Note: No More Data Loss With Regular Backup

As the saying goes, never put all your eggs in one basket. It is also risky to keep all your Sony pictures and other files only in internal memory. Regular backup is necessary to avoid permanent data loss. To backup Sony pictures as well as other data, there are three ways:

  • Sony's built-in backup and restore application. On Sony Xperia, go to "Settings" > "Backup & Restore". Choose where to store the backup and what to back up. Then tap "Back up Now". However the backup will occupy much phone memory.
  • Sony Xperia Backup

  • Use Backup tools to backup your Sony Xperia to computer. This is a safest option because the backup pictures on the phone could be gone if the phone is broken or lost.
  • Backup your Sony pictures and more to cloud storage, such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox. The main drawback of cloud storage backup is that when running out of free storage, users have to pay for extra storage.
