comment How does 4ext recovery backup works
I didn't downvote, but I might explain: your question is most likely considered "low quality". You don't give much details what you're talking about – e.g. what is "4ext recovery backup"? Without knowing that, the question cannot be answered. Backup apps are different: some work on block level, some on file level; some do full backups, some only cover parts. And depending on that, their algorithms differ as well: those working on block-level do exactly what you describe, others don't.

comment How to do screen record on android without apps?
@GiantTree A screen-recording feature was built into Android with Kitkat. So under the condition the device runs Kitkat or higher, your commend no longer holds true. See Narayanan's answer (and my comment on it) for details.

Also see: How to use screen recording in Android 4.4 KitKat for a more in-depth tutorial on this – and Is there a minimal installation of ADB? for the ADB part :)

comment Is it possible to watch Youtube videos on the Youtube App while multitasking
Two things: First, please don't use txtspeak (write full words) – many of our users are non-native English speakers and already have a hard time without slang. Second: The feature you describe IMHO is not available on all devices, but rather vendor specific – so you should at least mention the device you're using ;)

comment my apps are gone from my Samsung galaxy s3 tablet
Have you checked the app drawer (usually an icon looking like a squared collection of squares)? Another place to check: Settings › Apps. My guess is just your "homescreen display" forgot about them, but they will still show up in the two places mentioned.

comment WiFi network in range, but could not be connected!
Where you get the selection "Cancel/Forget/Connect", try "Forget". Then wait until the entry is updated, and this time chose "Connect". You should be asked for the credentials again, provide them. Does this enable you to establish a connection? If not: Any message this time? What about signal strength?

comment Does switching user accounts in Lollipop affect battery life or performance?
Good points. Basically the question behind is: What happens to running apps when switching users – do they keep running (in background), or will the "originating user's" session be "frozen"? I have no LP device to test this out myself. Is your device rooted? Do you have ADB available?

comment How to move Android folder to SD Card?
As for ADB, depending on your OS there might be either driver installs or configuration steps required. You can check with our adb tag-wiki for a starter on that. Apart from that, I'm afraid there's no way without rooting. I've heard of a way (FolderMount if I remember correctly) you could map a directory on your card to internal storage, but I've never tried that myself.

comment Android picture naming convention
I can confirm this. Having used different camera apps, file names were specific to them (and patterns different).

comment Any application to scan non-standard QR codes
Sad to hear that! Just discovered those are used e.g. by UPS. I only found several low rated reader apps explicitely mentioning them. Best rated amongst those is Barcode Helper. Not updated since 2013, though.
