App Backups

This is where you manage your existing app backups.

Note that on rooted phones, the app data/settings is also saved.


Tap the restore button to restore all selected apps.

To restore a particular version, only select one app, a dialog will allow you to choose which version to restore.

The restore dialog always allows you to select the restore destination if device is rooted. You can select the following destinations:

  • Internal/User space, default destination for user-installed apps. Recommended
  • SD cards, 'secure' destination for paid apps, might be slower, will be unavailable on boot (even if internal storage only) and when SD card is removed. Will prevent boot services from running, and all background services (widgets, notifications) when SD card is removed.
  • System space, location of pre-installed apps. Be careful that enough space is available, full system partition causes lots of problems. App will check that twice the size of the app is available before restoring/moving apps to System. All app updates will then be installed on internal storage (user space) and use twice the space.


WARNING: Deleting existing backup is permanent.
