Shareit is working seamlessly... Thanks for the suggestion.



For Android Mobile,
I will recommend Shareit.
You have to be on same wifi both on PC & Mobile.

Download Shareit app for PC (Windows 7/8/10)
SHAREit - Download
SHAREit - Download



Download Shareit app for Mobile from Playstore.

If you want to shift data as FOLDER to PC / Laptop from Android then
I use Shareit.
Shareit on PC / Laptop is best to transfer a Folder.
Files can be transferred easily via any method.
Only some apps transfer Folders as it is to PC / Laptop.



Superbeam is another app.
Try it.


Those who want to transfer files and folders via old wimdows
can use AIRDROID app in browser.
Files can be downloaded easily.
Folders are downloaded in compressed/zip from only.

These 50000 Apps will make you a 'beggar'....Be careful

New Delhi, Dec 27-
Google Play -
Google's Android applications, as well As the content store, is no stranger to malware, fake applications, and money grabbing schemes. The latest report claims that the Google Play application store had listed several fake applications that didn't actually provide what the actually promise they don't even provide their listed offerings.. Researchers at global IT security firm Quick Heal Technologies have uncovered in the Google Play store various fake applications with Over 50,000 installations which trick people to download and rate other sponsored applications

"These apps seem to be authentic as a PDF reader, PDF Downloader, PDF Scanner etc., but they actually don't have such functionality in real," Rupali Parate, an Android malware analyst at Quick Heal Technologies wrote in a blog posted by her on Friday.These applications instigate users to download and rate 5 stars to sponsor applications in order to unlock this application.only after the installation of other application and rating them in 5 stars, the user could be able to use the PDF reader after 24 hours.



"But after twenty-four hours, the same twist starts again. It asks users to login with any created password and asks users to download the same app to unlock the application," Parate said

The main intention behind this process is to increase the download count of these applications along with a good rating of sponsored applications. The sponsored apps as well do the same thing.



"Users should be very alert while downloading such fake applications. The user can very easily recognise such fake applications by just going through the reviews," Parate said, adding that Quick Heal had reported these apps to Google

Congrats !

You cannot rely on a single app.

Use pc / laptop
and check backup is done right or not.

Shareit can transfer folders to pc / laptop as it is.
Transfer data of pics / video and whatsapp
Backup contacts with mc contacts..
Sms can be backed up by sms backup app.

Whatsapp re installation detail can be checked on whatsapp thread also.

By the way, MI backup suite is CRAP.

Each & every backup suite may work for same UI only and with less data only.
This will certainly not work with other UI.
MIUI is only compatible with MIUI only.

I use shareit for transfer of Folders.
If folder with small number of file size is less than 4GB then it is OK with shareit,
otherwise make more folders and transfer data with those folders easily.


Contacts Backup :

1.
Transfer by Bluetooth.
Mobile to Mobile - direct bluetooth transfer is possible.

2.
MCBackup - My Contacts Backup

3.
Airmore App
with a limited success.


SMS Backup:

A.
SMS Backup

You have to transfer files from old mobile to new mobile by appropriate methods like bluetooth / shareit / email etc.

Most of the apps have limit to take particular size of backup only.

MCBackup - My Contacts Backup – Apps on Google Play
I'm interested in something like this, so I don't rely only on Google /gmail contacts for backup, but then I thought of the security issue. It basically means giving my entire contacts data to this app company.
There is no cloud based data.
You can install it
Send data (.vcf file) to your email.
Uninstall it.
Whenever you need to install those contacts
Again install this app.
Do your job.
Uninstall it again.
Simple....



SPL Note.
If this file does not work
Even then
You can check your data manually in notepad on pc or mobile.

If you are not saving any data anywhere,
Everything will be lost.

However Google, in new mobiles is keeping contacts if you are saving it with email account.
