I just did a factory reset on my Android phone (LG G4). I skipped the "Restore apps" menu during the initial setup. I can't find this menu item anywhere on my phone. Is it still possible to restore apps after I left initial setup screen?

Have you tried this solution?

  1. From any home screen, tap Apps.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. If using Tab view, tap Menu > List view.
  4. Scroll to DEVICE and then tap Backup & reset.
  5. Under LG BACKUP, tap Restore from backup.
  6. Locate and tap the backup.
  7. Tap Start to begin the restore. This may take several minutes.
  8. After the restore completes, tap Done.
  9. The phone reboots to complete the restore.


  • It lists "Google Drive" as a backup storage but it found no backups.

  • Where the backup was stored? SD card or GDrive? It allows you to restore from different sources except gdrive?

  • I did not back up anything manually. The initial setup screen gives you the option to restore apps. I skipped this process and this is what I'd like to run now.

  • Are you sure that a backup was made? By the way, it may be possible that you can perform the app restore only during the initial configuration, like in iOS when using Move to iOS.
