Try HTC Transfer Tool in the Play Store to transfer most of your stuff to the One when you get it.

For apps and data check out "Carbon - App Sync and Backup"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.backup

If your contacts and calendar are on Google, no need to transfer that, or you'll end up with duplication, one set on your phone, the other with Google.

What was your previous phone? You can do a few things. If it is an Android Phone you can download the HTC Transfer Tool from the Play Store and transfer the photos and videos wirelessly. Or you can transfer the photos and videos to your Computer and then plug the One into your Computer and drag and drop them into the One's DCIM folder. There are a handful of other ways to get them over as well.

Someone in the HTC Transfer Tool comments on the Play store specifically mentions that it works well on the Galaxy 2.

You could do that but depending on the file sizes it could take twice as long (upload and download vs just transferring).

Or, you've got 23gb of storage there in Dropbox free for two years so just leave those items there and import them to the phone on demand /as needed..

Here's the down and dirty way to share files, phone to phone, at home.

Check out "My FTP Server"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.droidcreation.myftpserver

Use that on one phone, EStrongs File Explorer on the other.

The ftp server will tell you the setup for your PC connection. Here's the EStrongs equivalent, just match the numbers, name and password to the server -

uploadfromtaptalk1366853995566.jpg

Surf to the other phone, and you can grab whole folders - long press and choose Copy-to, follow the prompts.

It's not pretty and it's a bit geeky.

But it never fails.

You can spend a few bucks to make it slicker but my way is free.

[having to do a factory reset after copying some of my data over to my computer], I was able to copy the data content of the phone to my hdd.
Is it possible to copy a folder back and recover all of my contacts. Txt messages call history etc? If so which folder?

Thank you.

if you did not use a 3rd party app to backup your text messages, there is no way to recover those.

as for your contacts, just use your gmail account to "sign back in" to your account on the google server, and your contacts and apps will begin to re install.

if you want to transfer files from your computer hdd, then follow whats in this thread as there are several ways to do so.

google only saves contacts, apps. it will nor save text messages or photos. those things should be backed up using your free dropbox storage or any other cloud based storage solutions.

It never saved anything. Not even contacts.
I backed up all the data in the HTC. Is there anyway to send the file back to the htc? Overwrite the current one?

next time use google servers and not htc.

htc uses dropbox, so if you have not done so, set up your dropbox account. this is all in your operators manual thats on the phone...

I'm aware of this. And I've activated it already. Doesn't help me after the fact.
I'm certain the data is in the drive dump. I'm uncertain if it can be recovered.

I'm asking for help on recovering contacts from the data. Please stop telling what I did wrong.

Does your dump include /data/data? If so, messages and call logs are in /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony in a couple of sqlite database files (mmssms.db and telephony.db. There are also a couple of journal files). Similarly /data/data/com.android.providers.contacts/contacts2.db will be your contacts, not 100% sure what "profile.db" in the same directory is.

So, those are the data. To make use of this info you'll need to be rooted, because you won't be able to copy them back into place otherwise. But if you weren't rooted you probably wouldn't be able to copy these folders in the first place (you could do it with adb, but MTP isn't going to let you at this part of the phone's storage). How did you do the backup?

Best is to have a look and see whether you have those files, and then we'll know whether there's anything to recover.

Default can't drag and drop music?

So I wanted to add some music to my htc one, Figured I could just drag and drop it in. But then the sync manage comes up and I click on it and apparently my software isn't up to date enough to use it cause my computer is older. Is there no other way to add music unless you sync it?
thanks

hi,

this thread will help you get to the right direction. music/video files are treated the same--you want to move them from one place (your computer) to the phone.

this thread may also help if you are having issues:

USB Mass Storage help (issues connecting with devices? )

I'm coming from the Bionic(hopefully tomorrow) and pretty much everything I care about, (Texts, email and contacts) are all in Google cloud / Google Voice.

Other than the above 3, already in Google, I'm find with starting fresh with a completely cleanly wiped out HTC-One. So, is there anything else I need to make sure I move forward from my Bionic??

I don't care about:
* pictures, movies, etc.
* any already installed apps, I'd actually rather reinstall just the apps I actually use at this point.
* Can't think of any other data actually on the phone I should care about??

Anything else I'm not thinking of??

I transferred everything and I mean everything from my HTC Desire S to my One using the HTC transfer tool and it was a doddle, both phones need to be connected wirelessly for best transfer. Good luck.

My old Thunderbolt keeps losing it's Wifi connection every time I try to use the HTC transfer app!
I downloaded the app a few days before I got the new One and the 4 digit code came right up.
What am I doing wrong!

