    Default how to keep my directories after a factory reset?

    Hello,
    I have put all my apps into directories and I would like to know of some way to avoid recreating all my directories and move again all my apps in them when I do a factory reset. Is there any application that would save this "in the cloud" ? If not, can you tell me on which files this information is stored in android please ?
    Thanks for your help,
    Julien

    Welcome to the forums!

    I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. Are you saying that you created folders on the various Home screens and dragged your apps into those folders?

    Or have you done this in the App Drawer itself?

    Or have you physically moved the .apk files into directories?

    Hi,
    Thanks for your answer.
    I meant the first option : "created folders on the various Home screens and dragged your apps into those folders".
    Hope this helps addressing my issue.
    Regards,

    Are you using the stock launcher or a 3rd party launcher (ex. Nova, Action, etc)?

    If the former you can use the Kies software on your computer to backup your information (contacts, SMS/MMS, pictures/videos, etc) along with some TouchWiz settings (which I believe include your Home screen setup).
