with a card reader

For app settings, some of them are on sd card, and if you use app2sd, all your apps are on the sd card

For your SMS, you can use SMS Backup + to back it up on GMail:

QR - Backup +

If you have a rooted phone, you can use Titanium Backup ★ root:

QR - Titanium Backup ★ root

Good luck!
