Steps to backing up your Android
The steps are as follows (keeping in mind that all Androids are different and may operate and function differently from computer to computer):
- Connect your Android device to your computer (Windows or Mac should both work) via the USB cable.
- On your Android, pull down the main menu (swipe down from the top of the screen) and select “USB connection.”
- On the next page, choose USB Mass Storage and hit OK.
- You’ll see a new drive or “Removable Disk” appear on your computer for the phone/SD Card. Open it/them up, and copy all the files inside to a new location on your computer.
