I wanted to back up everything on my phone: call logs, messages, whatsapp texts, photos, videos, screenshots, screen video captures, recordings, app data... and everything else, before selling my phone. So, basically, data-wise, I wan't to create a clone of the (entire) current state of my phone. I don't necessarily wan't to restore all of it on my new phone, but I want to be able to access the stuff that I backed-up on my computer later, when needed...I saw a few answers on this site, but they don't answer my questions fully.
- Is the command line
adb backup -apk -shared -all -f <filename>well-suited to my purpose?
- My phone has
32Gcapacity, but the backup file generated is only
5.3G. How do I know that the backup completed properly and contains all the data I wanted?
- Are there ways to do the backup over a network (
ADB, instead of having to depend on the USB debugging mode.
