How to Backup and Restore Data by Samsung Kies

Recently, I bought a Samsung phone, Galaxy S5. As a long time Android user, I get used to do a backup file first when I have a brand new handset. Because such a file will always help to restore the device when I meet some unexpected problems, of which careless deletion is an example. There are in all two tools I'd like to share with you. Both are easy to use and of their own features—the first one being Samsung Kies and the second one Mobile Transfer. 

Tutorial 1: Backup and Restore Data with Samsung Kies

Store Files in PC

Samsung Kies is a Phone Suite for Samsung devices, with which you can manage files, do your backup and restore the phone. The software is available at the Samsung website. You may choose between Kies and Kies 3.

Step 1.Download and Launch Samsung Kies
Now, you may click the hyperlink to have the application downloaded. And then set it up. When that is done, double click the icon and the newly-opened window will be like this.

Back up and Recover Samsung Phone

Connect the phone to PC with a USB cable. (The example we take here is an old Galaxy S3.) It won't cost you long before the software detects your Samsung. Next, a pop-up box may tell you to update the firmware. Press "Cancel” and the information will be shown on your screen.

Step 2.Choose the Samsung Data that are to be Saved
See the categories under the name of "GT-I9300”? These are the ones which you can store in you computer. You can preview contacts, music, photos, videos that exist in your phone. Take "Contacts” for example, specific information can be ticked. Tap "Save to PC” and finally, confirm it by pressing "OK”.

Recover Samsung Data

Step 1.Select the Recoverable File Types
Beneath "Library”, there are several kinds of data, including contacts, audios and so on. Now, press whichever that you want to retrieve. For instance, if you would like to do contacts, the interface will tell you to open a file which you have ever saved as a backup. Press the button in the middle.

Choose the file folder and then open that document.

Step 2.Recover Information from Library
Check the ones that you prefer or simply all and "Transfer to device”. On the pop-up box, you may take one of the options—"Transfer all contacts” and "Transfer selected contacts”. After you click "OK”, another box will show up asking you to select the account on your phone that the numbers are imported to.

Note: If this is the first time you use this app to restore the phone, you should open a backup file. And if not, the ones will be listed in the "Recently save contact file”.

Tutorial 2: Perform a Backup and Undelect Samsung Files

First, you should download this tool, Mobile Transfer. It is an excellent tool that can be used for file transferring, backing up phones of various brands and recovering them

Back up with Galaxy Phone

When you see this window, tap the light blue section, "Back Up Your Phone”in the lower right corner.

Backup and Restore Your Samsung Device

Step 2.Plug Samsung Phone in and Begin to Save Data
The process bar will tell you how it is going when the device is connected. In the middle, you are allowed to choose from "Contacts”, "Text Messages”, "Call Logs”, "Apps”, "Photos”, "Music” and "Videos”. The ones that you think are important should be selected. When that is done, "Start Copy”. At the end, press "OK”.

Save Samsung Files and Retrieve Them

Perform a Backup of Samsung Galaxy

Note: Compared with the first program, this one can do it with SMS, call logs and apps.

Retrieve Data from Samsung Galaxy

Step 1.Choose "Restore From Backups”
When your mouse is on the icon, there will be six options, which are "MobileTrans”, "iTunes”, "iTunesMusic”, "Kies” and so forth. That is to say, you can utilize the files created by other software, even Samsung Kies. We may tap "MobileTrans” here.

Step 2.Take One of the Samsung Backup Files
On the left, your documents will be listed. Check one of them. (You can use the most updated one according to the time under the names.) And then, file types are still to be chosen. But, only the ones that you have saved are operable.

Retrieve Deleted Data from Samsung

Step 3.Get Started to Transfer Files
Press the button "Start Copy” and all is easily finished. You can tick "Clear data before copy” if in need.

Our tutorials end here. Both, as I have said, are easy. Yet, I prefer the second because it is more user-friendly and offers more file types. Anyway, choose the one that suits you most. Good day!
