Backup is a useful function to save your valuable data (like contacts, SMS messages, organizer, files, etc) from your mobile phone and SIM card. If you lose your phone, you still have your data safely stored in MOBILedit
This feature allows you to create a complete image of a connected
phone or other device. These images are being stored in the "Backups"
folder. Backups may be browsed.
It is wise to create backups as often as possible, ideally before every large edit. Data loss, however improbable, would be most annoying.
You can even make a backup of an offline device. Its image will be moved from the Offline Devices folder to the Backups
folder. By doing so, you can preserve the data from being rewritten
upon the next connection of the original device. You can use this image
to restore the original device afterwards. Of course, only the data
present in the offline image can be backed up, which means that not all
of the phone content would be necessarily saved.
You don't have to own a licence to make backups. Backups may be made within the Lite version! You need to purchase a licence, however, to restore the data.
Making a backup is a very simple process. There are three basic ways of initiating a backup process of a device:
Phone view: Select a device and then just click on the Backup button in the phone view.
|Device: Select the device in the Device Tree and then select the Backup item in the Device menu.|
