    How are you backing up your phone? I'm still not comfortable with my approach and always have that subtle yet slightly uncomfortable feeling that I'm going to lose the phone, accidentally delete, or forget to copy a file for safekeeping.

    So, with the above in mind I see four main strategies. I purposely left the details for each strategy undefined as an opportunity to open up the AC community views on what you think may fall under each category.

    Backup From:
    1. Internal SD Card

    2. External SD Card

    Backup To:
    1. Cloud

    2. Local Computer

    3. Hybrid

    4. None

    If we're talking about ROM backups, I keep the last two backups from Rom Manager on the device, along with a clean install which is redundantly kept on Google Drive. I've never tried downloading direct from Drive to phone phone though, so not sure if that's effective or not.

    For apps/data/etc. I use the standard cloud sync services and use helium approximately once a week and store that file in Google Drive.

    Photos, etc get backed up straight to G+ so I don't mess with that.

    Ah, I forgot all about recovery backups. I have a similar strategy where backups go to the External SD card. This helped to highlight that a From and To is needed to further shape the strategy categories. Edited the OP by adding in that distinction.

    Nice, I can see these and what NothingIsTrue shared falling into the categories.

    Sounds like a Nandroid for the one file and then everything else via cloud?
