    Thomas Jones
    Did you have synced calendar to your Gmail? If yes, you can get your calendars back from Gmail account.
    After a recovery my calendar is EMPTY!!! :( Can't restore it and years of entries is gone!!! All calendars are open in S Calendar in Samsung Galaxy S4.

    Adam, you can use this desktop MobileGo for Android to restore contacts, SMS, video, photos, music, apps, call logs, calendars and playlists info as long as you backed them up with MobileGo for Android before. As for calendars, you can sync them to your Google account. When you restore your S4, you can get them back from Google account. Besides, yes, of course, you need to install MobileGo app on your Galaxy S4.( it will be automatically installed when you run the desktop MobileGo for Android and your S4 is connected via USB cable.
    Good morning, If I do a factory reset on my Samsung Galaxy S4 will I then be able to restore my full backup using Wondershare MobileGo Android? Do I need to install the app first on my Galaxy S4 after I've completed the factory reset or is that irrelevant? Thank you for you help in this matter as I'm a little apprehensive to wiping out my phone completely without knowing everything I need to know in order to restore it.
