Whether you are using a ZTE phone or another brand of Android phone, never forget to back up your device at the appropriate time. Backing up your phone is essential because it can save you unnecessary trouble. For example, once you have done ZTE phone backup, after you accidentally lose important data from your ZTE phone, you can restore the lost data from the backup, which is much easier than recovering lost data from the ZTE phone.

Therefore, we all have to remember to backup our mobile devices from time to time, because you never know when you will accidentally delete or lose valuable things. In this article, we have four different methods to perform ZTE backup and restore for reference.

Way 1. Complete ZTE Backup and Restore with USB

The most convenient point of an Android phone is that it allows users to connect it to a computer via USB, and then copy and paste the contents of the phone into the computer storage. Although this method is simple, it only supports a small number of file types, such as photos, music, and videos.

Step 1: Connect your ZTE phone to your computer via a USB cable. Drag down the notifications panel from the top of your ZTE phone's screen to choose the option of "USB connection" > "USB Mass Storage" > "OK".

Step 2: On your computer, you will see the ZTE phone becomes a removable disk on your computer once the USB connection is enabled.

Step 3: Double click on the name of your ZTE phone to open its internal storage, then, you can browse all the folders and copy all the files inside to your computer.

ZTE backup using USB is very easy, but there will be some problems. In addition to the shortcomings mentioned above that only a small number of file types are supported, it is also very clumsy and requires you to manually update this backup. If you want a more efficient way to ensure that this ZTE backup is always up to date, then read on.
