For those who own a Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone 8, 8.1 or Windows Phone 10 operating system, you will surely know that there is a function inside that allows you to backup and restore data (sms, photos, videos, contacts, etc ...) directly on the OneDrive cloud. In practice, this feature is identical to the backup / restore service present on the iPhone with iCloud.
Run the data backup and restore directly online has its pros but also its cons. Among the disadvantages we mention the following:
> An active wifi connection is required to perform backup and / or restore
> If you forget your OneDrive login password, it becomes impossible to access your data
> Security and privacy concerns when having sensitive data online
If you don't want to use the OneDrive backup & restore function, we suggest another solution in this article. Thanks to the program Mobiletrans you can save the main data (photos, music, contacts…) of your Nokia Lumia directly on your computer (PC or Mac). Once backed up and saved in a folder on your PC or Mac, you can reuse it at any time to restore data to your device.
First download and install Mobiletrans on your PC:
