You can back up data from your Samsung Galaxy device manually or automatically. For automatic backup creation, enabling a relevant function on the phone settings is necessary. 

To back up data from your Samsung phone manually, a registered Google account must be set up in the system. In addition, the phone must also have a stable internet connection either through Wi-Fi or cellular/mobile data network.

Below is a step-by-step walkthrough about manually backing up data from the Galaxy Z Flip4 to Google Drive. Feel free to refer to this guide whenever you need help in the process.

  1. First, open the Settings app by tapping on the gear-shaped icon from the Home screen or Apps screen of your phone.



    Alternatively, you can launch the app through the quick settings panel. Just tap on the Settings app shortcut (gear icon) located on the top-right corner of the screen.

    Either way will take you to the same settings menu.

  2. In the Settings menu, scroll to find then tap Accounts and backup.



    On the next screen, you will see relevant features and options to manage different types of accounts set up on the phone.

  3. To continue, navigate to the Google Drive section then tap Back up data.



    The Backup menu will load up next. Here, you will see the account that's set for system storage. Beneath are itemized Backup details and other relevant information.

  4. If you want to back up using mobile data or metered Wi-Fi data, scroll down to the Advanced settings section then tap to turn on the Back up using mobile data or metered Wi-Fi data switch.



    Consider activating this feature if you're using mobile data for  your phone's internet connection. Otherwise, leave the switch OFF and skip to the next step.

  5. If you're all set to start backing up files, tap the Back up now button beneath the Backup by Google One toggle.



    Doing so will prompt your device to start backing up files to Google Drive, particularly through the Google account that's set up in the system.

The entire backing up process may take several minutes to complete depending on the amount of data to copy. Just keep your phone sufficiently charged and connected to the internet.

Setting up a Google/Gmail account is one of the first things that you do during the initial setup of an Android smartphone. This is highly recommended considering that most of the apps and services on Android phones require a registered Google account in order to work as intended.

Aside from downloading and using Android apps, having a Google account is also needed so you can back up important contents from your phone to Google cloud services or Google Drive.

So if you haven’t already, add and set up your Google account and back up your phone data to ensure that all your apps, contacts, and other saved files are securely kept in your drive.

And that’s all about manually backing up data from the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 to Google Drive.
