Nowadays, mobile phone becomes as necessary as "air" for modern people. They use portable devices to store important data like contacts, message, schedules, photos, notes, etc. However, in these years, I often receive some emails, sent by users, complaining that they accidentally deleted or lost significant data from their Samsung Galaxy. Worse yet, they were not able to get back the lost data, because they didn't back up phone data regularly.
The purpose of writing this article is to show you how to back up and restore data from Galaxy devices with Samsung Kies, a data manager program for Samsung devices.
Part 1 Backup and Restore Data with Samsung Kies
Section 1 Backup Phone Data
Step 1 Connect Devices to PC and Select "Backup & Restore"
Plug your Samsung Galaxy in the computer via USB cable. Once successfully connected, choose "Backup & Restore" option and click "Data backup". Kies divides phone data into two categories: Personal information (contacts, memo, planner, call log and message) and Content (video, music and photo).
Step 2 Start Backing Up
You can selectively choose those data you need, but I suggest you to tick all the data. When finishing selection, hit the "Backup" button at the top-right corner and start backup process. After a while, press the "Complete" button to end the process. You can directly check the media files backup like music, videos and photos on your computer. But for call log and messages backup, you need to install some specific software to read them.
