Ways to Create a Backup on Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X

Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X is a multipurpose device with many available ways to create a backup. The user just needs to choose one of the recommended options and follow the listed instructions.

A Local Copy

Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X allows to create a backup without resorting to third-party services. This way you can create a backup and save it in the device's memory. You will need to:

  1. Open the settings.
  2. Go to the "About the device" section, then select "Backup and Restore".
  3. Press the "Mobile device” button.
  4. Mark the necessary data, including apps, media and contacts.
  5. Click "Create a backup".

Then the automatic process of creating a backup will begin. The resulting file has to be moved to another device on which you plan to restore it. If the backup is performed before resetting the settings, the backup should be transferred temporarily (for example, to a computer), and then moved to Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X again.

It takes time to create a backup copy. The duration of the operation depends on how many files are being copied. The more information, the longer the operation may take. On average, the process takes 10-20 minutes.

Google Drive

The easiest way to make a full backup of your Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X is to use the system option. It allows you to create and upload a backup to Google Drive.

To perform the operation, follow these steps:

  1. Open the phone settings.

  2. Go to the "Google" section and then to "Back up".
  3. Enable the “Upload to Google Drive” slider.

With these simple steps, the automatic backup function will become enabled. You need Internet connection for it to work. Now, if the user decides to reset the settings, the data will not disappear, but instead will be saved on Google Drive.

When using the built-in copy method, keep in mind that there is limited space on Google Drive. Only 15 gigabytes are available for free. If this amount of storage is not enough, you will have to make a subscription or turn to an alternative option.

Third Party Applications

Limitations caused by insufficient storage space on Google Drive can make the user opt for other ways. An excellent option is the Titanium Backup application. However, it requires the owner of Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X to get root rights.

If the conditions are met, follow the instructions:

  1. Open the app and grant the required permissions.
  2. Click the button to create a backup in the “Back up" tab.
  3. Mark the files for copying and confirm the operation.

Backup will be saved in the root folder of the application. In the future, the file should be transferred to the phone selected for the recovery of the copy or to another device while the settings are being reset.

How to Restore a Backup

Restoring a backup depends on the backup method used by the device owner. If the copy was created via Google Drive, you need to go through authorization and activate the automatic synchronization with cloud storage in the device settings.

If the backup was carried out by creating a local copy, the file must be placed in the Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X directory. Then you should open the settings and click the "Restore backup" button in the "Backup and Restore" section.

Users that created a copy via a special application (Titanium Backup) need to transfer the backup to the internal memory of the phone and install the app. Next, you need to launch Titanium Backup and open one of the saved backups in the "Backups" section.
