My Android tablet seems to have back-up built into the OS. I gather that it's standard to the OS. It's ticked to backup to Google's servers. It has an option to restore settings for reinstalled apps. I don't see what the point of that is. However, yesterday when I switched it on it said it had to wipe itself. It then reverted to factory condition. I think it said something about reinstalling, but I was off-line at that time, so if it was going to restore itself it couldn't. Later I tried a factory reset to see if that would do it. ( I had nothing to lose). It didn't. There doesn't seem to be anyway to apply that backup - i.e. no way to restore anything at all. Which means that I'm having to find and install all the apps that I use, one by one. So is there a way to reinstall from the Google servers' back up and how do I do it?
