    I am about to do another factory reset. I don't want to lose the data on my apps. Is there a non-root way to backup the apps and the data contained within?

    I have tried app to sd but not all the apps can be moved.

    TIA

    You can simply sync your apps with App Brain, can't you?

    That won't keep the app data though.

    I am doing the exact same thing and I just used Astro file manager to backup my apps. From what I understand that will backup apps and data, and will allow AppBrain to recognize the installed apps after factory reset.

    I've also managed to backup all my Contacts as Google contacts and segregated them into two groups - Contacts and the massive database of emails I've amassed (thanks to Gmail) over the last several years. I also backed up Launcher Pro.

    I'm almost ready to factory reset but I need a good option for backing up SMS and MMS messages. From what I can tell, the backup assistant is useless.

    Any suggestions? TIA

    MyBackup Pro does exactly this...backs up your apps with data and all of your settings, contacts, SMS, bookmarks, etc. It's on the market and is worth the couple dollars they charge.

    Astro backs up only the apps, no app data (settings, user data) are backed up. Titanium Backup backs up apps, app data, user settings, and system data, but requires a rooted device.

    This, but know the online storage is teeny and can be upgraded for a couple dollars a month.

    Thanks. Wish I'd seen this before I did the reset. I had to reinstall all my apps and non of the accounts of user data was retained. Only managed to backup contracts, SMS, MMS, phone log and bookmarks. The primary reasons for doing the reset was to get my text messages showing up in order. Alas, they STILL do not. Anyone found a solution for this in Froyo? Stupid desert!

    There is also an option to store it on your SD card, which is more than enough for what the app needs.

    Aye, but if you lose your phone that's not much help. That's really the only reason I wanted to back-up my apps, because I've never had any software/hardware issues with phones, just my own stupidity. haha
