Back Up Your Data on Your Tablet

The first thing you should do when you get a new tablet, is to set up a back up. You never know what'll happen to it and it'll be bad to lose all those memorable photos and videos along with the tablet. It'll be too late when you lose the tablet so better back up now!

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Backup and Restore Using Samsung Account

Back up your data with no strings attached, literally! With Samsung account registered on your tablet, you can back up your data safe and sound on Samsung Cloud.

From Settings, search for and select Backup and restore. Touch Back up data under SAMSUNG ACCOUNT. Select the data you want to back up, and then touch BACK UP. If you want to restore the backed up data, touch Restore data. Select the data you want to restore, and then touch RESTORE.

Note: If you are using a Verizon tablet, Samsung Cloud services may not be available.

Backup and Restore Using Google Account

If you use Google services, you can back up your data automatically to Google Drive.

From Settings, search for and select Backup and restore. If you have more than one Google account added to the tablet, touch Backup account, and then select the Google account you want to back up to. To back up your data, enable Back up my data. To restore backed up settings and data automatically, enable Automatic restore.
