Ways of backing up files, data, and settings

Worried that you might lose important stuff on HTC One XL? Back up HTC One XL 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, apps, settings, and more to the cloud so that it will be easier to restore them on HTC One XL (after a factory reset) or newer phone. For details, see .

HTC Sync Manager

Use HTC Sync Manager to import music, photos, and videos to your computer. You can also sync locally stored contacts, calendar events, bookmarks, documents, and playlists to your computer. For details, see Syncing your media and data with HTC Sync Manager.

Other backup options

Separately back up other data and file types if they're not supported in HTC Backup and HTC Sync Manager.

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.
