How to Backup and Restore Data with HTC Sync Manager

-- Wednesday, October 16, 2013
Things may usually happen like that: we deleted the important files in HTC One by accident or something wrong occurs to the OS system that acquires us to get the phone back to factory reset so as to make it run again. However, all the data stored in the HTC smartphone will be thoroughly cleared at the same time. This is pretty frustrated. So, it is quite necessary for us to back up data from HTC device to the computer regularly so that we have chance to restore the lost content.

HTC Sync Manager, developed by HTC Inc. is a free application supporting users to sync data in between HTC and computers, Android phones or iOS devices. In the following article, we will focus on its backup and restore function and introduce how to backup and restore HTC data.

Part 1 Backup HTC Data to the Computer

After you install the software, run it and plug your HTC One in the PC/Mac via USB cable. When it's successfully connected, click the "Transfer & Backup" option at the left column.

With HTC Sync Manager, you can back up data from HTC phone to computer for safe keeping and recover the important content to the mobile device in case the data got lost. However, if you want to back up data like apps, call logs, videos, etc, the software may not meet your need. Hence, we recommend you to try Phone Transfer which enables you to transfer data among mobile devices, backup, restore as well as erase data on HTC at ease.
