Using HTC Backup

Using HTC Backup

Save the time and frustration of re-creating your personalized HTC Desire 500 experience when you do a factory reset or you lose, damage, or buy another phone. On HTC Desire 500, use HTC Backup to do a daily backup to the cloud so you can easily restore your content and settings next time.

HTC Backup uses your Dropbox storage to keep your content and settings. It can back up and restore the following:

Home screen settings These include your categories and headlines in HTC BlinkFeed, widgets, and Home screen layout.
Accounts and passwords HTC Backup stores the login credentials for many popular email and social network accounts, including Exchange ActiveSync, Microsoft Hotmail, Flickr, LinkedIn, Evernote, and POP/IMAP.
Apps and settings These include your web bookmarks, personal dictionary, Wi-Fi networks, apps you've installed, grid size and sort order in the All apps view, and over 150 other settings.
