There are many Android users who like to test new ROMs on their device and change their ROMs very frequently. While flashing a new ROM, a factory reset has to be performed which will erase all the apps and accounts from the Android device. Thus it becomes absolutely essential that the data is properly backed up. Super Backup is an excellent app which is helpful for the same purpose.
There are plenty of apps to backup data on Android like Titanium Backup. So one might ask, why should Super Backup be used?
The answer to this is very simple. Although Titanium Backup is a wonderful app, it’s pro version i.e. the paid version of the app is required for batch restoration of apps. Super Backup provides this functionality for free. A paid version of Super Backup is available on the Google Play Store. But it is same as the free version, except there no ads in it.
Features of Super Backup are :
- Backup apps to SD card
- Backup & restore app’s data (needs root)
- Batch restore apps from SD card (needs root)
- Backup Contacts, SMS, Call logs, Bookmarks & Calendars to SD card
- Restore Contacts, SMS, Call logs, Bookmarks & Calendars to SD card
- Select SMS conversations to backup
- Delete the backup data on SD card
- Schedule automatic backups
- Auto upload scheduled backup files to the Gmail account
- Show last backup count & time
- User can change backup folder path in Settings
It should be kept in mind that if the Android device has an internal storage then the backups will be stored in internal storage. So these backups will be deleted on factory reset. Do remember to move the backed up data to the SD card before performing a factory reset.
