Backup Droid Razr Maxx to PC

2013-08-03, 0:52 AM


When I first got this phone it installed software to my PC that backed it up when I connected the USB cable (Disclaimer: I hope I remember this correctly - that was using Gingerbread).    Backed up the entire phone, not just contacts and media without being r*****d.  NOT an app that ran on the phone.



Now somebody will tell me that I have lost my everloving mind and maybe someone will keep me from thinking I'm developing Alzheimers and tell me what the software was and where to get it again.   I'm hoping for latter, but around here ...wink

Solved! See the solution

Someone else can give you the technical answer, but the quick lay person's answer is that I believe that USB Mass Storage Mode is no longer an option on the current OS.

When I connect to a PC via USB my computer launches the "Motorola Device Manager" program. This gives me the option of launching either "Backup Assistant Plus" or "Motocast USB". I downloaded the program from the Motorola website.



 



BTW mycurrent OS is 4.1.2

Ooooh, I must be wrong about having lost this capability with JB (yay!).



Thanks, @ndelaware!
