    HI All,

    What is a good back up software for the G1. I want to back up to the sd card and I guess a computer. There are various ones but know you all know what the good vs bad ones are.

    Yes, I guess I could just plug in my phone to a computer and copy all to a folder but looking for an easier way to back up to sd card. I think there was some wireless way to back up to a computer also???

    Thanks in Advance.

    Larry

    YES ... the obvious way and easiest and fastest way in to copy the sdcard into a folder (dateNamed) of course if you want to have all back ups ...

    Before you do that though I would backup all your apps and phone settings data to the sdcard with an app called "MyBackup Pro" ...

    If you are rooted and have JF recovery image you can do a Nandroid backup which does essentially an entire image of the phone ... for exact recovery

    There is/was an app in the market for backing up to a server in the Clouds (dont remember the name)... but who wants to backup 16GB of data via a phones data 3G connection ..

    SugarSync is a good application to manage file on your device if you are tight on space, or need peace of mind for the file.

    We (MyBackup Pro) have been considering doing this type of Cloud space management for media content. We are doing this cloud setup currently for full phone backups.
