    The only Backup solution (I know of) which does not require root access. Makes it possible to backup your phone including all app data. Never lose data again.

    Step 1 Prima di tutto vi servirà scaricare l'app dal Google Play e il software per PC, Linux o Mac Step 2 Avviate entrambi i software e collegate il vostro dispositivo Android al PC via USB abilitando il debugging USB quando richiesto. Step 3 Se tutto andrà bene avviando Helium, troverete una lista di tutto i software installati sul vostro dispositivo. Basterà selezionare le app che ci interessano e spuntare la casellina in fondo "App Data Only", cosi facendo Helium, effettuerà il backup dei soli salvataggi e non dell'app stessa. Step 4 Una volta cliccato su Backup, dovremo scegliere dove salvare i nostri dati, tenete presente che le opzioni Dropsbox o Google Drive sono solo disponibili per la veresione premium dell'app, mentre salvare sul proprio pc è completamente gratuito. Cliccate quindi su USB storage e attendete che il processo finisca. Step 5 Qualora volessimo ripristinare i salvataggi dal nostro pc al device Android, basterà connettere quest'ultimo via usb, dopo aver reinstallato sia il videogames che naturalmente Helium. basterà una volta avviata l'app recarsi nella tab "Restore and Sync".
