Auto Restore is a helpful feature that allows you bring the software state of your device to previously saved point. For example, when you enable Auto Restore now, your device will automatically back whatever changes in the system. This will allow you to return the data of your apps that you may have deleted at a much later time to the point when you enabled Auto Restore.
When trying to determine if a third-party app is the cause of an operating system / app issue, ensure Automatic restore is turned off before performing a factory data reset.
Below are the steps to turn on Auto Restore on your Galaxy S10:
- From a Home screen, swipe up or down from the center of the display to access the apps screen.
- Open Settings app.
- Tap Accounts and backup.
- Tap Backup and restore.
- From the Google account section, ensure Back up my data is on Switch on.
- Tap Automatic restore to turn on off.
