    Have a look at Cachemate and Titanium Backup for root users. You should also have Busybox if you don't have that already.

    I second cachemate, but instead of titanium backup I would suggest MyBackUp Root. It's a lot better imo.

    If you apply a lagfix, titanium backup doesn't restore apps properly. It glitches, you have to reinstall one by one. MyBackUp pro works flawlessly. It also has the option to backup to online resources, which is great.

    Also, titanium backup was really only useful for freezing applications, but since I deleted the 3D gallery and replaced it with quickpic, I haven't found any reason to have titanium backup.

    I had both of them installed and I found MyBackUp Pro to be cleaner and more straight forward.
    The freeze app option in Titanium Backup is nice in some case where you don't want to delete the app but you do not use it very often. I just found for myself that there were only two app that fell in that category and did not see a point having both installed.
