How to Transfer Files between Android and Computer

Saving data only on your Android phone is not as safe as you may think, for they would be gone due to many unexpected reasons. For example, you may delete some files by mistake; you may lose your contacts after syncing; you may lose all data after a factory reset. And you will regret not backing up your phone data if you drop your Android onto ground or into water, or your device gets attacked by virus.

 

As time goes by since you first used your Android, the data and files increase in your phone and take up storage space, which slows down your device gradually. You then need to delete something to free up space for improved performance. And when you want to change your smartphone, you need some backup files to restore to the new Android. Of course you can transfer data from the old device to the new phone directly using a phone to phone transfer tool like cFone Mobile Transfer.

 

Nevertheless, if you want to backup your Android to the computer so you can always have backup for later use, I would also like to suggest you use cFone Mobile Transfer - an Android file transfer for Mac as well as Windows. This data transfer tool is an all-in-one solution that features phone to phone transfer, phone to computer backup and computer to phone restoring functions. With the help of this software, you can transfer contacts, text messages, photos, videos, music and other data files between Android phone and computer.
