    I need to install a backup program and was wondering what the favorites were and why. Thanks for all replies.

    Titanium Backup for apps..backs up apps, data, and market connections

    Mt backup pro for sms, mms, bookmarks, and misc other stuff

    Both support scheduled backups...

    Ditto! Titanium Backup and MyBackup Pro are all you need. But I don't used the schedulers.

    Smug rooters. :) Titanium Backup requires device be rooted. Its feature that I cover is application dara backup.

    Someday my root will come and in the meantime... some devs provide menu option to export configs/settings to SD card. This can be a great thing.

    I use ASTRO to back up applications themselves. On occasion, I want to keep multiple versions and I use SystemPanel for this.

    I use Sprite Backup, which I think is similar to My Backup Pro. You can store backups on SD card, internal storage, external server, & they've recently added DropBox integration, which I haven't played with yet.

    While both can be done with Sprite, I started with Call Log Backup & Restore and SMS B&R (same dev) and choose to continue using them.

    I was too chicken you-know-what to test any of the above but had to do a data wipe a while back, & all worked just as hoped.

    Yeah, I know, but I like how My Backup Pro handles it in the UI better...much better usability for backup and restore of that stuff for me...

    So, for non rooted users My Backup Pro looks like the best option.

    Yep! Although, I've been experimenting and it appears for rooted folks, Titanium Backup does everything and there's no real need for MyBackup Pro anymore. (At least for me.) YMMV

    Is there a backup program for non-rooted users that will restore all your icons and layout on your home screen? I use backup pro, but it doesn't seem to do that. Any suggestions?

    How does the stock backup application for 2.2 work?
