More android nerdom: FolderSync
One of my fears in life is losing/damaging my phone and therefore losing all the data I’ve stored on it. My phone isn’t just a phone, it is a mini-computer I get to carry everyday, therefore it holds just as much data content value as my laptop. It has documents, images, my music collection, etc.
I’m serious about not losing my data and have been looking for a better way to backup my phone’s content than just plugging it in and manually copying files when I happen to think about it. Enter the app, FolderSync.
Right now I have FolderSync linked to my Dropbox account and via samba to my NAS at home. FolderSync monitors the following folders and backs them up for me.
-SMSBackandRestore: An easy to use txt msg backup app that backs up my txts nightly. FolderSync grabs the nightly backup and puts it in my DropBox.
-Photos: Grabs my photos and puts them on my NAS at home.
-Tasker: Tasker is my favorite app of all time. It allows full automation, and I have it highly customized. FolderSync grabs the backup file and saves it to DropBox.
-Titanium Backup: TB backsup my apps and their data, FolderSync backs this up to DropBox so I can restore my apps and data onto a new phone if I ever lose mine.
-Music: Backs up to my NAS. I tend to buy music from the amazon music store, but I like to know I have a backup somewhere.
-FolderSync: When I make changes to FolderSync, I make a new backup of the FolderSync database. FolderSync then copies it to my DropBox.
