Have you ever had a phone crash and lost all of your data? Perhaps you dropped it, shattering the screen, or perhaps you just forgot to back it up.
I have excellent news for HTC One x users: backing up your phone is simple and doesn’t take too long. So let’s get started without further ado!
This article will walk you through backing up your HTC One x. There are other methods to do this, but we’ll concentrate on one that is quick and trustworthy.
Keep in mind that backing up your data is crucial if you want to ensure the security of your data in the event that anything were to happen to your phone. Having stated that, let’s begin!
The HTC One X Backup Process
There are a few different methods to backup your HTC One x if you use one of these phones.
The following are the two most popular techniques:
using a computer or a mac
The first approach involves backing up your phone using a computer. This method works and doesn’t take too long. All you have to do is adhere to the instructions:
The first step is to use a USB cord to connect your phone to your computer. Once connected, a notice on your phone should appear asking you to choose the kind of connection you want. Click “File Transfer” before pressing “OK.”
Next, launch File Explorer on your computer and search the list of devices for the name of your phone. Double-clicking it will reveal it after you’ve located it.
You should now be able to view every folder on your phone. The “DCIM” folder is the one in which we are most interested. Double-click on it to access the folder where your phone’s pictures and videos are kept.
You should now be able to see every image and video stored on your phone. As an alternative, you may decide to copy or duplicate over each one individually or all of them. Press the “Copy” button after making your choice.
The files must now be pasted into a computer folder. You may utilize an existing folder for this purpose or create a new one. Once you’ve completed that, click “Paste” to start the transfer.
Once your phone is unplugged from your computer, the transfer is finished. The pictures and movies on your phone should now be in your possession.
Using Google Drive as a second option
The second approach involves backing up your phone using Google Drive. If you don’t have a computer or prefer to save your data on the cloud, this is a fantastic alternative. It’s also important to note that this approach will backup various sorts of data, like contacts, app data, and more. You must carry out the following in order to employ this technique:
On your phone, first launch the Google Drive app. If it isn’t already installed, you can get it for free from the Play Store.
on the screen’s left side. A menu will open; choose “Settings” from the list.
Choose “Backup & reset” from the settings menu.
Select the account you wish to use for backups by tapping it under the “Backup account” column. You must first create a Google account on your phone if you don’t already have one.
Make sure the “Back up my data” option is set on after choosing an account. Additionally, by selecting the “Back up frequency” option, you may decide how often your data will be backed up.
The “Back” button will take you back to the main menu. Now, a backup of your data will occur automatically to your Google account.
The two most popular ways to backup your HTC One x are these two. As you can see, both are rather easy to do and only need a short amount of time. But there are other approaches as well.
You might, for instance, utilize a third-party program or service like Carbonite or Dropbox. As an alternative, you may use your phone’s built-in backup (if it has one). Which approach is right for you ultimately depends on you. This manual is meant to be useful, we hope!