OK, I moved all my photos from old phone to new ONE. Now how do I get them from dropbox app to the Gallery where they belong?

just use dropbox. much better setup.
dropbox has a folder in the "gallery" section if you have your dropbox account setup on your phone.

Default Back up and restore disaster.

So i had to change my HTC1 bc the sound on it was just garbage. couldn't hear anyone talking and would just fade in and out. so i backed up my phone to drop box and got my new phone and restored the phone. well i would of been better of starting from new again. no contacts no pictures, all apps i think are there but have to be started as if new. just a mess. whats the point of having a back up and it not restoring anything. not sure what i missed if anything but not good.

Are you just venting or do you want to find a solution?

post #18 in this thread suggests using Google as the preferred backup method. you can also use an SMS backup app to save those if you needed to.

the restore process on Android is painless.

A solution is a mute point now bc its to late. from all i had read dropbox was the way to go bc google didn't do all thats was needed to restore everything as was, well it also turns out dropbox isn't the answer as well. im a little confused as to why there is not 1 thing that will back up the whole phone and restore the whole phone as is and why this would not be built into the phone. that said i only used dropbox as i said and not google but also like i said i read a lot of stuff that said avoid google for back up. who knew??

google restores everything, save sms data. sms data is carrier specific so i can see why google does not grab that data.

i have had android phones since 2009 and once google started this backup feature in android, i have had no issues.

Never too late to adopt the backup solution right for you.

Agreed, it would be nice if it were built in for a 100% backup.

Best choice for non-rooted users imo requires a matching app on your pc.

Check out "Helium - App Sync and Backup"

Pull down the status bar, go to the USB options from there.

Exit AFT.

Let it auto launch when you plug in your phone for best results.

I apologize, I'm not where I can plug my phone in.

There should be a notification next to that one.

Under your main settings, do you have a PC connection option, with a check box to have it always ask?

I'm likely on a version before what you're running, that's the best I can describe it.

Default How to move HTC songs to computer?

I have saved many songs on my HTC, and they have taken most space. But I don't want to delete any songs, so I want to move songs from HTC to computer, how to do that?

Hello loganwhite. Welcome to Android Forums. The easiest way for me to transfer files is via the USB charge / data cable. Go into your settings via the app tray and look for the setting Connect to PC. Open that and set your phone to be a mass storage device or whatever setting is no charge. Then connect your phone to your PC with the charge data cable. You should see a pop up of mass storage device detected or removable drive detected ... something similar. Now just open your local file browser on your PC and you should find a couple of new drives at the bottom of your tree. Peruse those drives looking for a folder called music. Now you can mass mark the files you want to move... right click and move them to your PC. I hope this helps.

Default music wont play after restoring files

Now on my 4th One (faulty, wet, damaged screen). Love this phone but this time of Re loading all my stuff back on to it none of my music will play. Keep getting, couldn't play the track you requested. All I did was back up files to computer off old phone. Plugged New phone into restore it and now it won't play, any ideas? Thanks.

the sky is the limit as to the issue.

lets try and get on the same page

are you rooted?
what carrier?
whats the latest OS update version on the device?
how did you backup the files?
are you having issues with other files transferred to the device?
can the music files be played on the computer you are transferring from?
what music program are you using? have you tried other music players?

are you rooted? Nope
what carrier? O2
whats the latest OS update version on the device?4.3
how did you backup the files? Using HTC transfer tool
are you having issues with other files transferred to the device? All other files seem spot on so far
can the music files be played on the computer you are transferring from? Not tried this and not at home with laptop at the mo.
what music program are you using? good question, just the gold headphone as I always have .have you tried other music players? I've tried right clicking to open but no joy, also tried to go on Amazon MP3 where I have purchased some tunes and that won't work either.

ok lets make sure you can play the files LOCALLY on your source computer first. no need to right click on the music files, just open up a computer mp3 player and choose a file to play.

on your device, use another music player. poweramp is highly recommended.

the htc transfer tool uses dropbox and its has been unreliable for some people who have posted on this site.

in my opinion, and for locally stored files such as music, videos, and text documents, i just transfer them locally to a computer or HDD or a thumb drive directly attached to the htc one and offload files that way and use google servers as the recommended backup for other data.

Will have a try when I get home tomorrow.

Update:


It seems that my new HP laptop converted all my music, video and pictures to some HP file. Bloody genius! I've wiped my phone and going to use my old laptop and try that instead. Really not happy!

UPDATE:

Music is back on phone and I'm a happy bunny!
