  1. Jul Pé-avatar

    It was a great app, but with the updates it has had some bugs. I have a Huawei phone and it doesn't work properly. With older versions I had things that now doesn't work, such as: 1: An icon on the desktop 2: Ability to backup WiFi names and passwords 3: Ability to backup App data Any of the numerous updates (since 2018 aprox) has fixed that bugs. PS: My phone is a Huawei P8 Lite (2015) with EMUI 4.0.3

  2. A Google user-avatar

    pc After having to change to another phone this year, I realized that all my backups from 2019 and 2020 have errors or incomplete data. That never happened before, with that version when the program icon was still there. I trusted you and you made me loose so much important data! Older version was better. Even Android itself.

  3. apgduo2 online-avatar

    erstellen - again very bad release... Nothing really changed, starting from the totally useless and unfeasible encryption without no other choice. Again, the release won't find neither shared dirs on PCs nor on our two QNAP NAS, only try to find shares on our DVB-T/C receiver. As already mentioned, still no backup of contacts, messages, calendar data and photos/videos even though selected for backup.

  4. Karen Card-avatar

    app PLEASE FIX URGENTLY Got 5 Huaweis. LOVED this 2 start with - 1 of reasons I continued 2 buy as could transfer data quickly & easily when I change Mob & could often revert 2 previous version of an app if new 1 playing up. Now depending on version if I use it says password wrong when correct, latest update makes icon disappear so can't find let alone open even via Play Store (is this due 2 Google & Huawei probs??) & won't let me select specific items 2 restore. Thought SD card corrupted but isn't!

  5. Sandra Tucker-avatar

    passwort vergessen Like the idea of having my information backed up.It's so easy to loose things through the process these years.Recommended for everyone to do so nothing's lost.Will continue with it as I've have had no problems with it.

  6. AbriPix-avatar

    apk Does not work without a password. I don't need any password and encryption. Unzipping software for PC don't open the files after typing the correct password.

  7. Heather Duncan-avatar

    machen What does "the beta program for this app is full" mean? Sounds like it's faulty/or a disappointment?! I haven't used/needed it & don't see what it does. There's no reports - do we just have to presume it works?

  8. Back Gaming-avatar

    mac I can't backup anything because my phone has only 4GB RAM ?! THIS IS A 400$ PHONE ! But going in app works so I uninstalled this app >=~( ALSO DOESNT LET TO BACKUP CORRECTLY IT SAYS BACUP FINISHED AND BOUGHT A HUAWEI P SMART FOR 700$ AND I REFUNDED IT CUZ CANNOT GET FILES BACK!

    The time i came to know that my device i.e. honor play will not get emui10 update even tho it's having a flagship processer, I have decided not to buy any of the honor devices or products......also I'm giving 1 star to each of its app......

  21. Liam Carlin-avatar

    After the past couple of updates I can no longer backup to my Network. Nor connect to network neighbourhood through the files app. They just throw up this error message everytime I try to login. "Make sure that your phone and NAS device are connected to the same network" Other apps connect just fine to my NAS.

  22. Adrian Shaw-avatar

    Apps are disappearing or uninstalled but still there and I can't drag them to delete 😡😒

  23. Samuel Adinoyi-avatar

    I'm quite dissapointed with this app from Huawei. After I backed up all my application into the SD card, I reset my phone, after which I restored the backed up application. The disappointing thing is that the app didn't restore the cache file (all my settings to the app aren't restored) this is a big setback by the app.

  26. Larry Williams-avatar

    I upgraded to version Icon removed on home screen. Very bad idea. Very hard now to find the backup program. Finally found it in settings>apps>Huawei Backup. The program will not open now to do a backup. Who was the idiot that made these changes. Please Change back the way it was before. I am now unable to backup my phone

  27. R G-avatar

    👎⛔PoS app how could you corrupt my backup on SD card?! It says wrong password now but it was always the same password. If i wasnt forced to encrypt in the first place maybe it wouldn't have bugged out. Missing photos and video on top of that when selecting restoring options. Terrible app, can't trust these apps for big backups. Hopefully I had also made a backup with Hisuite and not SD card only. Wish you the worst.

  28. Sadeeq Ahmad-avatar

    Thanks is good app and very fast i like it. Keepit up!

  29. Jarda Danicek-avatar

    Not able to finish backup even after 5 attempts, crashes somewhere in the middle of it, i have exported images but no images really eported in the folder, often disconnects for no reason, really poor development job

  30. Kathleen Smith-avatar

    Earlier today I uninstalled back to factory setting twice and restarted this device so that the icon came back and I could run a backup. But then this app update removed the icon for the app and now I cannot run backup. Now I will fix it again, and not update the app, hopefully you can fix the bug?

  31. Edwin Bridge-avatar

    I backed up all of my data from internal to sd card 15gig worth.. Backup completed successfully and then i reset my phone to factory.. After startup and updating app i found that no backup was done or is detected whatsoever... Great app this. Lost all my stuff...

    Backup the data with a password. After that it does not recognise the password and your data are crypted. You can't get anymore your data on your phone after you reset it. Hisuit can't recover password

  36. David Barber-avatar

    Backed up to my NAS. Now can't read the data on the NAS. I can't therefore verify the backup before deleting my photos etc. How can I verify? There needs to be the ability to explore backup files...

    So now I can't do a backup as the option to choose where to backup to, e. G. My SD card, doesn't appear any longer. UPDATE: I uninstalled the app from the play store screen, reinstalled it and presto! - the functionality returned - until I updated the update at which point the options to update to external storage or SD card disappeared again. Also, in what universe do you get the screens that you show above? No response to any of these complaints. Typical, I fear.

  79. Gary Deakin-avatar

    Good service no problems with the app at all

  80. Doru Rus-avatar

    To all users. Do not update to any version greater than 9. You will be forced to use encryption. That is not an option. (Use encryption, forget password, useless backup). The app does not backup everything, Smart Remote for example. I had to stick with the latest version of 9 series. Otherwise the application works great for me.

    I find it useful as back up data, onto a sd card, works OK for all contacts, messages, apps, like game data, so I accasionally use it. But at the moment I have uninstalled the app into games library, as I have no space on my device, and trying to make some space for other systems apps. No problems with this app, as I will install again at a later date.

Now icon of the app is no longer available. Then how a user can backup his sms, calls or other apps etc on SD Card? Whereas, there is only option to backup his data on Google drive, which is not recommended by everyone. So resolve this issue immediately, please.

    Excellent and does what it must as described. Well done Huawei. I am upset that photos from gallery and other related photographic data can't be backed up to cloud as it says "not available in your country/region". Please get this up and running. I'd like to be able to synchronize all my photos across all my Huawei devices and computer through Huawei instead of doing manual and Google drive backups. Please see into this. I'm from South Africa.

    Was a great app - easy and strong - but getting worse recently. 1. Please bring back the option to back up without encryption. I want to be able to get back at least some of my data even without Huawei device / app. 2. Please bring back the desktop icon. It's really annoying to search for the backup app throughout the settings.

    I almost lost my whatsapp data because of this stupid update I made a backup of the whole phone then factory reset .. Then restore But it did not restore whatsapp data only the apk package showing this stupid message : "some apps (such as banking apps) may crash, freeze or encounter other issues when their data is restored blah blah blah" and after a very hard struggle i downgraded to the very first version before and it worked well So fix this issue
