How to Backup Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Has anyone successfully backed up the Note 3? I've tried so hard to get that done by unchecking some files to backup, connecting and reconnecting the device, even went to the extent of re - installing my 3.0 USB driver and all I get after starting the backup is MTP failed error on my device.

Actually, Samsung Kies is not the only way to backup your Samsung Note 3. If you are looking for other ways, stop here. This article is going to show you simple ways available about backing up all files on your Samsung Note 3 to the computer, and even transfer to the other phone.

Method 1: Backup Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to the computer

As you know, music, videos and photos are saved on the SD card of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and can be directly backed up to the computer with a single USB cable. However, text messages, calendar, call logs and others are stored in the phone memory card, which can't be read and backed up to the computer. Hence, to do the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Backup, you need to draw support from some Note 3 backup software. Wondershare MobileGo just stands out.
