    This is kinda related to an earlier post but I picked up my replacement Note 7 this week. All of my settings/items in the secure folder are gone. Any way to back up this. I love the phone but I do not have a warm and fuzzy at all about retaining information/settings if and when I have to go to another phone.

    There is not a way to seperately "back up" the secure folder to restore in-place on the new phone.

    BUT, when you go into secure folder to uninstall it, it should give you an option to backup and uninstall; which basically moves everything from secure folder back to personal space on the internal SD card. You should then be able to migrate that information to the new phone and from there set up Secure Folder again.

    So, if we did nothing other than Smart Switch when migrating data over to the replacement N7, then Secure Folder was NOT part of that? I only had a few things in Secure Folder so no great loss but wish I would have thought of that before wiping the old N7.
