    What do you do before doing an update? Any backup or tips to ensure successful update?

    How to do full backup of phone? (to restore phone if update problem/lost/stuck/faulty)

    Does copy and paste all phone folders work as a backup? Before update can I copy and paste all phone files to PC, if something bad happens during a update then copy and past all phone files from PC to phone?

    What android backup software work (like those software that full backup windows pc)? No root.

    Possible to auto schedule full backup?

    Thanks

    I don't do anything special, because I keep all of my important information synced to the cloud somewhere (Google Drive, Google Photos, Google Keep, YouTube Music, etc.), and I have Google Backup turned on (which saves most app settings and a fair amount of the app data to Google Drive). If something were to go wrong and I had to do a full factory reset, it's not too hard to restore the phone.

    That's the Q&A formatting. It's an odd thing that happens on the forum, and it takes away the ability to reply. If you bring up the actual URL and delete everything at the end of the URL address after "html", then press enter, it should bring you back to the usual formatting.

    I'm not sure why they do that. It will still convert questions from registered members into that weird format sometimes. Wish they'd just get rid of it.

    Is there any guide that you would recommend me to follow, so if anything goes wrong I can 100% be able to get back everything?
