    I wanted to do factory reset on a P35 smartphone.
    I saved all data/apps to sd card then saved to my desktop on my laptop (win10)

    Now i cant transfer them back

    On my cell I have built in app back-up & restore insert sd card use this app, and there are no apps or data this app can find
    (they are all there because when i insert the same sd card back into the laptop and open...there they are...all APK files

    I'm not surprise you can't back them up as your PC doesn't have permissions to write to the phone. Had you backed up using Google, you should have no issues. Having said that, things like photos etc should be in your files so not all is lost

    Welcome to Android Central! Before you do something like this, you need to make sure you understand how backup/restore works. Simply saving various app data files to the SD card won't necessarily work.

    App Backup & Restore saves all your apps as .apk files. And it restores from the .apk files. That's normal. What you didn't save was the data for the apps.
