Ways of backing up files, data, and settings

Worried that you might lose important stuff on HTC Butterfly? Back up HTC Butterfly before you erase the storage, do a factory reset, or upgrade to a new phone.

HTC Backup

Use the built-in HTC Backup to back up your accounts, settings, contacts stored on your phone, text messages, and more to the cloud so that it will be easier to restore them on HTC Butterfly (after a factory reset) or newer phone.

HTC Sync Manager

Use HTC Sync Manager to import music, photos, and videos from HTC Butterfly to your computer. You can also sync locally stored contacts, calendar events, bookmarks, and playlists between HTC Butterfly and your computer.

Likewise, HTC Sync Manager is a good alternative if you don't want to back up your accounts, settings, and other personal content to the cloud. You can use it to create backups of HTC Butterfly on your computer.

Other backup options

If you want, you can separately back up your data or files.

In some apps, you can back up data to the storage on the phone so you can easily restore them after a factory reset.

Important: If you're backing up data to the storage, don't choose to erase the storage when you do a factory reset.
Messages Back up your text messages to the storage on the phone, or save them as an email attachment.
Contacts
  • Save contacts and other personal data to your online accounts so you can just sync them when switching to another phone.
  • If you have locally stored contacts in the People app, export them to the storage on the phone.
Files Manually copy and paste files by connecting HTC Butterfly to your computer as a disk drive.
Other data
  • If you added new words to your personal dictionary in the onscreen keyboard, back up the dictionary to the storage card or save it as an email attachment.
  • Check the other apps to see if they support exporting data to the storage.
