Today, the most visible work of Samsung's Media Solutions Center has been for its cell phones sold in the world, though obvious attracting advantages as Samsung phone has (Galaxy S3, Note 3), it still can’t avoid some systematic drawbacks. When we need to backup files within the mobile, a simple data cable can solve the problem on condition that those files are downloaded by us. What if we want to make backups for text messages?

Learn the Storage Principle of Text Messages

In general, there’re three positions respectively named RAM, USB and SD for smart phones. RAM is the systematic place of the mobile and USB storage is the internal space while the SD card is the external card which can be moved out from or insert in the smart phone. Some systematic files are automatically stored in RAM and can’t be moved neither to USB storage space nor SD card. The vast majority of the rest dada is downloaded by us. You can place it in the USB space or SD card or whatever you like. In most case we prefer to put the downloaded files in the SD card rather than move it in RAM for the reason that when most of space in RAM is occupied the mobile would run very slowly. Once encountered some urgent incidents, we may as well take some measures. In this time you need to transfer files to the compute to make backups. It’s absolutely quite easy for you to settle them when the files are located in USB space or card. A data cable is enough. On one side you contact the interface with your mobile and the other with your computer and you can continue your conductions on your computers. The rest part of job is to find out files needed to backup and do what you want.
