When I tried backing up my Xperia S, the default Backup & Restore would backup only system apps.

It says "Could not back up" for "Media files" and for "Downloaded apps with data".

You do not need to back up media files or app data. They are in device's internal storage. If you are performing a factory reset these datas wont be erased unless you select Erase Internal Storage when performing a factory reset.

If you still need to backup the media files or app data, connect your Xperia S to a PC and backup the files in the PC.
