Although, HTC One allows you set up a daily backup of all your important information and settings, a great amount of HTC users encounter the trouble that things stored on HTC One accidentally lost without realizing it. According to a report, most of HTC users don’t know how to use the HTC one’s great backup function, and some of them even have no idea to backup their HTC One. To avoid the unnecessary data loss, you’d better backup your HTC One before you erase data from HTC, factory reset your phone or upgrade to a new HTC One M9. Here I conclude 3 easy ways to backup HTC One mobiles.

Option 1. Backup HTC One using HTC Backup

The in-built HTC Backup uses your free Google drive and Dropbox storage to retain your contents and settings. It is capable of backing up and restore home screen setting like categories and headlines from BlinkFeed, wallpaper, widgets and layout of home screen. The other stuffs backed up are the accounts and passwords and apps and settings like contacts, sms, call history, web bookmarkds, personal dictionary, Wi-Fi networks etc.

Sync with DropBox:
- Turn off Google Backup and set HTC One to backup daily over-the air.
- Go to setting -> Backup & Reset ->Tap the Backup On/Off switch(optional)
- Select the HTC Account and sign in (you can sign in with HTC Account/Facebook)
- Sign into Dropbox, slect Backup History and the tap button “Back up now”.

Backup with Google Drive:
- Open the HTC Backup app and turn on automatic backup to do a daily backup.
- Make sure Back up phone daily is selected, and then tap Next.
- Sign in with your Google Account, HTC Account, or Facebook Account.
-On the Cloud storage screen, hit the Google Drive, then tap “OK”.
- Sign in to your Google Account to access your Google Drive.
- Tap “Back up now” to manually back up HTC One anytime.

Option 2. Backup HTC One with HTC Sync Manager

HTC Sync Manager is an useful utility to backup music playlists and files such as  contacts, calendar events, bookmarks etc. from your HTC to your computer. It enables to transfer iPhone data to HTC phone. It is a separate software which should be installed. Also, you can import and copy all music, photos, and videos between your HTC phone with computer.
