    I need to do a reset but want to b sure my data was backed up to my google acct. I've looked but don't find anything, are they hidden files or what? How do i find out if data was backed up?

    Or read Backing up an Android Phone to back up just about everything - texts, pictures, etc. ("Just about" because I may have forgotten something. If anyone tells me that I have, I'll add a way to back that up too.)

    Welcome to Android Central! Moved this thread to the General Help forum, since the original forum it was posted in doesn't accept replies.

    The data that is backed up to Google is variable, and it can be difficult to know what is actually backed up. See here: https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/2819582?hl=en.

    If you want to make sure everything is backed up, try Helium.
