My Galaxy S7 has developed a problem with it battery (where it is continually turning off / rebooting) and so I need to get it repaired/replaced by my insurer.
The only issue is that, for data protection, they wipe every device before repairing.
Although I have back ups of most of my apps, all my photos, contacts & sms messages I have a lot of settings, multiple non-web based email accounts etc. set up on the phone so having to start from stratch would be a real hassle.
I therefore want to back up the entire phone, like a drive image, onto my Macbook so that I can simply copy the backup onto my new/repaired device once the battery issue is sorted.
I thought I had found a solution in this thread: Full Backup of non-rooted devices
However that is nearly 5 years old and so the instructions do not match the current version of Android SDK, seemingly now called Android Studio (the previous instructions ask you to locate a folder called 'platform-tools' but this isn't created by the current version of the SDK).
Anyone know of any updated instructions on how to do this?
