What to back up?
Select the Backup option from the homepage. A menu will now appear with the various elements of your phone that you can choose to back up. Select as many or as little as you like before pressing OK.
You’ll have several options available when it comes to selecting a destination for your files. If your phone has a micro SD card, then choose that, or a cloud storage account if you prefer using them.
If you choose to save to a cloud storage account, you’ll now need to enable the correct setting from your Google Drive account. Just follow the onscreen instructions to complete this part of the backup.
Select a directory
If you instead decide to back up to your SD card, you’ll need to select a directory to back up to. Make sure it’s memorable, as you’ll need the details when you restore your files after the update.
All the files and folders you selected will now begin backing up. Depending on the quantity of files you chose to back up, this process can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.
After the update
Once the update has hit your phone, you’re going to want to head to the Restore section of the app. From here you can go to the place where the backup is saved and restore all your files and folders.
