Owners of the LG Stylo 6 should update their smartphones as soon as possible. Before installing an update, it is suggested that you conduct a factory reset. You can backup the LG Stylo 6’s system to avoid losing any crucial files. Making such a backup copy will also come in handy when switching to a new device.
What exactly is a backup?
Backup is a file that merges some partitions of data stored on the LG Stylo 6. Backup, or simply backup, is a much more convenient method of backing up data than manual copying because it does not require moving files one by one.
A full backup includes:
- A contact list
- History of messages
- Account settings
As a result, you can back up your entire device. The user will eventually be able to restore the copy to any smartphone, including the LG Stylo 6.
Ways for Creating a Backup on the LG Stylo 6
LG Stylo 6 is a multipurpose device with many available ways to create a backup. All that is required of the user is to choose one of the suggested options and follow the on-screen directions.
A Local Copies
The LG Stylo 6 enables the creation of backups without the use of third-party services. You can use this method to build a backup and save it to the device’s memory. You must do the following:
- Open the settings.
- Go to the “About the device” section and then to “Backup and Restore.”
- Select “Mobile device” from the drop-down menu.
- Mark the data that is required, such as apps, media, and contacts.
- Click “Create a backup.”
Then the automatic process of creating a backup will begin. The generated file must be relocated to another device where it will be restored. If a backup is taken before resetting the settings, it should be transferred temporarily (for example, to a computer) and then restored to the LG Stylo 6.
Making a backup copy takes time. The time of the process is determined by the number of files copied. The greater the amount of information, the longer the operation may take. The process takes about 10-20 minutes on average.
The system option is the simplest way to create a comprehensive backup of your LG Stylo 6. You can use it to create and upload backups to Google Drive.
Follow these steps to carry out the operation:
- Navigate to the phone’s settings.
- Navigate to the “Google” section, then to “Back up.”
- Slide the “Upload to Google Drive” slider to the on position.
The automatic backup function will be enabled after you complete these simple steps. It requires an Internet connection to function. If the user decides to reset the settings, the data is no longer destroyed and is instead stored to Google Drive.
When using the built-in copy technique, keep in mind that there is limited space on Google Drive. There are only 15 gigabytes available for free. If this amount of storage is insufficient, you will need to subscribe or find another solution.
Third Party Applications
Limitations caused by insufficient storage space on Google Drive may cause the user to seek alternative solutions. The Titanium Backup application is an excellent choice. However, it is necessary for the owner of the LG Stylo 6 to obtain root access.
If the conditions are met, proceed as follows:
- Launch the app and grant the necessary permissions.
- In the “Back up” tab, click the button to create a backup.
- Mark the files that will be copied and confirm the operation.
The backup will be saved in the application’s root folder. In the future, the file should be transferred to the phone chosen for copy recovery or to another device while the settings are reset.
How Do You Restore a Backup?
The process of restoring a backup is dependent on the backup method used by the device owner. If the copy was made using Google Drive, you must authorise it and enable automatic synchronisation with cloud storage in the device settings.
If a local copy of the backup was made, the file must be placed in the LG Stylo 6 directory. Then, in the “Backup and Restore” section, open the settings and click the “Restore backup” button.
Users who created a backup using a special application (Titanium Backup) must transfer the backup to the phone’s internal memory and install the app. Then, launch Titanium Backup and select one of the saved backups from the “Backups” section.
