    Got a Samsung Galaxy S5 recently and want to save the important phone data to a computer as a backup? If the answer is yes continue reading! You might be getting troubles if you lose important data that saved on your phone, such as contacts, photos, and email. The best way to avoid any issues is to backup all the data on your computer. You can use many third party software available today but we recommend MobileTrans, which allows you to backup all the content you have on the Samsung Galaxy S5 quickly. In this article, we will be talking about How to Backup Samsung Galaxy S5 to PC using MobileTrans.

    Before explaining How to Backup Samsung Galaxy S5, we will talk about EFS (Encrypting File System).

    What is EFS?

    EFS is a system directory that contains device's essential information such as its IMEI, wireless device MAC address, baseband version, product code, system ID and NV data. In case the EFS directory is corrupted or lost, your phone or tablet will surely lose its IMEI number and wireless and network connectivity. You might ask how and why does the EFS data on your device might be lost or get corrupted? The answer is pretty simple and the reason might be a daring activity on your part. Sometimes flashing a custom Kernel (as reported by some users) and in most cases installing a custom ROM are responsible for the EFS data loss.

After you locate the saved backup file that you want to restore to the phone, click "Start Copy" to transfer the data from the backup file to the phone.
