    Question Android Backup to NAS

    Has anyone done backups of your phone to a home network NAS? My contacts are on Google, but I think I would feel a bit safer if I could have some sort of backup (and a method to do a restore, if necessary). And my NAS box has a ton of room on it without incurring any further cost.

    Anyone? Help, direction & thoughts are appreciated in advance.

    Do you want to back up the contents of the phone to the NAS? I use ES File Explorer to transfer files, pics, etc. to my NAS Server.

    Essentially, yes. In the same way that I have a backup copy of my laptop contents for "God-forbid" situations, I'd like to have something similar for my phone.

    Yep, try ES File Explorer from the play store. It will find the NAS if it is connected to your home network.

    Sounds good. I'm familiar with ES File Explorer.

    Another wrinkle: without rooting the phone (I probably could but I choose not to), is there something (preferably free, but...) that I can install that will schedule a backup of my device?
