If you spend half the day twiddling your thumbs on your Android phone or tablet, then it can be assumed that all your important and useful information is stored in your phone. This information can be both personal and financial in nature, e.g., your email messages, contacts, installed apps, data related to apps, pictures, music and more. If you do not want to take the risk of losing this important data from your phone by accidental removal of apps or foolishly deleting the files, then you should keep a backup of your Android device apps and data. The Titanium Backup ★root app provides you with a complete backup suite for your Android devices. It can backup your apps, system data, user data, data on SD card and more.
The “★root” in Titanium Backup ★root means that for using your Android device must be rooted i.e., it must be running with root privileges. This is necessary as the Titanium Backup has to access the Android file system in order to backup or restore them. If you do not have a rooted device, then this app will not work for you. When you launch it after the installation, it would ask you for root/superuser permissions. You should give it superuser permissions and select to remember the choice forever (so that it does not bother you later).
In the Titanium Backup app, you have to switch to the Backup/Restore tab which shows you all the installed apps on your device. The apps in red are installed in system space while the green apps are installed in the user space. In general, you do not really have to create a backup of the system apps (the one that come with Android).
If you want to create a backup for an app in this list, then you can tap on that app once. It will show you various options for that app – freeze the app, backup, restore or uninstall it. If you have previously created a backup before, then you can restore it from this screen.
If you do not want to waste time going through this list for regular backups, then you can schedule automated backups in the Titanium Backup app. Although it already runs scheduled backups for backing up new apps, but you can create your own schedules as well. You have to tap on Add new schedule and enter the details about backup action type, filters, time and days.
You can create or restore the data related to apps one by one but it is a very frustrating process if you have to backup/restore data for multiple apps. If you have to process multiple items for backup or restore, then you can use the batch actions. The batch actions interface can be opened by tapping on the small file icon near the top-right corner or from the menu. The batch actions screen has an extensive list of all types of backup and restore actions i.e., backup all user apps, backup all system data, restore all user apps, restore all system data etc.
Conclusion: Titanium Backup ★Root app is a very extensive backup suite for for Android devices. It can backup everything under the Sun for your Android smartphone or tablet. It can backup messages, texts, calls, passwords, bookmarks, apps, data and more. The free version of the app does not include cool features like the ability to use Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box.net for backup/restore.
