    Hi All,

    I've S3, I was able to connect my phone with kies 3, I took backup and all, but few weeks ago it stopped connecting to it, the message I'm getting is as below

    Failed to connect the device

    Connection or use may be restricted if device access (including writing) is prohibited by your computer's security program, or any other reason.

    ,pls see image below:--

    can't connect with kies3 my samsung s3-ss.gif

    Actually I was creating guest accounts and users on my windows 7 pc and given access to certain folders ,may be that is causing this issue, though I'm not sure.

    Now the problem is I need to get data back to my phone from PC, the data is available as a backup in my kies 3. but now since I'm not able to connect I can't take data back such as contacts etc and I wiped out my phone due to hanging issue.

    Pls help me to solve this issue.

    My android version is 4.3

    Welcome to the forums!

    This may be the problem; are you still logging in as the same user as before?

    If you can find the Kies backup file you can copy that somewhere else and then uninstall/reinstall Kies (it should ask you if you want to install it for all users - answer yes), then copy the backup file back where it belongs.
