Traditional SMS Backup Techniques


Each model of mobile device has some utility for SMS backup to PC. These utilities differ from each other, complicating using a couple of devices simultaneously. The unified backup solution is quite preferable for backup messages.

Some brilliant backup utilities for Android, like Titanium Backup, will require the root privileges for proper using. Accessing the root privileges is a sort of device “jail-breaking”, which causes the warranty loss and sometimes can be viewed as illegal activity, too.


Advantages of Handy Backup

Handy Backup views any phone or smartphone device as the external USB drive, requiring no interchanges or extra options for a phone. All the user need is to connect phone to PC via the USB cable, and to set up the SMS backup or restore task for automating data transfer.

Using Handy Backup, you can store copies of your SMS content not only on your PC, but also on some online services, from FTP servers to NAS storages to popular commercial clouds such as Dropbox, Amazon S3 or Azure. You can also quickly encrypt and compress your data if you need.

Choose phone as the drive

  1. Choose files and folders containing SMS data by marking the checkboxes near the name of each file or folder. For most phones, the name for phonebook is obvious.

  4. On the Step 6 to schedule backup choose the option allowing automatic execution for your task each time you connect your phone and the computer via the USB.

Starting backup when USB drive plugged

Note: The exact USB connection port you are using has no importance. Handy Backup “remembers” the device you will plug and start the task linked to this device. Learn more about auto backup to external hard drive.
