    Hello all,

    I currently have my HTC Evo on back order so I'm anxiously awaiting for it to arrive. While waiting I've been wondering, is there any known and GOOD Andriod backup/sync programs for a PC to backup and restore the OS, apps, and synced data??

    The reason I ask is that in my years working in the IT field, I've had to setup and do backup/restores for customers who own iPhones and having iTunes backup their entire OS and sync the data on their phones was a lifesaver! This will be my first ever smartphone, in fact only my 3rd cell phone ever as I'm upgrading from a RAZR V3xx.

    Thanks everyone!

    Some of that stuff is already saved with your login (I'm not sure what though).
    There are also plenty of apps that will back up everything online. I've been using Lookout, but there is also MyBackup Pro and others.

    If you are looking for something to sync to iTunes, there is DoubleTwist or iSyncr

    I'm definitely not looking to sync to itunes because I don't use that program or have an iPhone. I'm just looking for a PC app for android that does what iTunes does for the iPhone.

    I'd really like to have things setup to where I plug the HTC Evo in to a cradle or it's usb cable, a program on that same PC then would do a full OS/app/data backup of the HTC Evo. Then if by chance I were to have to replace it, I plug a brand new, empty ETC Evo into the same PC, that I could do a full restore & sync of the backup on the PC.

    For those of us in rural areas where we have spotty 2G cell service at best and our "high speed" DSL is 1mb or less, backing up online isn't the most appealing thing.

    MyBackup Pro will backup to your microsdcard. It is known to be the best backup program for Android. I haven't found a program that transfers directly to the computer for everything you want, yet. At least with MyBackup Pro, you could copy the information from the SD card to the computer. Click on the link from Superflush above to check it out.

    Is this any different from connecting the phone to the computer and simply dragging all the files from the card as a backup (I connect to sync to Outlook, so it's no big deal that way)
