Tech Tips: How to restore & back up devices

Posted: Updated:

Written by Katie Caldwell

Some of the most valuable information is stored on devices. People want the security to preserve memories that are captured on phones or tablet that cannot be replaced.

There are some newer device operating systems and programs, like iCloud, that charge a small fee to back up and restore information. Other online storage providers, like Dropbox, GDrive, and Microsoft’ OneDrive are all cost free options to facilitate the transfer of files and media.

Amazon also provides customers with other options of external mobile storage devices that can accommodate almost all device connection types. These accessories connect via the charging port and allow the transfer of files from devices to this medium.

Another option is an accessory like the Meem charging cable. Unlike conventional charging cables, the Meem can perform a local backup of devices while it is charging.

Helium and CMBackup are great options for those that are seeking a restorable backup. The only differences are that CMBackups do not provide backups of applications. Helium has the unique feature of using online storage accounts like Dropbox, to save backups and source restores.

In other words, humans may be so intelligent because we gossip. “What we can say for sure with the dolphins and whales ...
