This video is a full tutorial to backup up or restoring any Android phone. We’re using the adb (Android Debug Bridge) tool which means it’s possible without needing root access.
adb is very powerful tool that allows you to create a full system backup, including app apks, their respective data, as well as the internal storage.
To start with you need to install the Android SDK on your PC and update the Android SDK Platform Tools to the latest version using the SDK Manager. Also ensure that you have working USB drivers for your phone installed.
Next you need to ensure that Developer Options is enabled on your handset and set a backup password as well as toggle USB debugging to be on.
Then you can connect your phone and use various adb commands to backup the data you require and restore any backups. We go over all the options available using “adb backup” and “adb restore”
