    Hi there,

    Just wondering for all you Samsung phone users out there, what's the best way to make sure your ENTIRE phone is backed up and is always ready in case you smash your screen/phone and make recovery difficult.

    Is Google Drive (I think it's called Google One) now the best way to ensure contacts, samsung notes, photos are all backed up every day? Is Samsung Cloud pointless?

    And how do you make sure that if you delete some photos on your phone, it would not also be deleted in the Cloud, say in Google Drive? I've read that some users experienced deleting their photos in their phones only to find out that it also has been deleted in the Cloud.

    I use the following:
    Google back up which is google drive
    Samsung cloud
    Smart switch
    Sign into my Samsung account in case I get lock out or need to erase data to remotely gain access
    Turn on google photos to sync my pictures and videos.

    I've been using TWRP since about 2013. One shot and all of user space is backed up. Then copy the backup to a PC or the cloud.

    Thanks. What's your current 'setup'? What do you back up in Samsung that you can't in Google? Also, how can you configure photo backups so that whenever you delete stuff from your phone, it wouldn't be deleted in the Cloud as well?
