Back Up, Sync and Restore Deleted Apps in Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Although there are numerous Android apps nowadays that are capable of restoring the lost files and apps of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 after a memory wipe, nothing beats the conventional method of backing up, synchronization and restoration. This is because the conventional method is the easiest and quickest way to restore the deleted contents of your Galaxy Note 2.

A. The Common Method

Here is a step-by-step way of backing up, synchronizing and restoring data to your Galaxy Note 2:

1. Backing Up Contents

  • Set up a Google account.
  • Go to Settings.
  • Proceed to Privacy.
  • Enable “Back up my data and “Automatic restore”.

2. Synchronizing Data

  • Go back to Settings.
  • Select “Accounts and Sync”.
  • Choose the type of data that you want to sync.

3. Restore the Files

Once you have synchronized every important data in your Google account, everything will be restored automatically after a wipe.

B. Another Alternative

Relying on Google alone may leave out some apps or contents of the Galaxy Note 2 from being backed up like pictures, SMS and others. So, it is advisable that you use other apps to back these up. But instead of using separate apps, you can just use Lookout to everything up from your multimedia contents, text messages, contacts and other important data.

All you have to do is sign up with Lookout through its official website. Then, schedule your backup regularly or manually do it through its dashboard. Once you have done that and after performing a factory reset, just choose Backup in Lookout’s Dashboard. Next, select Restore and set the device that you want to restore through the snapshots provided there. Hit the Restore button to finish the whole process.
