Actually, lots of people must have had these awkward problems: your Android phone or tablet is lagging, sometimes freeze, and even worse, it stuck on a black or white screen. Or you may just forget your phone's passwords. But you can solve them by resetting the Android phone/tablet.
There are many ways to factory reset the phone/tablet. But before doing factory resetting, we should know what factory resetting is. To factory reset an Android or to hard reset is to erase all of the user’s data on the phone. Everything including photos, Apps, accounts, and files will be deleted and return to its original state.
So you should always remember to keep a backup of your data.
Here we recommend a professional tool named Android Data Backup&Restore to back up your data. Now follow the steps:
Step 1: Launch the Android Data Backup&Restore on your computer.
Step 2: Allow USB debugging
Enable USB debugging on your phone/tablet. Follow the steps showed in the pictures to allow USB debugging.Make sure your phone is rooted or it will not work fluently.
Step 3: Back up your data to the PC
Then the program began to scan your files on the phone. Wait till the main window shows the lists of your files. Check the files that you want in the boxes beside each item.
Click Start button and select a Backup Folder, then the data you want will be stored on your PC.
Actually, it depends on your requirements as well as the state of your phone. Choose a suitable way to solve your problem.
